  1. Ok… Um… So, the sun and moon one? I’m kind of confused. I get the punchline, but not the lead-up. Referring to the sun as male and the moon as female? Is there a cultural reference there I don’t know? I mean, it’s the “man in the moon” not the “woman”. And that aside, I didn’t know there was a gender typically assigned to either, really. Literally the only connection I can think of is to Greek mythology, with Apollo being the god of the sun and his twin sister Artemis being the goddess of the moon. But this post sounds like its referring to something else. Maybe? I’m really not sure.
    *Just to be clear, I’m not being sarcastic or a jerk… and I’m not saying it’s a bad post. I just legitimately don’t get the reference. A little help?*

    1. The sun was shining on the sea,
      Shining with all his might:
      He did his very best to make
      The billows smooth and bright–
      And this was odd, because it was
      The middle of the night.

      The moon was shining sulkily,
      Because she thought the sun
      Had got no business to be there
      After the day was done–
      “It’s very rude of him,” she said,
      “To come and spoil the fun!”

      From ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’, by Lewis Carroll

    2. In many folk stories, the sun is tied to a male deity or other personification, while the moon’s avatar/personification is a female. This is true for Greek and Roman myths, for example, but extends to many others. I’m not an expert, but I feel that it is only rarely that there is a female sun deity and a male moon deity, as is the case with the Japanese deities Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi.

    3. In almost every mythology from the Greeks to the Japanese humans have attributed male characteristics to the sun and female characteristics to the moon. Furthermore most of those female characteristics were negative. The sun is glory and enlightenment where the moon is inferior and changeable and dark. This is not only do to good old fashioned sexism but most if not all ancient peoples relied on a lunar calendar and menstruation has long been associated with the waxing and waning of the moon.

      1. Well actually, Japanese is one of the few languages in the world where the sun is female and the moon is male.
        One of the few other languages is German.
        And in both it has the same reason: because in their ancient mythologies, the sun was a female godess while the moon was a male god.
        But you are right, in many other mythologies (e.g. greek) the sun is male and the moon female.

        1. Ok a quick google search reveals that sometimes the “sun” was actually a “star”….or the whole thing was made up via American folklore… if you’ve read this far… thanks and sorry for wasting your time 🙂

    4. In most romance languages that use grammatical gender, the sun is masculine and uses a male pronoun and the moon is feminine and uses a female pronoun. In Spanish: El Sol and La Luna. In French: le soleil and la lune.

      Surprisingly, it’s the opposite in Germanic languages: die sonne and der mond.

      1. I have never commented on these things, but seriously, I just laughed so hard at this response. I am crying. Right now. At work.

    5. You’re looking at the wrong gods. In Greek mythology, it would be Helios and Selene. In Roman mythology, after which the bodies in our solar system are named, it would be Sol and Luna.

    6. In many languages that have gender-specific articles, the moon is male (“la lune” in French) while the sun is female (“le soleil”). That’s all I could come up with. However, in German, for instance, it’s the reverse.

    7. I came here for the same reason! The moon is trick though. Artemis is the goddess of it, but she loved a mortal named Endymion (whom she basically raped, as the Greek/Roman gods are wont to do), and enchanted him with eternal sleep so she could keep… uh… well the kid-friendly legend says “kissing” him… without her siblings knowing about it. So he got partial Moon-godship privileges, even though he wasn’t awake to realize it. Also her other boyfriend Orion kind of has partial Moon godship privileges. Kind of. After he died. Because she shot him.

      The Greeks and Romans had issues.

    8. Generally the bodies themselves are personified as male and female, respectively, lots of sources on how that happened, but that’s generally the cultural jist, most basic way I can explain this to you is that in gendered languages where every noun has a gender, the moon is a female gendered noun and the sun is male gendered, atleast in latin based languages, that is.

    9. In Spanish we have gender for all nouns, and I can confirm that, at least in Spanish, the sun is male “El sol” and the moon is female “La luna”. I don’t know about other languages with gender for all nouns.

    10. In Indo-Pak culture, both the sun and the moon are males.

      Moon is our uncle on our maternal side (mother’s brother).
      Sun is our uncle on paternal side (father’s brother)

      If you know Urdu/Hindi, they are known as “Chanda Mama” (Uncle Moon) and “Suraj Chachoo” (Uncle Sun).

    11. Fun (somewhat related) “fact”:

      Outhouses have a “moon” in the doors because they were originally the ones designated to women. There were ones for men with a “sun” in them, but they were done away with as it was cheaper to just make men pee in the bushes/alley than maintain two outhouses – I’m assuming this was public outhouses. I honestly wonder how big the “sun” was as it strikes me as totally awkward having a big round hole in the door of the loo!

      Not sure how much of this is even accurate, but I read about it in a book…. about outhouses… while in an outhouse in Alaska.

    12. In Portuguese the nouns always have a female or male “the”. Meaning, in Portuguese we say “a lua” (the moon) with a female “the”. We say “o sol” (which is the sun) with a male “the”. Most of the words are used with a “male” the.

      I guess the person that made the post also lives in a country that differs. I think that most Latin-based languages use male/female pronouns and stuff.

