Can identical twins be boy/girl?

On another post there is a person arguing that she knew a boy/girl set of identical twins

Besides turner syndrome (where a baby loses a chromosome in utero) which has only ever happened 4 times is there any other way for a boy/ girl to be identical twins?


I would really like to prove to this person that boy/girl identical twins dont happen (minus the really really really really rare cases)

I think they will always be the same sex. I've never seen boy/girl identical twins.

Identical twins have the same dna code. It is impossible for a male and female to have the same dna.

No. Cause to be identical they have to have the same dna.

Most twins don't know if they are identical or fraternal unless they have had genetic testing done.
