Berdache

So, today in my family persectives class we learned about Berdache. A berdache is a man in Native American Culture who takes on the role usually designated for women. He was considered highly spiritual, and was respected and even valued in society due to this spiritual greatness. Maybe people should back off a bit on transgender/transexual people maybe?

    Just a little thing, Berdache is a kind of offensive term that’s fallen out of use, since it comes from the greek term...
