After recently watching a video called Sex: Unknown, I and my friends started to wonder about the nurture vs. nature debate. The good old debate begins with something like: "Is our personality based on biological needs, or societal influences?" The video starts off with the tragic tale of David Reimer. "When a circumcision operation went horribly wrong, doctors decided to turn the then eight-month-old David Reimer into a girl. It was argued that reassigning sex was easy. Nurturing, not nature, determined psychological make-up." The rest of the video went off to show his tortured adolescene, and studies with rats showed how female rats injected with testosterone not only grew male gentalia, but also engaged in male behaviour (e.g. attempts to mate with other normal females). Up close brain slices showed a growth in the SDM, and that's what scientists think is responsible for males and females. Brains of transexuals show differences as well; males leaning toward a more female structure, and vice versa. Therefore, there is evidence for both sides of the story. What are your thoughts? Should babies with abnormal genitalia be "reassigned"? IS your sexuality based on your brain, or how you were brought up? Because experiments have shown that a male baby placed in blue would elicit comments like "He's a strong, healthy baby.", whereas the same male baby placed in pink clothing would inspire baby talk and gushiness from adults, common behaviour towards a female baby.
