So, yeah, Zefonith's not male any more than Partasah was. ( And, on that note, Gilou isn't female. ) The other characters know this, which is why you're not getting dialogue like, "I gave birth to him which is possible because I am a humanoid alien hermaphrodite!" It'd be like a human saying, "I gave birth to him, which is possible because I am a woman!"

He's also fun to draw.

The usual linkback.

Seconding not understanding all the confusion behind gender in this story. It all makes perfect sense to me. (said the transmale)

I don't know why people find the concept of hermaphrodites confusing. Snails do it.

I want to make that a song now.

Fish do it
Snails do it
Even certain kinds of whales do it*
Let's do it
Let's have both male and female reproductive organs


*Okay, untrue, I just needed a rhyme in a hurry.

No matter what, gender concept in this will always be confusing. It's coming along great, though.

So Zefonith uses gendered pronouns but Partasah doesn't?

They both do if they're talking about specific people with known pronouns. If it's an either/or or unknown, he'd use 'it'.

... but Partasah was talking about Tal, who's a specific, and called him "it"?

He was talking about choosing a co-worker, who could have been either/or.

Been following this since you posted the first pages - and I'll admit I follow your site more - but just wanted to drop you a line and say how much I'm enjoying the unfolding story ;-)
