You don't know that.
You give it to an analyst it looks like it could end up neither.
There is such a thing as intersex people.
Also, do we start determining people for their DNA?
What if someone is sure to get Alzheimer's. Do we then start to treat them as they have dementia already?

Genetics and nature would definitely like to disagree with your "gender is a mindset not an organ" comment. Gender is wholly an organ, its how life works. Men have Penises and a scrotum, women have a vagina, and a uterus. Also they have different dominant hormones due to their genetics. So no gender is an organ and not a mindset, if someone doesn't like their gender well then they can lead the genetic field of research for gene therapy to replace sex chromosomes.

My girlfriend recalls memory's when she was younger than 5 and so do I!!
She has ALLWAYS felt she was a girl no question about it, she was first born of 7 and had a very masculin father who tryed to curb the femanin person inside her most of her childhood and made her life hell!!
Saying that it was the parents fault she is like this is stupid!! she came from a small town in central Mexico where people like her were ridiculed and harrassed for.being who theyN were!!
Her own mother told her "if you ever have a child that is gay it's better that the child is dead!"
So there wasNOTHING femanin on how she was raised!!

If you gave a DNA analyst a vial of "her" blood, without a picture, and asked which sex the sample belonged to the DNA would return male.
He is a he.

By what we humans call "physical gender", yes it would show as male.
