It used to be thought that "for the first couple of weeks all embryos develop the same." But this has turned out not to be true.
Sex differences have been documented in the placental cells formed by male and female human blastocysts at the stage when the blastocyst implants into the uterine wall and begins growing the placenta. This is usually around 5 days after egg and sperm merged in one of the Fallopian tubes to form a zygote - aka fertilization or conception.
Study of what goes on at the cellular level shows there are numerous sex differences in human and other mammalian embryos that precede the development of the gonads. In other words, a lot of sex differences are are upstream rather than downstream of T.
Many physical sex differences in humans once assumed to be the result of sex hormones and sex hormones alone are actually the result of sex chromosomes and genetics - or of a combination of sex chromosomes, genes, sex hormones, the different sex hormone receptors that males and females have, etc.
In humans who are either 46,XX or 46,XY - which is nearly all of us - thousands of the exact same genes in the human genome have been found to "express" and behave differently depending on whether a person has one or two X chromosomes and has or doesn't have the SRY gene.
Also, just for the record: "male baby brains" don't release T during early development or any other time. The T that drives the development of human males in utero and in after they are born comes from their gonads, the testes.
Yes. The mind and body are not separate. If a man switched bodies with a woman, (if I had to guess) his whole personality, identity and sensory experience would change and his brain would conform to the new bodily systems it's connected to. Believe it or not, but Freaky Friday and Frankenstein are not scientifically accurate depictions of this phenomenon.
This thread is pure ideaology
This man would now experience what it was like to be a transgender man and would pursue medical transition through taking testosterone and surgery.
And have an 80%+ chance of being incontinent for the rest of my life and have to butcher my own arm and cheeks for the privilege? No thanks, I'll keep the fresh new lady bod thanks.
Mentally, you are you except you are now in a woman's body and will have to process that.
Athletically, you are a woman.
Sexually, you get to do whatever you like as long as you can find a consenting partner.
In public bathrooms, you are probably going to struggle.
What is interesting is that Christians, who are generally at the center of the movement against trans rights, believe that we have a soul that is entirely separate from our biological being and that people are created by God and are part of His "intelligent design" versus being the result of the laws of evolution. But when it comes to gender, the same people claim that gender is strictly a manifestation of biology and there is no gender that comes from any notion of the "self" and free will that is independent of biology.
Not sure what your point is but yes, statistically speaking it's highly likely that they are at least partially incontinent. Tends to happen when you try and pee through an infection-prone roll of forearm skin that has a 90% chance of needing further surgery.
I'm genuinely curious why you are so obsessed with trans people? Your constant comments regarding transgender people's bodies, surgical procedures, thoughts, sex lives, daily lives, ability to urinate etc. is pathological and creepy as f***k. If you are truly grossed out by the fact that a very small percentage of human beings are transgender and decide to pursue hormones and surgery, you could simply avoid the topic entirely and focus your attention on the 99+ percentage of people who aren't trans.
And for the record, your made up statistic about 80 percent permanent lifelong incontinence following bottom surgery is completely false. No one would be performing these surgeries if 80 percent of people who had them would be permanently catheterized.
So is a mermaid a fish or a human?
Not sure what exactly people find offensive or inaccurate about this reply. You people do know that your behavior and personality is largely dependent on your hormonal and neurochemical makeup, it's not just the brain, right? This is like basic 9th grade biology.
Where did I say 80% are permanently catheterized? I said 'partially incontinent', i.e. a dribble of warm wee wee, i.e. you.

Beauty contests and sports have different takes on the female body.
Beauty contests are about the appearance of the female body and the performance of femininity. Trans competitors make sense. Miss Universe is like a drag show anyway.
Female athletics are about the performance of the human body not appearances. This justifies separate competitions for biological females and the exclusion of biologically male bodies.
However, whether to allow trans female competitors should not be an issue when the sport determines the winner by judging. There's no justification other than convenience for having separate male and female competitions in figure skating, diving, and many gymnastics events. Also, gender is irrelevant for doubles figure skating.
Sounds like you're triggered. Did you get bottom surgery and now you can't pee properly? I wish you all the best in your recovery.
You have yet to answer my question about why you are so creepily and freakishly obsessed with transgender people. Unless you are transgender or have a family member who is trans, normal people do not think and post constantly about transgender people. You can surround yourself in your little transphobic letsrun safe space with other lonely, bitter, angry online bigots, but to the outside world, devoting so much mental energy to obsessing over transgender people is creepy and pathetic.
You: "If I had the body of a woman I'd immediately have surgery on my genitals."
Me: "I wouldn't, it would probably make me incontinent."
You: "OMG why are you so hateful and obsessed with genitals?!!!? Let me post multiple paragraphs about how hateful and obsessed with genitals you are and also post photos of trans men I'm attracted to."
Good luck with the recovery my friend.
