I know there are a lot of things that we misunderstand about the afterlife. It's because people preaching the Bible, as any human would, are subject to interpreting what is meant in the Bible their own way. They have their own way of understanding it. Even experts are subject to bias in their interpretations. So who knows what is the correct understanding of what the Bible means? By now, probably nobody does.
Here is what I’m thinking though. God more or less invaded the body of the Virgin Mary as a baby to come to earth in the form of a man. Then He was called Jesus. Now God, according to the Bible, is the only one that can kill a soul. But the day has not come to judge everyone yet. Is it possible that God is responsible returning souls to new bodies? I think that is possible.
So now I’m wondering - could God have sent the soul of someone that has passed away into a pregnant woman to be reborn but as a different gender? Imagine somehow a mistake was made or more likely it was done deliberately that say the woman's baby was a boy but actually the soul of a female was sent instead of a male. Could that be the reason that later on, the boy felt uncomfortable being treated as a boy, because he felt that he was a female. The reverse could also obviously be true as well.
I know God is supposed to be perfect but if that was done on purpose, God must have had a reason to do so. Remember there are a lot of mysteries when it comes to religion and God.
