Gender Identity in Children

I'm listening to a really interesting series of stories on NPR about gender identity in children.
In two parts they talk about 3 boys who from a very young (we are talking 2-3) KNOWING they were girls and how their parents deal with it.
It is a really interesting phenomenon.

Part One: Two Families Grapple with Sons' Gender Preferences
Part Two: Parents Consider Treatment to Delay Son's Puberty
