Discuss Riverside Developmental Psychology. Read the article, The Case of John/Joan, and then watch the video link below. This is the story of David Reimer, the boy with no penis. As a toddler, David and his brother were sent for circumcision and the tragically the surgery was botched leaving Davis’s penis mutilated. The parents reach out in desperation to Dr. Money, who offers them a way to “SAVE” their son. After reading and the article, and watching the video link, write a 2-page essay reflecting the following questions:
-How was David impacted by the choice his parents made? Did their choice actually help their son? or did it cause more damage? What were Dr. Money’s true reasons for helping the Reimer’s? and why did Dr. Money’s experiment fail?
