I'm not sure what would genuinely be "feminine mannersisms" in a kid of 3. Lots of kids show unexpected behaviours at this sort of age --- a boy may be interested in dolls, a girl in cricket. Its usually not sinister unless extreme. Have you sat down with him and discussed what he means when he refers to himself as a girl ? What does he think makes someone a bot or a girl ?
