As first observed by a Cornell University researcher in the 1970s, one in about 90 children in and around Salinas are affected by the mutation, which leads to low levels of an enzyme called 5-α-reductase that typically spurs growth of the penis in utero. In guevedoces, this growth is delayed until puberty. And, after their transformation, many of the newly minted boys prove heterosexual.
A little girl named Carla is currently going through the same transformation, aged nine. Despite being brought up as a girl, his mother noticed that from the age of five he was more inclined towards the rough and tumble play of little boys. He has recently had his hair cut short after wearing plaits for years. “I feel like a man now,” he said. Many decide not to change from their female names, so some men in Salinas have names like Catherine.
Well at this point it will be spitballing . Maybe the answer lies in some other scientific department . dark matter :>) .... just kidding but maybe Ruperts harmonic resonance theory might play into it somehow . What if the tradition there was that once the she is bread the male goes away . Could his vibes actually have some influence inside the womb . There are vids I watched that showed the parents taking actions to read to the child while it was in the womb and they (3 kids) all achieved a very high level of education very early on in their life .
So we know the how, but not the why... there have been other such cases but why is this 'infliction' so prevalent on this island? lack of genetic diversity? isolation? diet? scientists haven't a clue. What do you think?
Not sure how up to date your data is on the Platypus . Just recently it was discovered they actually live and thrive in salt water . Something that overturned what experts had up to that discovery claimed as fact's about the creatures .
look at the beaver duck (otherwise known as the Platypus) isolation and inbreeding may have played it's hand,

Yes, but on Miss Doubtfire, they said a cow is a cow and a bull is a bull

Wondering if these girls retain the vagina and uterus? Do they change from xx to xy?

It seems like they were always boys (XY) but were just genetically prone to the dangley bits developing VERY late.
What an interesting and odd genetic variation
