Chromosomes: X X =female, X Y = male, XX Y - also male. There are many variations but any cell with a Y chromosome is genetically a male. It is possible that this person was born with ambiguous genitalia due to an inability to utilise testosterone in utero. This will produce a baby who, to all intents and purposes gives the impression of being female. The inability to utilise testosterone is lifelong and such babies are usually brought up as females.
