So, quite a big topic but I gather not a lot of literature on this from the AEs!
I know it’s not likely they had a concept like LGBTQ+ because it seems to be very much a modern movement.
However, I am impressed with how modern some of their attitudes were, such as women having more rights in AE than anywhere else in the ancient world (that I know of).
I gather like a lot of other societies, having male and female couple relationships were important and attached to populating the Earth. However, I wonder what the attitudes would have been towards other forms of relationships or genders?
Myself and my wife have children together and family life is very important to us. Other forms of relationships can still include/produce children, so another question is how the AEs may have viewed different types of families. I know there may not be literature on this.
Then again, perhaps the AEs didn’t care and let people get on with it! Perhaps it wasn’t a particularly big deal to them as long as the principles of Ma’at is upheld?
