"It was May 15, 2014, and I remember the date because Jackie was out of school that day," she [Mary Carter, Jack's mom] says. "We drove to drop her older sister off at kindergarten. And normally Jackie is quite happy and content to hang out with me and play."
"Jackie just looked really, really sad; sadder than a 3-and-a-half-year-old should look," Carter says.
"So I asked. I said, 'Jackie, are you sad that you're not going to school today?' And Jackie was really quiet and put her head down and said 'No, I'm sad because I'm a boy.' "

I think that some people *are* born "in the wrong body," so to speak, just as I think that some people are born gay.
But I also think that some people *do* decide to become transgender or gay, for whatever reasons.
I do not know the ratio, if such a ratio is even known.

What if he had a spiderman costume and played spiderman all day and said "I am sad because I am not spiderman", would those parents want to inject him spider DNA ?
Around two-years-old, children become conscious of the physical differences between boys and girls. Before their third birthday, most children are easily able to label themselves as either a boy or a girl. By age four, most children have a stable sense of their gender identity. During this same time of life, children learn gender role behavior—that is, doing "things that boys do" or "things that girls do."

My kids are over twice his/her age and barely know what they want for breakfast nine times out of ten.
A three year old has their gender all figured out?
