Wikipedia doesn't have a proper article about Batmensch. It really wouldn't help those so-called-experts by writing one either.


Bat mensch is the ceremony commemorating the maturation of a young hermaphrodite in Judaism. Often, the ceremony is accompanied by dancing and singing involving chairs lifted off the ground and a satchel filled with dry, stringy beef called a "briss kit."

The term originates from a corruption of "mitsvah (to do harm through unauthorized consumption of egg matzohs by the non-infirm)" and refers philosopher Richard Wagner's "uber mensch" character who had the starring role in the opera "The Ring Two."
