So just wondering how this type of situation is dealt with?
Excluding people born with both reproductive organs
To begin with some facts:
-there are only two reproductive organs (vagina/penis)
-the reproductive organs define your gender/sex
-each reproductive organ impacts the development of the individuals brain, body and internal/external processing.
-humans experience life in a first person perspective. We perceive things based on our individual pov.
My questions are the following?
1. How do doctors or people confirm that someone is the wrong gender? There is no factual way for a woman to confirm how it's like to be a man because you can't switch bodies to experience what that must be like. Also, development of the brain is different for each gender, which is why we inherently think, feel and perceive things differently. Your hormones affect the processing of thoughts and feelings. If a f2m has grown up as female then she hasn't experienced what the mind of a man feels like due to testOster one.
2. If the trans people change their gender physically and on their government documents like birth certificate etc. How will they be genetically recognized if God forbid; they were murdered and only the remains were found. The DNA would be of a female and the missing person report states male. shouldn't that be a concern?

Gender: is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and femininity.
Let's get started by defining gender. I always think it's important to just look at that first because it doesn't say anything about being born one gender or a not it's just simply characteristics between the two.
1) there's really no way to prove it. Jut like there's no way to prove I'm gay. There's no gay gene or anything like that. Yet when my girlfriend says "I'm a lesbian" people take her word. So though now one can prove it isn't it just decent neigh to assume that the person knows enough about themselves to be able to make that decision. So I don't get why that can't be the case with gender identification.
If gender is a set of charactersistics that separate female and male then if your a woman who has more make characteristics then can't that men that you may better identify with the male gender.
2) I actually asked about a transgender person. They said they wouldn't mind their drivers liscence to change, they'd prefer it. And that she's fine if her medical records said "male to female transgender". She thinks it's completely appropriate. And be if her records say male her DNA would tell who she is meaning they could just match he back to who she is. Determining whether the victim was male or female isn't relevant in a crime..0
