Ricki Lewis Interviews Amy Lossie for her blog: DNA Science Blog:

Genetics in context on using artificial vaginas for creating a neovagina​

I’m old enough to remember textbooks and biology classes that defined being female as a “default option” in human development.

If the ambiguous sex organ precursors in an embryo “failed” to follow the coveted male route, we became female.

If the SRY gene “failed” to turn on, we became she.

I’d always thought this male-centric teaching of human sexual development disturbingly close to Genesis: “The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man. The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’”

Lost in the discussion was the paradox of the puny Y chromosome and its meager roster of genes compared to the X. So I was happy when discovery of the Wnt gene pathway to femaleness finally came along and validated my existence, beginning the elucidation of the complex gene cascades that sculpt a female reproductive tract.
