May I lay before you trans women in 2nd cent AD Syria, in a validated Greek text? Theory has it their traditions dated back to at least 660BCE, & have been reflected until very recently right across to SE Asia, but were erased by xtianity to the west.
For that SE Asia connection, the Kathoey of ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ were Buddhist temple dancers, & the Kothi, Aravani, & Hijra of ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ may have been too, before Hinduism, & Islam. Here's an ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Aravani dancer who had surgery at 10yo
Are the Aravani trans women? Most say they are women, even though some Hijra identify as #3rdGender. See what you thinkโ€ฆ Here is another, younger, married, ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณAravani dancer
