He/she discussion(very important discussion)

Just wanted to know what others experiences are on the he/she's in the population. Have you ever had one of these individuals turn out fertile?

What are the proportions of the population that are he/she? Is this a form of social gene repression? Once they go down that path and are phenotype female but genotype male, can you ever get these individuals to be reproductively successful?

My personal thoughts are that dominant males will repress the phenotype male expression in subordinate males, making them look and act female. However, once this occurs, can those subordinate males ever become fully male again?

Could temperature have any effects on sex determination post hatch?????? With social behaviors driving the action? Frank thoughts?
