Part 4 of "Science & Sexuality." What exactly is a female? male? intersex? What can we learn about sexuality and sexual identity from sex chromosomal variants? Who is Milton Diamond? John Money? John/Joan?
Part 5 of "Science & Sexuality." What can we learn about sexual development and sexual identity from XY individuals with testes who have hormone receptor molecules that don't work at all or only partly?
Part 6 of "Science & Sexuality." What can we learn about sexuality from XX females who have atypically high testosterone influence during fetal development? What can they teach us about the development of sexual identity and sexual orientation?
Part 7 of "Science & Sexuality." What can we learn about sexual identity from genetic males who were altered surgically at birth to look female, treated with "female hormones," and socialized as "girls"? What can we learn from individuals who were exposed to synthetic estrogens "in utero"?
Part 8 of "Science and Sexuality." Is sexual identity a biological reality? How does it develop? What determines a person's sexual identity?
Part 9 of "Science & Sexuality." What determines sexual orientation? Is it learned or inborn? How does culture affect the expression and treatment of sexually different people?
