Sleeping Hermaphrodite (Roman Copy c.150 BCE original)

Sleeping Hermaphrodite 1

I am neither female nor male

and I am both.

That is the purest truth

I can tell you about my gender.

 

Someday, I hope the word “genitalia”

becomes

gene-talia, meaning; having to do with genes”

 

and the word for our gender-markers

becomes

gendertalia, meaning: all which indicates gender in an individual.”
