Have you ever wondered if you were born the wrong gender?

I'm not talking about WANTING to be opposite of what you are, but do you ever think that maybe one of the chromosomes in the womb accidentally went in the wrong slot? Take me for instance, I HATE hair, and for the most part chicks are pretty much hairless (except for peach fuzziness) or they are supposed to shave....where as guys get picked on if they are found out to be shaving their legs. Or some chicks just have a dominant presecence that supposedly only men are supposed have whereas women are "usually" more on the reserved side......thoughts.....

They had this scientific experiment, where they put devices on males that sent signals of the pain of birth contractions... They guys reacted worse than females!
Report as
I was about to say that! When a male gets hit in the testes, it is much more painful than giving birth..
Report as
star_girl women were built to handle the pain of birth contractions men werent
Report as
trust me i think going into hours of labor would be much more painful than a guy getting hit in the testies

No. I believe we are all born a certain way for a reason, including our gender. Males and females are very different from eachother, and carry very different roles, and have different influences on people. I think god made me a female for a reason, just like he made someone else a male for a reason, or someone else a female. Some people might have more feminine or macular sides or characteristics to them, and I think we all do to an extent, but it doesn't make up our whole being.

Ever heard of androgen insensitivity syndrome? Should look it up, it's quite interesting.
Report as
Will do.

Oh, so its true.

It's when females (they are still females) are still developing on the womb, the chemical that determines gender becomes obscured (or something) anyway, female is born with no uterios (and internal t3sticles that have to get removed) and she has xxy chromosomes.

Eh, sort of. There's a video on YouTube that explains it really well. Maybe I'll post it if I find it :) some babies are born with two parts, and they can choose which gender they want to be (completely different issue than androgen though.) there's a conflict of parents choosing the gender they want, and removing it when the child is born, and sometimes the child wishes they were a boy or a girl.
Report as
star-girl, the instances you speak of "babies born with two parts", is considered,
"True Hermaphroditism" and is virtually unknown as occurring Naturally in Humans.cases referred to as such are more likely forms of Ovotestes.

The genes are that way because of man’s fallen condition in a spiritual sense. So even if scientists one day can find a way to control the genes, the problem will still not be solved, because that which feeds the genes, which is the soul and the spirit of man, cannot be changed by medical or psychological procedured, but only by the Power of God. While it is true that the seed of original sin carries with it every type of deviation, aberration and perversion, the homosexual cannot claim to have been born that way any more than the alcoholic, gambler, murderer etc, However, I think it is correct to say that the gene pool which constitutes the character and personality make up of every individual is more predisposed toward some aberrations in certain individuals than others.

Yeez yabeel, he isn't referring in any way to "Sexual Orientation! Homosexuality has nothing whatsoever with this question.
Report as
When you don't know the answer to the question" do you ever think that maybe one of the chromosomes in the womb accidentally went in the wrong slot, while asking the question " have you ever wondered if you were born the wrong gender?", just because they state "I'm not talking about WANTING to be opposite of what gender you are",it is referring in every way to "Sexual Orientation"! I simply answered the question from what scientist have observed, and by the biblical standpoint. All you have to do is just look at the answers that people are giving. The evidence will speaks for itself.
Report as
Ai-ja-jai..yabeel, did you read my answer down below? Did you make an effort to refer to the "more info" I mentioned? Did you check some of the myriad of Medical sites where "real science" agrees that: Gender Identity of Intersex individuals to be independent from sexual orientation"??? You may think you are interpreting from a Biblical standpoint... But that would be highly unlikely as the term " intersex" and the DNA knowledge supporting it were not in existence at the time the Bible was transcribed by monks in remote monasteries. Maybe this would be a good time to "agree to dis-agree".
Report as
I did not look at you comment before answering,because you didn't t ask me to.
My stance is: even though there are a myrid of medical sites. that doesn't mean that these small precentages of cases should be blown out of proportion. There simply are not that many cases as you're making it out to be.I don't need to understand rocket science"so called(1 Tim 6:20)" It still stands even for these very unique cases that it( being this deformed gene) is caused from origional sin my friend.

Did not think I needed to point to "further reading", I just take it as "given" when I check out a question to read what others opinions/facts are and then look into it further if need more clarification. Am just by Nature a Curious person...:-). As I said previously;
yabeel, this may be one of those instances where its prudent to agree to disagree.

When I was little I was a big Tom-boy, as we put it. I had more guy friends than girls, since I didn't like most of them. I get along with guys better in general still, at 15. I used to think maybe I was supposed to be a boy, but as I got older I've realized I do sometimes have a girly side. I've realized I'm okay with being a girl, I wouldn't change it but I think being a guy would be better

"Just the Facts"(lol),
"Intersex", in humans(, not to be confused with "Hermaphroditism"), is a variation in Sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, and/or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as female/ male binary.....(see "Intersex" on Wikipedia).
......genital Ambiguity
......gender identity confusion
......may never even be aware unless genetic testing done
....Research:......GENDER IDENTITY of Intersex individuals to be INDEPENDENT of SEXUAL ORIENTATION.....
....research........Growing Medical consensus that diverse intersex physicalities are normal- if relatively rare- forms of HumanBiology.
For more see: Wikipedia: "Intersex"
Waaay to much info ( interesting!!)

For a split second...maybe. I'm not exactly the most "girly girl" (sometimes I wish I was...just a little bit more), but if I was a man...ugh...I'd be the biggest wuss out there! So...my final answer would be no. :p
