BBC said in its story ‘The Extraordinary Story of the Guevados’ that the people here consider the village cursed because of the girls becoming boys.

Gender Change Starts By The Age Of 12

Due to such incidents, people fear having a daughter in their house. The situation has become such that there is mourning when a girl child is born in this village. Due to these strange incidents, the number of girls in the town is also decreasing significantly.

The Girl Suffering From The Disease Told

Talking to BBC, a girl named Johnny, a resident of this village, said, “I did not like to dress as a girl, and when I got girls’ toys, I did not like it, but when I went to the boys’ group. I would have stopped playing ball with him if I had seen it.

What Do Doctors Say

According to the report, doctors in this village say some genetic disease is behind all this.

Along with this, the voice begins changing with increasing age. The voice automatically starts becoming heavy.
