So you want everyone to believe that you’re some expert in trans genetics and that there’s a trans brain, right?

“ Rebecca appeared ignorant of the neuroscience behind gender identity, and growing genetic research on the matter.”

Are you smarter than Kristina Olson, the researcher?

“ Thus, whereas the topic is an active line of work in many research laboratories around the world, definitive conclusions about genetic and neural correlates of gender identity remain elusive.”

Or maybe you’re smarter than Dr. Paul McHugh?

“ Studies comparing the brain structures of transgender and non-transgender individuals have demonstrated weak correlations between brain structure and cross-gender identification. These correlations do not provide any evidence for a neurobiological basis for cross-gender identification.”

If WHO admits that no one can find a “gay gene” after all these decades, then you’re pretty much out of luck on the transgender genes too.

“ Another area of study has been the search for a ‘gay gene’. However, studies in this area have been inconclusive and debate continues.”

Like Jazz, you have a male brain, and you can’t wish that away.

“ It follows from this that since Jazz is male, every cell of his brain has an X and a Y chromosome (whereas a girl brain would have two X chromosomes). Therefore Jazz in fact has a “boy brain” right down to the very level of the DNA.”

Good job on trying to cast some doubt on the subject, but I feel sorry for you. Hoping that someone will finally prove that your identity is something other than a delusion must be awful.
