What makes a man a man? This was the implicit question in a research project about persons born with the sex chromosomal constitution XXY performed by a group of geneticists, psychiatrists, and psychologists in Denmark in the 1960s. The article presents a analysis of how and from which premises the researchers defined whatare the characteristics of normal men and women, and when a man's body, psyche, and behaviour must be described as abnormal and pathological. Furthermore, it is demonstrated what consequenses these definitions had in the following decades for how different individuals were categorised in the Danish health care system, and for if and how they were treated medically.
