Do keep in mind while scientists are searching for “the” reason for TG/TS and all the other human conditions,
… while scientists are looking for a genetic basis for human behavior …
… that 40 years ago, scientific research ALSO showed significant — overwhelming — proof for the effects of unbalanced primary hormones while the fetus was being carried in the womb…
The research showed that offsetting the hormone levels of a pregnant mother with additional testosterone, caused all offspring, regardless of the sex of the offspring, to act “male”
The research also showed that offsetting the hormone levels of a pregnant mother with additional estrogen, would cause all offspring regardless of the sex of the offspring, to act “female”.
Although the experiments were done only on lab animals, over the past thirty years we have found that there is a significant correlation in human beings.
Women who had mis-carried several times, were given additional hormones, usually progesterone, during their next pregnancy, to prevent miscarriage.
Many of the males who were born from these drugged pregnancies, are gay and/or transgendered.
Also, there are a significant number of TG/TS people, M2F as well as F2M, who’s mothers were taking DES, while they were pregnant.
Can there be a chromosomal reason for being TG/TS, or GLBTIQ?
But relying *only* on this theory creates a situation where doctors would be, could be, convinced to genetically modify fetuses. in order to get socially acceptable behavior.
I personally think this is horrifying.