    13. I’m guessing your first language is English? You guys apply the gender-neutral pronoun “it” when referring to objects and other non-gendered stuff, like the sun and the moon, However, in other languages (I know this happens with most romance languages) that pronoun doesn’t exist so things have a grammatical gender. It doesn’t have a logic behind it on a semantic level. For example, in portuguese the word “dress”, typically associated with femininity, is male (“o vestido”). So, in this system, the moon is a woman (la lune, la luna, a lua), and the sun is a man (le soleil, el sol, il sole, o sol). Hope this helped

    14. “The man and the moon” References to how the moon looks like it has the face of a man with its craters. The woman and man of sun and moon references to Mexican culture and such. :3

    15. Its from ancient Roman mythology, in which Luna was the goddess of the moon, and most things to do with the moon, like the phases, and Sol was the god of the sun. These are also the names that most people will give for the actual names of the sun and moon, as “moon” and “sun” are general terms. <3

    16. it was actually Helios and Selene. they were the titans of the sun and moon, however people normally associate Artemis and Apollo with the sun and moon. Even the ancient greeks.

  2. For the sun and moon one, it may be based in ancient Greek mythology. Apollo was the god of the sun. His sister Artemis was the goddess of the moon.

    Also, many people draw parallels between menstrual cyccles and the lunar cycle.

    1. Well, it’s not like biological men have 2 X-Chromosomes. They have one, and the other one – Y – is not doing much. So he would just be infertile and probably has some problems on a cellular level. I do not see why he should be female.

      1. The Y chromosome really does a lot! In XY individuals, the Y chromosome is the one that carries the set of genes necessary for masculinisation during development (the SRY locus: sex determining region Y). These genes aren’t the only fundamental “male” genes of course, but they’re really the most important ones (for example they are the ones that initiate testicle formation during embryogenesis). Male secondary sex characteristics just don’t pop out without the Y chromosome. Just because it’s shorter than the X doesn’t mean it’s not doing much 😉 also, for example, people with XXY trisomy still have a male phenotype (although with infertility issues and smaller testicles, and sometimes breast growth). So there are biological men with 2 X chromosomes, too!

        And actually, there also are individuals with only an X chromosome (X monosomy) and no Y. It’s called Turner’s syndrome. You’re right, they’re infertile, but these people display a globally female external phenotype and most importantly they do have ovaries (and no testicles! at all! And no other male traits, as far as I know. So technically they’re really female, and not hermaphrodite). As far as I know -again- there are no particular problems on the cellular level, it’s mostly hormonal disruptions and sometimes heart issues. So my guess would be monosomic XO female Jesus with ovarian failure!

        (Please correct me if I said something wrong! And sorry if I told you stuff you already knew. Cheers.)

    1. Yeah. And even if He didn’t, then Jesus would only have 1 X chromosome, which wouldn’t make him biologically female and thus transgender, but instead Jesus would have a sever birth defect and possibly be non-viable.

      And it seems blasphemous to compare the Virgin Mary to a species of lizard and decide Jesus must be trans for bullshit reasons that don’t agree with science or religion at all. And I feel like someone would’ve noticed Jesus was actually biologically a woman at some point, particularly at the crucifixion, and probably would’ve mentioned it somewhere in the Bible.

      1. Why would they mention Jesus was a female lizard? It’s not like those writing the Biblical books had happy warm fuzzies for women. Out of the entire Bible, there were only a tiny fraction of women who didn’t die some horrible death.

      2. The bible is stupid. so is jesus and all of the people who “need” him to go about their daily fucking lives. Just be normal. Its not hard.

        1. 84% of the population of the world follows some religion, and religion has been an integral part of humanity for at least 30,000 years. I’m not religious myself, but being religious is the norm.

          In other words, you are the one who is not normal.

  3. It always pisses me off when I see people whip out the “Well what if there’s a universe where the multiverse theory isn’t true?” argument.

    Just stop.

    The variety of different outcomes and natural laws within a single universe cannot change the nature of the multiverse. It’s entirely nonsensical to believe otherwise. If it could, it would cease to be a universe, and instead be a feature of the multiverse. Yes, other universe might have different laws of nature, but there is no way the multiverse theory could be untrue for a specific universe. It’s INSIDE the multiverse, it’s a part of it, a constituent, an intrinsic part of it. A universe is unable to impose it’s own laws of nature upon the entirety of the multiverse. End of story.

    1. There is a universe in which before making that post you had an unexpected psychotic episode and instead decided to express your feelings on the multiverse by coating a watermelon in butter and finding a way to have sex with it.

  4. I never had too big a problem with a human male/giantess mother. What alway got me is the fact that the giant could be a father. (Hagrid asked Olympe which parent it was)

    So do the Giants have super small dicks compared to their size? Does the women perform a spell to make herself big or the giant small? She has to be into it or he would rip her apart making children pretty impossible. So, which is it JK???

    1. Who says there only has to be one way? There must be hundreds of magically viable ways to screw creatures of unusual size or awkward body types, whatever ideas people come up with have probably been tried by wizards in the long history of magic, I think the bigger question now that we know wizards can enjoy relations with pretty much anything is what other creatures have wizards successfully procreated with and what is the offsping?

  5. okay, guys, recovering Catholic:
    Mary was the virgin birth. She had to be born without sin, so she couldn’t be created by sex.

    1. No. Catholicism teaches that God acted upon her soul at conception.

      Secondly, ‘virgin’ literally just means ‘young, unmarried woman’ in the original Aramaic. Of course she wasn’t having sex, but later translators had to go and make it entirely about sex and purity because they couldn’t wrap their tiny minds around the idea of female independence.

      1. Okay. I double checked. I was thinking of the immaculate conception. Wikipedia: “The Immaculate Conception, according to the teaching of the Catholic Church, was the conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the womb of her mother, Saint Anne, free from original sin by virtue of the foreseen merits of her son Jesus Christ.”
