Scientists Find Genetic Link To Being TRANSGENDER, Say It May Help To Reduce Discrimination

Researchers at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia have discovered that gender dysphoria may have a biological basis, reports New York Post.

The study examined the genetic variations of 380 transgender women and compared it to that of non-transgender men.

Within the transgender women, they found a significant over-representation of four genes that are involved in processing sex hormones. This variation suggests a potential biological reason as to why certain people experience gender dysphoria.

Speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Company, lead author Professor Vincent Harley said: “While it should not hinge on science to validate people’s individuality and lived experience, these findings may help to reduce discrimination.”
