Saris: A person who is identiﬁed as “male” at birth but develops “female” characteristics as puberty and/or is lacking a penis. A saris can be “naturally” a saris (saris hamah), or become one through human intervention (saris adam). [Source: 156 references in mishna and Talmud; 379 in

Our Sages non-judgmentally explore the role of intersex people in regards to many facets of ritual and civil law such as circumcision, redemption, oath-taking and menstruation.
The midrash, in Bereshit Rabah, posits that Adam, the first human being, was actually an androgynos. While in the Babylonian Talmud (Yevamot 64a-64b) the radical claim is made that Abraham and Sarah were tumtumim, gender non-conforming people. According to our tradition the first human being and the first Jews were gender outlaws. This teaches us that it is those that transgress the apparently rigid lines of Judaism that have caused the tradition to grow.

NASA SAYS THERE IS A STRANGE AND UNKNOWN SIGNAL COMING FROM THE PERSEUS CLUSTER RIGHT NOW
ITS THE GETH
The entire Mass Effect fandom is losing their shit.
unfortunately, as the cluster is 250 million light years away, and the geth were only created a few centuries ago, it’s not likely to be them. but there’s still something causing that signal! most scientists seem to be assuming dark matter, but, you know, aliens are way cooler.
