Male and Female Potara Fusion?

Post by Zephyr » Sun May 17, 2015 6:05 am

I was about to ask "is it possible?", but then I remembered the Elder Kaioshin, and how he fused with a witch. Now, implicitly, it seems the "previous generations East Kaioshin" was a male, with the witch being female, but that may not actually be the case.

Somewhere I remember it being said that the Kaio and Kaioshin are in fact gender/sex-less, like the Namekians. Thus, there are no males or females.

This then makes the example not an answer to the question of "can a male fuse with a female via potara?"

Which then brings me to my second question. If it is indeed possible.....what happens exactly, in terms of genitalia? Is the resulting fusion a male or female, depending on the "dominance" of one fusee or another? Is it merely an intersex/hermaphrodite? Like, in-universe theorizing time. Please, no need for any sort of social/political discussions about sex or gender, as I could see that being a thing whenever this topic gets brought up.

I would assume the stronger of the two fighters would determine gender.

Hermaphroditos was the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. Born a exceptionally beautiful (but fully male) boy, one day in his youth he journeyed to a hot spring to bathe. There he caught the eye of the water nymph Salmacis and she attempted to seduce him. Too young to understand her flirting, he rebuffed her, so she pretended to leave and waited until he stripped off his clothing to bathe. Then she raped him. Mid-rape she prayed that they would never be separated, and so their bodies fused together.

Hermaphoditos was portrayed with the body and form of a woman, but the vigor and genitalia of a man. Appropriately, the god was invoked at weddings.

There is a chance of it resulting in a drag queen.

There was an old comic book called Doom Patrol where a man and a woman fused into one being... but this being wore a trenchcoat and mask all the time so we had no idea what he/she/it looked like.

If a male and female fuse...

Post by SSJ Human » Sun May 24, 2015 5:25 pm

I think the result will always be female. The reason I'm saying this is because Toriyama once stated it would likely be a drag queen, but honestly, a flat-out female would be a better idea and more practical.

Anyone else have any theories on what would happen?

My best guess would be that they would look neither male or female. As for their genitalia, it'd probably be something akin to that teacher from the 1st episode of "Bible Black".

Dende's not a hermaphrodite. Hermaphrodites can have or have male and female sex organs. Namekians are asexual and therefore, presumably, have neither.

That term is... generally considered offensive, just so you know.

What the hell? :wtf:

This is the first time I've seen something like this, and it will be the last.

Anyways, I sure that if a male and female were to fuse a hermaphrodite would be the result.

Either they complete each other and lack sex-specific characteristics or they combine them.

Really? Is there a slang term for Transexuals that isn't offensive?

I usually don't care about what is or isn't offensive because me and all my friends (straight/gay/bi) call each other "c*m guzzling f*gg*ts" all the time. But for use in casual conversation what do you call transsexuals? Even in casual conversation with people I'm not close to I use the term Tranny and no one has called me out on it. I had a simliar situation with the word "Jap" I used it for years not knowing it was derogatory until a teacher called me out on it.

Well, as a bit of a preface, I'm kinda surprised I said that at all because I'm not usually one to do so. It just happened to pop up as I was submitting my post, and transgender stuff doesn't get enough awareness, so I figured it was worth mentioning since a lot of people don't seem to know what "acceptable" terminology is. Quite frankly, I'm glad you and your friends are able to sling terms like that around freely because, for me, intention trumps word use.

But to answer your question, "trans" is generally the accepted abbreviation for transgender.

Again, I feel that if such a thing were to ever happen in the canon, we'd just get a female. I think that's for the best and would make the most sense.

Just because he looks "male" (which is largely a social construct anyway) doesn't mean he is male. Does he fertilize an egg in reproduction? If not, he is not of the male sex. If he does not identify as a male, then he is not a male by gender.

You've piqued my curiosity. Why does a female make the most sense?
