Hermaphrodite?[edit]

some would say it is actually sacriligious to call her hermaphroditic, or have any relation to transgenderism. i wouldn't entirely agree or disagree. male and femaleness might be a conjured up thing referring to objects in this world....but what would i know. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.10.70.221 (talk) 20:30, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

I know. Somebody made this a transgender-issue article. I have yet to get some sort of explanation for that. Go figure... Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 > haneʼ 21:18, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes, calling "nadleeh" "hermaphroditic" is not just imposing one culture's classifications on another's, but it's bizarrely imposing it. I'm going to try to get my ducks in a row try to improve this confused and confusing situation. Sean M. Burke (talk) 21:17, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
There's nothing in the article itself that says it's a "transgender-issue" article, and the translation of "nadleeh" as "hermaphroditic" is supported by many reliable sources.[1][2] The only possible problem would appear to be the Wikiproject banner on this talk page, as "hermaphroditic" doesn't imply any connection to the modern Western concept of "LGBT", so I've removed it.

I removed this false tidbit from the article. It's kind of weird that this page went all the way to hermaphrodite instead of just putting up a page for the two Navajo deities that actually are, in the most literal sense--no fooling, hermaphrodites. Asdzani Bah (talk) 16:41, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
