I immediately thought of this case having seen an interesting documentary on it. Part of the documentary involved the discovery of a very small part of the brain which seems to tell the person what gender they are. Interesting stuff, but nothing to mess with a kid about.
My cousin had 6 kids. The 4 in the middle are about the same age. 3 are girls; 1 is a boy. When the boy was little, he wanted everything his sisters had- long hair, princess dresses, ribbons, etc. When he was 3, they were at Disney World and he begged for a Tinkerbell costume. They happened to be there during "*** Days" and there was no shortage of male couples offering to buy it for him. His parents declined the offers.
He is extremely tall for his age, and if the height estimates are right, he will end up at around 6'9" and 320 pounds (assuming he is not overweight). At that point, his parents figure he can wear all the Tinkerbell outfits he wants.
