Sex as well as Sexual (Gender) identity throughout my lifetime has been a topic inadequately understood and inadequately explained in too many quarters.  Thus we hear totally uneducated and ignorant pronouncements about people’s sexual “choices”.  That was more understandable back in the 70’s when we had less factual information, but it is not as acceptable in an age when we have learned so much!   We also hear about things like a woman’s rights, or lack of them, related to her own body, with too many people also being permissive about things like rape -  at least when it happens to women.  Some of the statements made by some political figures are so dumb they make me wonder how they ever managed to have children – but of course HORMONES are the answer.   But there are many hormones and many tissues in the body that work together to create gender identity – it is not just a simple switch where if Chromosomes are XX you are a girl and if they are XY you are a boy and you are automatically attracted to the opposite sex.  This program is to give you some accurate knowledge about the many things that determine our sexual identity, and it is just as complex as all the things that determine everything else that makes us uniquely individual human beings. We will also look at some frequently unidentified positives that arise with these issues.  BTW, it is NOT an issue that is  unique to human beings, but happens in other animals too - at least in land mammals and Dolphins.  I haven’t researched further than that yet J
