My intention was to present the emotions, which are indeed psychological. Of course, ALL embryo's begin as females, and the male sexual characteristics are developed later, which sets up a scenario for something to go astray, as with all our other organs and body functions.

We are born with a myriad of differences, malfunctions, some of them in the mind, such as IQ, and personality traits. Why not gender?

I can't/won't dismiss the emotional aspects of this, as for the moment, this is what we have. Some doctors have begun listening to patients, which I don't think they have much in the past. As time rolls on, I believe a medical interpretation will be discovered, but it is likely an isolated and rare difference, and could take a lot of research to discover. I doubt research money for this is a priority right now.

In the meantime, if someone tells me that have pain in their knee, I believe them. If they tell me they have pain in their psyche, I believe them.

No the Biblical view "facilitates" their view today. They derive morality from the Bible.

Doesn't mean we shouldn't look for a clear diagnosis with a treatment to correct it that doesn't involve augmenting the body. The variance is in the brain, physicians should look to diagnose and treat the brain.
