Hi all. First, let me apologize in advance for my english, it is not a native language.
I was wondering : can you change your biological gender in order to procreate with Muto Corpus magic ?
I know Muto magic cannot stay forever and thing tend to revert to their essential nature. But, during the time of the Muto effect, the essential nature is, in practice, changed and thing affected by the mutated effect dont revert to original (If you muto some ice in fire, thing incinerated dont come back when the fire became ice again).
Since I am not expert on sexual dymorphism in platonician/aristoteian paradigm, I was wondering if a fertile maga could turn herself into a man to impregnate a woman. A soon as the impregnation is made, the man can revert to woman, but the baby is "in progress".
(For inheritance question, my maga need a baby but cannot stand to lose time making it...all of this is SO mundane, you know ?).
I dont see why you could not, but gender identity seems quite fixed in some old paradigm, (changing gender at sunrise/sunset is a tainted virtue from RoP:I), even if other seems fine with it (faeries can make babies with anyone...Zeus was even fine turning into horse or rain to make babies ).
Any thought ?
(PS : I know the issue can be quite sensitive in our days too, I dont want to start a political ruckus here, please stay on the "medieval paradigm" )
