Gender Identity

Psychiatry (Sciences), 1968

The profound academic notion boys might be different from girls because they are boys or girls, and derive part of their identity from it.

A previously undiscussed idea promoted by Freud-loving psychiatrist Robert Stoller, from the Gender Identity Clinic at UCLA and author of a 1968 book ”Sex and Gender: On the Development of Masculinity and Femininity”, and John Money, whose patients didn’t do too well (see “Assignment at Birth”).
