Thank you, Daniel Yours is an intriguing question, Daniel, about which I unfortunately know nothing.So I've asked one of our Reasonable Faith volunteers who has done some thinking in this area to address your question.

No wonder so many people think they were born gay, lesbian, or transgendered!

They can’t remember all the way back to birth when the messages they received about who they were, had yet to be delivered.

Let me preface my comments by saying that I'm not an expert in this matter; nonetheless, I'll do my best to think clearly about the issues.

I'll take your questions one at a time (I've re-worded some).

Gender identity is a developmental issue, and it starts at birth.

All the many, many layers of affirmation and validation of one’s personhood that contribute to self-understanding (of which gender is a part) start getting laid down the moment one is born, and they go on hour by hour, day by day, for years in childhood.

The term “hermaphrodite” is applied to human beings who possess both male and female genitalia, however, this biological condition is very rare among humans.

There are three types of hermaphrodites: “true,” “female pseudo-hermaphrodite,” and “male pseudo-hermaphrodite.” The main difference among these three hermaphroditical types is the nature of the sexual organs.

God doesn’t create a person with the genitals of a male and the consciousness and heart of a female. Maleness and femaleness are God’s choice, determined at conception.

In Genesis , the Bible says, “And God created man in His image, in His likeness; male and female He created them . But growing into one’s masculinity or femininity and it can be thwarted by very early events that prevent children from having a clear sense of their gender.

To get to the point, what is the moral thing to do for a hermaphrodite? If they decide to engage in a relationship, how will they determine which sex to date? I am well aware of what the bible has to say about engaging in homosexual activity, but would it be considered moral for someone who has both reproductive organs to choose which gender to date?
