This one linked from the first one is good too. https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/news/opinions/two-spirits-one-heart-five-genders/
It's why I like this story so much: http://cheeseburgerbrown.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/gitchy-manitous-bang.html
I'm not sure of the authors background exactly, but he's Canadian, and has rather cleverly mixed 'First Nations' traditional mythology with 'Western' scriptural doctrine, showing the problems it causes if you continually force all your gender variant people to try to feign compliance with more 'traditional' life roles.
(Well it depends on how you want to read it, but it's possibly cautionary tale, essentially the Ashkenazi Jewish diaspora bottleneck got themselves in a situation where they were restricted by the 'host' Christians to certain roles/industries for a couple of centuries, finance due to different usury 'laws', jewellery, (my more distant ancestors were originally silversmiths or something), entertainment? and so selective social pressures made those males with the best academic/business minds the best bets for obtaining social status and getting married, and those with the best academic minds, well you know what I think about Einstein->Asperger's->Transgender, so disproportionately lots of really intellectual Nobel Prize winners, and lots of banking clans, and then well a lot of them escaped europe, especially due to the second world war, and moved to the States and gradually took everything over over the course of the last century or so, till the whole USA is kinda a political puppet of Israel.
Traditional Native Americans closely associate Two Spirited people with having a high functioning intellect (possibly from a life of self-questioning), keen artistic skills and an exceptional capacity for compassion. Rather than being social dead-enders as within Euro-American culture today, they were allowed to fully participate within traditional tribal social structures.
I reckon the tradition of circumcision is a lot to do with this too, which is surely a massive painful shock to the young child's rather fragile psyche, before they are even old enough to remember it, which probably doesn't do nearly as much good as people claim, but creates a kind of base of trauma which causes them to forever seek a wholeness they can never fully experience in this life, so thanks for that 'God'.
It's a very clever bit of viral meme social engineering if you really want to create a 'people set apart' that is very ingroup-centric and seems to eventually fall out with their 'host' population wherever they choose to settle down. Kinda a self-fulfilling prophecy. https://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Unabomber---haunting-heart-/dp/0972253815/
My people have suffered for thousands of years, and I don't give a shit.. you could just choose to stop doing this shit to your kids you know, no one would really mind.. but ah yes, tradition..
(OK, that's not really gonna go down well, bad bad Xora ;-),
Not actually circumcised thankfully, I think my dad was, but I was raised Christian, but still have Ashkenazi Jewish relatives and probably ancestors on my Father's side and my Maternal haplogroup is also actually K1B1A1, so make of that what you will.)
And yeah, obviously the insatiable Western European Imperialist mindset rather is an outgrowth of the ~6 thousand year old, Judeo-Christian culture which has certain things to say about people like us in Leviticus, and no, that's hardly the whole story, coz we've been digging up bones of Neanderthals from ~40,000 years ago, and finding examples of fairly advanced human artwork and things from ~100,000 years ago, so can't we please just forget about that whole Genesis thing now? The world is actually far older and more interesting than that, and the native americans seemingly lived there for thousands of years and managed not to cover the whole place in highways and shopping malls and dust-bowl maize farms.
I do still like the Klezmer music of Sophie Solomon though, that's a real talent..
