I post this for the sake of discussion, not because I agree or disagree with what the article says. Another point to consider in how we feel about our gender is spirituality—that is, the idea of spiritual influences.
Because our world is so in the dark, however, this important element is rarely recognized and even less discussed.
There is some Catholic literature on the topic of spiritual influences, however. I think interested people should check it out.

Psychiatry tends to see people as brain-machines influenced by upbringing, culture and the body. This is a sad state of affairs. I personally don’t see people truly healing and evolving without a sincere form of spirituality.
