Genetics and Gender identity, Evidence of a link discovered.

Man, I tell you, sometimes the coincidences that occur in this world are just staggering. This is not one of those times, but still....=D

On the heels of my mention in the Carnival of Vanities (see post below) this week, Clayton Cramer has run across an interesting (but preliminary and SMALL I must point out) study that would appear to give evidence that at least some cases of transexualism might have a genetic component. It would appear that it is statistically linked to varying length of genetic "stutters", patterns of DNA that repeat multiple times. This sort of stutter was previously found to be statistically linked to the lengths of a dogs muzzle. No, I know what you are thinking, just DON'T GO THERE!
