On this blog, I will refer to all ‘transgendered’ individuals using the pronoun which matches the sex they were born with.

This is a general rule; however, there are exceptions. The exceptions are those truly rare individuals who are born as hermaphrodites–where the birth gender was initially in question. The other exception would be androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS), which causes genetically male (XY) individuals to fail to respond to masculinizing hormones from the earliest stages of their development, and are born and live their entire lives as females.
