There is this rural village in the Dominican Republic has been found with girls who grow male genital during puberty.
The children are known as Guevedoces, which literally translates to “penis-at-12.” They were born with female genitalia but will later transform it into the male one.
According to the BBC2 series “Countdown to Life” these children of the village called Salinas are genetically male but lacking 5-alpha that converts testosterone to dihydro-testosterone and helps form the penis.
When these children reach their puberty stage, a surge of testosterone will happen that will apparently shape up the male genital.
One of the Children who had this condition is Johnny, once known as Felicita. He said he was forced into wearing red dresses, which he doesn’t enjoy. He will also ignore female toys and will opt to play with the boys of his age.
“I went to school and I used to wear my skirt. I never liked to dress as a girl,” said Johnny. “When they bought me girls toys I never bothered playing with them. All I wanted to do was play with the boys.”
