I read somewhere that Neith was technically nonbinary and was defined as "father of fathers and mother of mothers" or something to that effect. Would you mind confirming the validity of that? Thank you.
You know, I actually don’t know so I will post this in the tags and maybe someone who knows better will say.
Neith’s independence and autonomy are emphasized in her demiurgic activity. Thus it is often said that Neith is both feminine and masculine – “two thirds masculine, one third feminine,” (Esna, vol. 5, p. 110) – both mother and father, “who inaugurated birth when birth had not yet been,” (Lichtheim, vol. 3, p. 38), having “appeared from herself,” (Esna, vol. 5, p. 253).
It may not mean much, and I may be throwing a ball at a very non-existent court, but it makes a lot of sense with the general assumption being Neith is the Mother of Sobek.
Looking at how some regarded Sobek as the Creator god, and Her giving birth to Him would put her in a place “before” creation. Before any kind of physicality, autonomy and so on. So I’d like to think if She’s there before the “rules/guidelines/DiY kits” then it makes perfect sense that She’s nonbinary.
Crocodile Momma fucking with her own rules man, IDK.
