Author writing about William Cowper, 18th C poet, needs to tackle his alleged hermaphroditism. Can anyone direct me to good up-to-date material on this condition? Is it more likely for full/partial hermaphrodites to be identified as girls at birth, and then have their sex re-attributed in late adolescence, as in the case of hercule Barbin, rather than vice versa?
