Yet another study claiming transgenders are born that way is being discredited.
A study conducted in Spain is suggesting there’s a biological basis for transgender identity. It involved a single MRI done on the brains of 42 transgender people of both born genders. The study – discussed in a January 2016 Scientific American article – indicated the males had brains associated with that of females and vice versa.
But Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, says that’s not how science works. She argues that numerous studies already prove a person’s brain is changed if they live a certain way or behave a certain way.
“For them to prove that the brains of transgender-identifying people are different, they would have to do a study that looks at hundreds and hundreds of infants … and follow that one set of infants into adulthood,” she explains.
