In Greek mythology, Hermaphroditus was the name of the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. Hermaphrodite is a term now used to describe a human being or animal where the characteristics of both sexes are combined.

Hermaphroditism was, according to theosophy, the condition of the early Third ROOT RACE and the bi-sexual condition came only at the end of the Third race period. (SD I:397)
