A Femmekin Glossary

Melini and ChelanaWe are compiling a glossary of basic Femmekin terminology, so that all the terms we use will not seem so obscure! We shall probably be adding to it from time to time, but here it is to get us all started!

Chelani: One of the two intemorphic sexes. Physically very much weaker than melini, often considered the more spiritual sex. Melini are ruled by Sai Sushuri, the principle of Universal Love. In some races blonde hair is a secondary sexual characteristic of chelani, and they are sometimes colloquially referred to as ‘blondes’.

Complementary Sexes: Chelani and melini are complimentary sexes, both feminine. They are based, respectively, on the complementary principles of Sushuri (intemorphic Venus) and Thame (intemorphic Jupiter), rather than the opposite principles of Venus and Mars (Sushuri and Vikhe).

Femininity: The primary state of life. Just as the sun and moon existed long before the physical bodies that currently represent the Solar and Lunar principles to the Earth (and as these and all the seven planetary principles are represented in every world and dimension) . So femininity existed long before there were female creatures (or intemorphs) to manifest it. The principle comes first, the subtle manifestation second, the gross manifestation long afterward.

According to intemorph thought, femininity is not merely the counterpart to masculinity, but is the natural condition of life (a fact perhaps underscored on the biological level by the fact that in Telluri, feminine mental and physical characteristics are primary in all creatures and masculine ones are only created by exposure in the womb – and then at puberty – to masculinising hormones). Masculinity is one possible branching-off from the central Reality. So there are worlds in which masculinity exists and worlds in which it does not, but femininity is universal.

Intemorph: (Race or individual) having two complementary sexes, both feminine, known as chelani and melini.

Melini: Intemorph sex ruled by Sai Thame, the principle of Harmony and Order. Melini are very strong physically (more so than most masculi) and very protective toward chelani. In some intemorph races dark hair is a secondary sexual characteristic of melini, and they are sometimes known colloquially as ‘brunettes’.

Schizomorph: (Race or individual) having two opposite sexes, one masculine, one feminine, known as male and female (in Raihiralan mascul and femin).

  1. Actually: How does this species procreate?

    Because if both sexes can effectively fertilize ánd carry the child, they are considered both male and female, or, in some scenarios, where the act of mating would be unnescessary, neither male nor female.

    If only one sex can carry child, and only one sex can fertilize, then you’re already dividing female and male genders. These are the laws of biology.

    If you state that having breasts makes you female: Ehm.. No. Additional fat tissue on the chest muscles do not make you female. If you state that the ability to suckle makes you female: Again; tricky one. Male humans, for example, are physically able to breastfeed children. Since they have a shortage of certain female hormones, they will not produce a lot of milk, and will only do so after lengthy stimulation of the nipples, and thus milk glands.

    Now; for a penis: Birds of all genders have a cloaca. Same goes for various species of reptiles. Animals who have a cloaca do not have a penis, yet this does not refrain a male member of said species to fertilize a female member of same species.

    What makes a female a female, on biological standards, is only one thing, really: The inborn carrying capacity of egg-cells. Various groups of species have various ways of fertilization; in the womb, or outside the body. Most groups spawn eggs, which are sometimes fertilized after spawning, and sometimes fertilized before, and mammals spawn their non-coated eggs in their womb, where it is fertilized, and the child will not emerge from it until it would normally hatch. (Platypus excepted.)

    Because of these biological laws of fertilization, there can be no procreation of a multi-cellular life-form without fertilization, unless, of course, you count cloning as a valid natural process. It does happen, in only a very small amount of species on this earth, but weakens the species’ DNA structure to such an amount as that it will still only happen when there is no other option.

    It is, however, possible for a species to have two different genders, who are so much alike that there are no other real differences, except for breeding roles. Female hyenas, for example, sport a penis, while male hyenas suckle pups. While female hyenas can penetrate, they cannot fertilize, however.

  2. Honoured Femmekin Sisterhood, if I may make a humble correction…

    “Melini are ruled by Sai Sushuri, the principle of Universal Love.”

    I believe you meant that Chelani are ruled by Sai Sushuri, the Universal Love. Melini are ruled by Sai Thame, the principle of Universal Order and Harmony.

    It seems like a very small mistake, just a slip. But I thought I might being it up to avoid confusion in any strangers to the intemorphic genders.

    Lopting: That last bit about Hyenas is very interesting. I pride myself on my love of animals, and did not know that! thank you for sharing it with us. Unfortunately, I myself am not privy to the technicalities of intemorphic breeding, and so can not answer your questions. But they are very fascinating, and raises some level of curiosity.
