Jamie Swanstrom's comment, March 27, 2014 11:28 AM
(Aspect 3) 2. With the belief that gender was neutral for the first two years of life, John performed a surgery on David, who went by the name of Bruce at the time, that removed his testicles and spermatic chord. He was only 22 months old. John William Money told David's parents this was successful in the past, but failed to tell them that it was normally performed on intersex infants but not normal infants. Now, a girl, David went by the name of Brenda. She didn't have a nice childhood.
Jamie Swanstrom's comment, March 27, 2014 11:30 AM
(Aspect 3) 3. Brenda would tear off dresses that her mom bought her and wanted to play with her brother's toys. She was bullied often but Money tried to cover it up by saying "The child's behavior is so clearly that of an active little girl and so different from the boyish ways of her twin brother." No hormones helped Brenda feel like a girl and she couldn't urinate normally. She clearly identified herself as a boy.
Jamie Swanstrom's comment, April 2, 2014 10:51 AM
(Aspect 3) 10. Nothing made David feel like a girl. He sincerely believed that he was a male and wanted to marry a girl when he got older. He was very traumatized by this and had a very rough upbringing.<br>
