Dating usan tribal women
I would like to think that much of the experience was genuine, although I'm not so naive to believe that accounts of castrated boys raised as wives of Roman or Turkish military leaders were consensual.
History unfortunately sometimes can only touch the surface, not revealing the beauty and ugliness underneath.
In the Middle East (Cradle of Civilization), MTF (male-to-female) priestesses were known to have served Astarte, Dea Syria, Atargatis and Ashtoreth / Ishtar.Additional MTF "gallae" served Cybele, the Phrygians' embodiment of The Great Mother.Trans expression was also present in the early genesis of the Kumbh Mela festival in Allahbad (India).Into the modern age, transfolk resurfaced, but it is a long climb back just to restore any sense of equality.In earliest civilizations, throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Northern Africa, tribes of different types venerated what they often identified as "The Great Mother." In nearly all of these traditions, MTF priestesses (often castrated or with some form of eunuching, which included a number of different body modifications of the time) presided, and the cultures were primarily communal systems which held women (venerated as a source of life) in high esteem.
