Years ago (on the Oprah Winfrey Show I think), I remember one show which featured people who had been raised as the opposite gender. One of the guests was a man who later "reclaimed" his biological gender as an adult.

Understand, this is NOT to be confused with a later, more recent show which featured kids who identified as being transgendered themselves at a young age and received emotional support from their parents.

I could have sworn in the one I saw, the kids did not have a choice in the matter. Somehow they were kept ignorant by their parents, and did not learn the truth about themselves until they reached their teenage years.
