The Story of David Reimer: Born a boy, Raised as a girl

A bunch of us were talking about the topic of sex reassignment surgery the other week, so I thought I’d dig this one up. 
It’s a story about twin boys born in Winnipeg, Canada. 
A few months after birth, the twins went to the hospital to get circumcised. 
Using electrical circumcision machinery, an accident occurred and David’s penis was burned off. 
With the help of Dr. Money, the family decided to raise David as a girl. 
The ending is quite tragic as you'll see. 
Despite the tragic ending, there is still more emphasis on nurture over nature today!
