Are Unicorns Boys Or Girls?
Another great question! Because no scientist has ever had the chance to study unicorns up close, no one can say for sure if unicorns are boys or girls or if they even have a gender…at least a human gender. Most common beliefs state that all unicorns are male. However, these beliefs have no real foundation. Moreover, unicorns are usually associated with grace, purity, and innocence, all virtues of fair maidens and fairies. Due to their feminine allure and hypnotic beauty, it’s a lot easier to believe that unicorns are females instead of males.
Nevertheless, there isn’t any way we can tell for sure if unicorns are boys or girls. We know they are magical and magic doesn’t exactly work based on the same principles as human life. There are some theories that seem to have found a way to tell if a unicorn is a male or female. So, while a male unicorn horn spirals clockwise, a female unicorn horn spirals counterclockwise. Also, it is said that male unicorns have a goatee.
Now, if you believe that unicorns have evolved just like all the other animals on Earth, the chances are there are both male and female unicorns because this is the only way they can make baby unicorns. However, if you believe unicorns are the creation of magical forces, it’s pretty obvious that unicorns have no gender and are free spirits living in your fairy tale world!
