In Egypt, the remains of Hatshepsut, the female pharoah who reigned from 1479 to 1458 BCE during the eighteenth dynasty have been positively identified. Hatshepsut wore the traditional false beard of the pharoah and is portrayed in art as both male and female. The spiritually elevated can cross sexes in many tribal traditions. Hatshepsut was taken for the favority of Amun, who gives life with his breath.
Interestingly, as Hatshepsut was re-emerging in Egypt, the Grand Mufti of Egypt has declared that female circumcision, a desexing, is forbidden by Islamic law, thereby preserving the sexuality of a future generation. Those of us who believe in synchronicity see this as a directly related story.
