The main character in this story was born a boy but had an accident as a baby and was left without a penis. The doctor tells the parents to raise him as a girl. He has therapy, and is made to do all "girl" things, as in dresses, girl toys, etc. He has interest in boy things and is persuaded away from them. He feels like a boy and is attracted to girls. Trying to do this doesn't stick. He reverts to be recognized as male. This is very short so it doesn't get into everything, but you do witness some of his efforts at relationships with a girl and his parents.
