Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 29, 2017

Australian researchers have identified a significant link between a gene involved in testosterone action and male-to-female transsexualism.
DNA analysis from 112 male-to-female transsexual volunteers showed they were more likely to have a longer version of the androgen receptor gene.
The genetic difference may cause weaker testosterone signals, the team reported in Biological Psychiatry.
However, other genes are also likely to play a part, they stressed.
Increasingly, biological factors are being implicated in gender identity.

It's old but it MAY help Boaz out. Doubtful but miracles DO happen.

I read a study saying two genes on the X chromosome where identified as making men gay. They are conserved because they make women more fertile. That article can no longer be found on the internet, though. Apparently, it wasn't PC enough.

That, or you haven't discovered this thing called Google.

As far as the science, I'm sure subsequent studies would've borne this out over the last dozen years...if it were true.

Convincing BOAZ of your need to be who you are should not take a second of your time Laura.

#3 Huh. So it's finally leaking out again. Note the publishing date on the article: Sunday, Oct 29th 2017. I read this years and years ago, but it vanished from the internet.

"Note the publishing date on the article: Sunday, Oct 29th 2017."

Look closer: "Last updated 9/7/13"

And the original article was from 2004.

#6 What the hell are you talking about? I actually have searched for the article, and it was nowhere to be found. Until today. The papers archive from 2013 probably wasn't online. Grow up.

#6 Also, what I read was the actual science journal article, not something in the Daily Mail. Can you find it?

" What the hell are you talking about?"

Well, at this point, your strange claim this page disappeared for years, until I searched for it.

"I actually have searched for the article, and it was nowhere to be found."

Riiiiiight.

The answer couldn't possibly by connected to the level of your Google skills.

#9 So... you couldn't find the original science journal article either?

#11 That's about transsexualism, not two genes on the X chromosome making men gay.
