2. “The idea that an individual could be “a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body” – in other words, the notion that a gender identity that is independent from or in conflict with biological sex, cannot be supported by scientific evidence.” Continue reading New scientific evidence Mayer and McHugh proves you were not ‘born that way’
