The Boy Who Was Turned Into A Girl (Documentary)
What determines our gender identity? Is it written into our genetic code at the moment of conception, or can it be instilled during infancy? Does Gender Neutrality exist?
This is the tragic story of a boy whose penis was burned beyond surgical repair during a circumcision attempt, and Dr. John Money a psychologist specializing in the biology of gender who set out to prove that gender identity is nurtured rather than innate.
In 2002, David's twin brother, Brian, died from an overdose on drugs used to treat schizophrenia, apparently, Dr. Money’s therapy sessions with both boys had left him psychologically scarred as well. Two years later, David Reimer, himself committed suicide.
