In this connection and before proceeding to discuss the psychology of the subject, it is curious to observe that the notion of an original hermaphroditism, or bisexuality, in the human species is of historical as well as physiological antiquity. In the book of Genesis we are told that God created man in His own image, male and female created He himónot them, as translated, since the creation of the woman, from the body of the man, was a quite subsequent actóbidding him, long before the creation of the woman,to be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth.1 These commands are all contained in the first chapter of the book; and it was not until the second chapter that the Lord, finding "it was not good for man to be alone," made him a helpmeet, woman, in the manner described.
