Men and women assuredly exist, and since woman has been birthing babies, boys and girls have been born.  As we know, boys have a sex chromosome pattern of XY, while girls have one of XX, and for the vast majority of cases, the sex pattern, established at conception, for a newborn baby falls into one or the other genotype. However, since the time that babies started being born, occasionally a different chromosomal pattern, established at conception, emerges. A baby born with more than one X chromosome possesses Klinefelter's Syndrome (XXY) while a baby born with just one X chromosome possesses Turner's Syndrome (XO, meaning just one X chromosome and nothing else.)  These chromosomal arrangements will create individuals with ambiguous genitalia. Additionally, although extremely rare, hermaphrodism might occur, where the baby has both male and female structures.  See a full clarification at the link:
