So right off the bat, I really REALLY hope this post doesn't generate any fights. I'm only looking for some info regarding femmes in the IDW world, because I'm confused about several things. So this isn't about whether you think femmes should be included or not, a discussion about what gender is or isn't, whether someone secretly or not so secretly hates women (I have seen some shit, man..). This is just a question regarding TF history and femmes. Ok. According to what I think I have been able to put together, here is my question. Were there femmes on Cybertron originally? We know that one of the Primes was Solarus. She is a she. Version One: Yes. In the alternate universe, we see what is described as a Lunabot who throws her flaming cog at someone. So it seems there were femmes on Cybertron at one time. You remember who I'm talking about, she looks like a female Rung (I am crap at posting images. sorry). Rewind and Minimus are watching her on TV and clearly call her "she", so the idea of "she" isn't crazy hard for them to grasp. If this is true, then ALL the femmes who were on Cybertron originally packed up and left? None remained behind? I find it hard to think that there weren't extremely close friends who would have voted to stay on Cybertron, maybe even Conjunx who wouldn't leave their loves. When the war broke out, surely some would vote to remain behind and fight? Version Two: No. Colonists left with Titans to start anew. The femmes somehow formed out there via the sparks they were carrying (and maybe created in new hotspots). The crew of the LL were confused when they met Nautica, Windblade and Chromia for the first time. Arcee, when she sees the trio, remarks something along the lines of "This I can't wait to hear." The Alternate Rewind had a little trouble with Nautica first time he saw her, (Skids replies, "That's Nautica, and she's a she.") Which leads me to think there were no femmes on Cybertron originally. I'm just confused, as there seems to be two differing versions within the same IDW universe as to Femmes. I'm wondering if there has been a final version that explains it all? Am I the only one who's not working out what's going on, or is anyone else confused?
