Who is men and how are they formed?

As most male mammals, a male genome usually inherits his mother’s X chromosome, and his father’s Y chromosome.

Generally, the male fetus develops bigger amounts of androgens and smaller quantities of estrogens than a female fetus.

This difference in the relative quantities of these sex steroids is largely responsible for the differences in physiology which distinguish men from women.

Hormones which stimulate the production of androgen during puberty result in the development of secondary sexual characteristics, thus exhibiting greater gender differences.

Nevertheless, certain transgender and intersex people do have exceptions to the above.
