Is there any history to the coinage, ‘UTERINE SIBLINGS’ ?
No, not that I have ever heard or read of. I am going to reconstruct the history of UTERINE SIBLINGS.
In a particular society near the present day Virudhunagar, was a community where men happily followed polygyny and women acquiesced to their lot. Their eyes had not yet been opened to perceive that to DEMAND PHYSICAL FIDELITY FROM A MAN WAS NEITHER AN IDEA, in fact if a woman could command the undivided physical interest only in one man, then that woman would be worshiped upon her death, nor a practice. Therefore, it was a posthumous honour that no living woman prioritized nor desired such a far vision. Whatever the hardship, darkness had to come and sleep would envelop her day’s grievances.
In this background, women had to distinguish their own children without offending the sensitivity of man that any of his women would ever dare to distinguish any of his children, as others’ and mine! They were all HIS, that’s ALL what mattered!
In this scenario, women devised to INCLUDE men in the identification of the parentage of their children, they called it SIBLINGS. From Children they became siblings, indicating the same parentage. They did not want to say that the children were born to both the parents or only one of the parents had been biologically associated. They brought the men in this word SIBLINGS, all knew that a woman was absolutely necessary for a birth, whereas there NEED NOT BE ANY CERTAINTY of the participation of a MAN. Anyone could have been the biological male parent. The society had no business to involve, support or be seen as supporting the determinability of determining the male parent.
Then the WOMEN who had one man exclusively devoted to her through out his life was to be honoured and then WOMEN started recognizing the other children born to their male biological partner. That coinage has been the beginning of a WOMAN respecting the Co-children she had with him. Thereby POLYGYNY was in vogue in that village, the name i shall not name now, as that would make the story more PREDETERMINED. It has to evolve, but don’t think I do not know it – remember it is my creation, and when i will create is my privilege and I shall never ever abdicate that privilege! Whatever has happened out of nothing is CREATION and whatever would become out of nothing is also CREATION!
