Alternative Names

"Hermy," plural "hermies," in reference to their hermaphroditic nature; another might be "herman," conveying the idea that they're "hermaphroditic humans," or maybe even both, with "hermy" being a more informal, playful form of "herman." Relatedly, I do have a question regarding these beings' biology; namely, can they switch genders only once, some limited number of times, or as often as they wish? Further, are they protandrous (born in male-mode) or protogynous (born in female-mode), or maybe even something else entirely? Lastly, assuming these beings don't possess any externally visible genitalia (as per the "tail" human males have), how do individuals in opposing gender-modes interface? (Or, is the answer to this last question "It doesn't matter; it's just a game"?) --Btm pdx


Once technology gets past a certain point, the male skillset becomes obsolete. How can that be worked in? --Tepples 10:55, 13 April 2012 (MST)

I go off on a tangent at User talk:Eighty5cacao/misc/Aspie notes/version 2#People skills-ism; feel free to discuss there. As for this article, I'm still thinking about it. Eighty5cacao 23:36, 13 April 2012 (MST)

It's simpler than that

A scout reports that there's probably nothing too special about their physiology. They probably ended up with endemic 5α-Reductase deficiency, causing ambiguous genitals at birth and thus leading to lack of a gender binary in child-rearing and thus in society. --Tepples (talk) 18:15, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
