In 1966, David Reimer's circumcision was botched and he lost his penis to burns. Psychologist John Money suggested that David be given a sex change, his parents agreed. Money then used David to prove that gender identity was not inborn, but determined by upbringing. David was renamed Brenda and surgically altered to have a vagina. Brenda acted like a boy throughout childhood. At 14, Brenda was told the truth, and decided to go back to being David. He committed suicide at the age of 38.
