 There are four generally recognized genders in modern society: male, female, herm (or hermaphrodite),​ and [[androgyne]] (or neuter). Males and females remain far the most common. In the early history of recoms, androgynes were very common -- now they are less so, but there are still some around. The majority of herms are chakats, but herms also occur in other species. There are four generally recognized genders in modern society: male, female, herm (or hermaphrodite),​ and [[androgyne]] (or neuter).

-The "​classical"​ or "​true"​ hermaphrodite,​ which includes chakats, appears female in outward appearance and usually has a feminine voice. If remaining clothed, these herms can easily pass for a female. ​(But chakats, like most taurs, do not habitually wear clothing on their lower body.)+The "​classical"​ or "​true"​ hermaphrodite,​ which includes chakats, appears female in outward appearance and usually has a feminine voice.

 Due to the prevalance of mutations among recoms, it is possible for other types of herms to exist. It is possible for a recom to appear outwardly female but possess only male sex organs. The opposite is also possible, and a recom can appear outwardly male while having female sex organs. And of course, it is possible to have recoms of intermediate appearance. All of these are considered "​herms"​ from a legal or medical standpoint, but they may choose to take on decidedly male or female roles in their daily life. In some cases it may be possible to physically restructure a herm recom into a male or female using advanced medical techniques -- but this is expensive and difficult. It is considered far easier and safer to determine and correct their gender before birth -- before conception or at an early embryonic stage. Due to the prevalance of mutations among recoms, it is possible for other types of herms to exist.
