* Interesting example in an episode of ''Saving Hope''. The team is working on gender-reassignment surgery for a transman but have to stop due to a new medical issue that they can't quite figure out. It turns out the patient was born intersex and, while the doctors advised waiting to see which gender the child identified with before performing surgery, the mom decided to make the child female. This is a huge source of guilt later when it turns out that mom made the "wrong" choice when her daughter decides she'd rather be male.

** Ripped again, following Reimer's story (see the Real Life section) more closely, on "Mental". The key to a patient-of-the-week's self-immolation attempt lied in his disgust for his female body.

** This ended up being RippedFromTheHeadlines on LawAndOrderSVU with a set of identical twins. One of them was this and ended up raised as a girl. Eventually they find out and plot to kill the psychologist who tried to psychologically reprogram one of them as female claiming Nurture over nature.
