The Orion's Arm Universe Project Forums

Greetings, and a few questions
Hello world,

So I've been browsing Encyclopedia Galactica for what feels like decades, and wasn't sure where to ask this question. I really appreciate some of the terminology used by writers in the Orion's Arm project, specifically in relation to gender and intersex conditions.

Referring to humans as "Hu" is an elegant solution that completely takes the gendered suffix "Man" out of the equation.
When it comes to gonads, (Bear with me here) it makes far more sense to classify an individual organism as merm, herm etc. for the purposes of procreation.

Did the Orion's Arm writers come up with these concepts? Is it okay to refer to Homo Sapiens in my short stories as Hu?

Thanks in advance
