Since the beginning of the 60s it is believed the Y-chromosome determine the sex of a child. How exactly this happens has remained a mystery until recently. Moreover, at the disposal of scientists there were facts disproving the decisive role the Y chromosome in shaping masculinity. For example, there are individuals in whom the presence of both X chromosomes did not prevent them from being boys Geneticists call such men reversed women, actually they look as average boys. The matter is that in one of their X chromosomes a section later called "Sex-determining region on Y" or SRY is embedded. Even in the absence of the entire Y-chromosome SRY has a decisive role in determining the gender. This area is responsible for the production of testosterone. This steroid hormone penetrates into cells of growing male fetus and binds to a protein receptor. Then the hormone and the receptor penetrate into the nuclei of cells where they both bind to DNA, and engage the genes needed to make a man.
The opposite issue: many families have mutations damaging the receptor, which usually leads to the birth of a girl. However, during the process of growing, they didn't get their periods. These girls are called male pseudohermaphrodite. They have one clearly masculine trait - their height: in adulthood, they become very high. Here is a controversial story of famous Indian athlete Pinki Pramanik.
Until recently, the inhabitants of village Salinas, the Dominican Republic, wrongly determined the sex of some boys, considering them girls. Such cases are so common that villagers came up with a special nickname for them: guevedoche, or "penis at the age of twelve”. 'penis at twelve' people. All guevedoches lack the enzyme called 5-α-reductase, which converts testosterone into the more potent form dihydroxytestosterone, DHT. Any mutation affecting this enzyme leads to a lack of DHT and external genitalia growth disorders.

So she's bisexual and she's dating a guy. Who cares in either case. She's hot, I'm sure she can date whoever she wants.

Whatever...we are all made of both genetic markers, female and male.

So when does this form of testing become the norm and each of us get a certificate stating if we are OK or not as perceived by the ignorant.

Is it someone one would want to know about their partner and would it make a difference?

Caitlin above is obviously able to date whomever she chooses because she is beautiful. Don't know about her personality but thats the concern of her beloved isn't it.

At least it explains a condition that many from the religiosity would consider to be a gift from the devil. Thank heaven for science.

No, She is Gay. Lesbian. not Bi or any of your fancy words.

Let me google it for you.

Hmmmm


In an exclusive interview with Birdee newspaper, the Aussie actress — who is described as a “nude campaigner, provocateur, ethical porn activist and rising star in the US” — says she dated men because she felt like she had no other choice.

“To be gay in my community was a condemnable offence,” she told Birdee.

“It’s such a f**king dark and terrible thing to admit, but throughout high school I cut myself — I had a lovely upbringing, but I was mortified by the fact that I had these feelings and that I felt gay, and I was constantly being told it was wrong.”


naughty girl...

I don't think "bi" is too fancy of a word but suit yourself.

I say she's not a lesbian because she's dating and I'm assuming banging a guy. But she calls herself a lesbian and I'm assuming that means she bangs women too. She personally said that she likes the term "fluid". So no, she's not just a lesbian.

But who cares as they are all just labels anyway. When you're that hot you can do stuff like that. All fluid and whatever. I wouldn't know as I'm "solid" myself.

Your science is totally wrong. And you didn't post and links or references regarding your claims.

No she is bi..to accept her explanation would suggest that if what your attracted to was not available..one would just switch teams?..not going to happen to this guy. She is bi, or she doesn't know what she is.
I will go with "hot mess"

Glad we clarified the boundaries here.
We wouldn't want some ugly buttheads think that they can do whatever they want. Nothing sexy about an ugly lesbian, is it? so sorry girls, you the not so hot ones have to be straight.

Just joking, of course, but couldn't help noticing the prejudice.

we "humans" are a diverse group. we all have genetic makeup from both parents mom and dad, its super super complicated what markers get activated and which ones dont, you can be sure people have been trying to come up with the best results possible for a very long time and still do today
