University of Minnesota academics say boys and girls pick up speech cues from adults around them, resulting in differences. The gender of children can be picked up from their speech from as young as five years old, researchers have revealed. While male and female children have no physiological reason for sounding different before puberty, when changes to the larynx kick in, researchers say boys and girls pick up telltale speech cues from adults around them, resulting in perceptible differences in their speech. Some of the boys in the latter group had received a diagnosis of gender identity disorder GID based on behaviours such as playing with toys traditionally associated with girls, or wanting to wear female clothes or be called by a female name. Gender dysphoria, the currently used term, is now diagnosed only when such behaviour is distressing to the child. The findings are based on research by Munson and colleagues involving 96 children aged between five and 13, who were recorded saying particular words.

Like many other legends, it has enough truth—some Spaniards indeed do speak with something that the uninformed might call a lisp—to be believed, provided one doesn't examine the story too closely. In this case, looking at the story more closely would make one wonder why Spaniards don't also pronounce the letter s with a so-called lisp.
If this question is so stupid, they why don't you have an answer? I just wondered because a friend of mine just "came out" last year and all of a sudden he developed a lisp. Kristen I love it when people get so angry at this question I'm not going to bash you because I have wondered it myself. I know many gay men are masculine and for the record I am a lesbian
