AO2
on the other hand some studies have also found nature to be more important than nurture.Reiner and Gearhart studies 16 bio males who had been reassigned as girls. by 16 10/16 had been changed back to boys showing it is rare for nurture to beat nature

further evidence of nature being more important is when luxe studied children and animals under 2 and found a strong preference in sex appropriate toys
