Hlaing Thar Yar, Myanmar - Chicken-seller Thin Sandarin had always dreamt of being a man.
When she inexplicably grew a penis last month, the 21-year-old treated it as an awe-inspiring omen - as have the thousands of stunned villagers who have travelled to a pagoda to see him.
"On the morning of the full moon day of June 21, I noticed my thing (sex organ) was not the same as before," Thin Sandar, who now goes by the male name Than Sein, said on Wednesday.
"And my breasts disappeared," Than Sein added. "So I called out and showed it all to my mom and dad. It was very strange."
Experts have examined him, and he awaits test results from a women's hospital. - Sapa-AFP.
