THEY: A Biblical Tale of Secret Genders, by Janet Mason

THEY is a groundbreaking work that will prove to be lifesaving for those in the LGBT community and enlightening and liberating to others. 

In this novel we met Tamar from the Hebrew Bible.  Tamar lives as a hermit in the desert, is content with her life and is happily barren. She is attached to her pet camel. Her aversion to goat sacrifices becomes so strong that it prompts her to become a vegetarian.  Tamar has a twin sister Tabitha who becomes pregnant after seducing a young muscular shepherd. Tamar plots with Tabitha to trick Judah (a patriarch from the Bible) into believing that the baby is his so that she can have status in society rather than being burnt at the stake. Tabitha gives birth to twins.  Tamar becomes attached to the children (born intersex), who call her auntie, and follows their line of intersex twins.
