  2. 2. Summary of Results to Date Sexual Permutations D = Default A = Altered BSTc INAH3 Soma Cell no. & Volume Cell no. Volume Typical female D D D D Lesbian??? FtM androphilic? FtM gynephilic A A A D MtF androphilic (T7) D D D A MtF gynephilic & S7 D D A A Gay male A A D A Typical male A A A A
  3. 3. All Possible Permutations Sexual Permutations *Demonstrated D = Default A = Altered Excluding intersexual conditions BSTc INAH3 Soma Cell no. & Volume Cell no. Volume *Typical female D D D D Lesbian??? D D A D D A D D D A A D A D D D A D A D FtM androphilic?

  5. 5. Three Dimensions of Sexuality <ul><li>Somatic Morphology (X axis) </li></ul><ul><li>Sexual Identity (Y axis) </li></ul><ul><li>Sexual Orientation (Z axis) </li></ul>Everyone occupies a point in this three-dimensional space! Gynemorphic Andromorphic Gynecentric Androcentric Gynephilic Androphilic
  6. 6. Summary <ul><li>Female is default condition; males are altered females; everyone is a variation on this female theme; so many variations exist that there is… </li></ul><ul><li>No good definition of female or male </li></ul><ul><li>Intersexes are of many types and are as natural as the rest of us </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple dimensions of sexuality exist that are biological and programmed in the brain including </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sexual body </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sexual identity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sexual orientation </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Summary (Continued) <ul><li>These sexual dimensions are “inborn” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sexual dimensions are organized (from default to fully altered) by genetic and/or hormonal factors during critical periods of fetal development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Activated later by hormones </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Variations are not necessarily disorders </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Variations are natural events that are the source of diversity in a population </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diversity in a population is an asset, not a liability </li></ul></ul>
