Thank you for the articles, interesting reading. I had heard some of this before, but had never seen it laid out so eloquently.

before European "christians" forced Native Americans to have just 2 specific Genders, they had at least 5
"In fact, people who had both female and male characteristics were viewed as gifted by nature, and therefore, able to see both sides of everything. According to Indian Country Today, all native communities acknowledged the following gender roles: “Female, male, Two Spirit female, Two Spirit male and Transgendered.”
I keep hearing how hermophrodytes are not only coveted but more intelligent in past societies. Must have been nice.
