David Reimer, the boy who was raised by a girl, was the subject of an IWF symposium back in 2000. More news on his sad demise from iFeminists.com:


The death certificate listed suicide as the official cause of death. But the real cause of his demise was a controversial gender experiment led by one of the most influential sex researchers of the 20th century.

Bruce Reimer was born in 1965 to a blue-collar family in Winnipeg, Canada. Eight months later, he was victimized by a botched circumcision, and baby Bruce ended up without his sex organ.


The distraught family eventually contacted John Money, a charismatic psychologist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Dr. Money was a leading advocate of the idea that sex-role identification is determined by one’s environment, not one’s genetic make-up.


Money recommended sex re-assignment surgery, a dubious procedure that had never been performed on a boy born with normal genitalia. Bruce would be given a vagina, his name would be changed to Brenda, and he would be raised as a girl. It would be as easy as that.


So one month before his second birthday, little Bruce was wheeled into the operating room as a boy, and came out as a girl.
