Mystery ‘sex change’ has curious flocking to Myanmar monk-to-be
Thin Sandar, a chicken seller in Myanmar, had always dreamed of being a man. When she inexplicably grew a male organ last month, the 21-year-old
treated it as an awe-inspiring omen as have the thousands of stunned villagers who have travelled to a pagoda to see him.
“On the morning of the full moon day of June 21, I noticed my thing (sex organ) was not the same as before,” Thin Sandar, who now goes by the male
name Than Sein, told AFP in an interview at his home. “And my breasts disappeared,” Than Sein added. “So I called out and showed it all to my
mom and dad. It was very strange.” Strange enough that he has attracted significant attention in this deeply superstitious country, where the
unexplained can quickly be exalted to hold powerful spiritual significance.

I stumbled onto this looking around on google news.
I don't buy this story at all. Is paktribune legit? I looked at their other news stories and I didn't see any thing else weird like this.
The story goes on and says that her birth certificate says she was a woman and doctors have inspected her 'new' genitalia.
I've got a question:
Since this is the "Website Related Forum", what is the conspiracy in that article? It sounds more like sensationalism from World Weekly News than
any kind of info or evidence of conspiracy.
I don't buy it either. You don't just "grow" a penis overnight which, as far as I can tell, is what happened. She'd have noticed if someone did
something over night to her. Weird sort of miracle to try and hoax, though.
