      so you’ll do a chromosome test on each candidate for scouts?

      And what about those with XXY?

      • Frank

        No of course not. But the idea that we choose our sex/gender is ridiculous! I think most everyone knows the difference between a boy and a girl unless someone misrepresents them. Those parents should be brought up on child abuse charges.

        As far as XXY or Klinefelter syndrome you can read more about it here:

        XXY are still considered males.

        So if you have a Y chromosome you are male.
