Răzleț (as in gând răzleț) is a Romanian word and also an adjective, mostly describing an oak. You know how an oak will sometimes live happily on a hill, all by itself, a few miles away from the forest ? That'd be it. Not exactly a straggler, not quite prodigal, not lost nor missed nor away, just simply... aside. Apart. Razlet.
So : it's a fact that dogs are pretty well varied in size, from a pound's worth of three inches tall dog to a metric ton's worth of nine feet tall beast. Well, give or take.i It is also a fact that most of these are equally so dogs, and in general speaking they are sexually compatible. Which means that the tiny Pekingese could in fact impregnate a hefty Saint Bernard, if you held him up to her or something (preferably exercising due caution to not accidentally drop the poor thing in that sucking void).
Wouldn't it be kind-of interesting if this were the case with humans, too ? Think about it, a couple walking down the street, three feet tall if she stood on his shoulders. Right next to them, a nine foot tall couple easily stepping over them, hopefully without mishap. A little further down the road, a seven foot tall gentleman in a tophat and pince-nez carrying his ruffly skirted, garter belted two foot tall belle on his shoulder like she were a parrot and he a pirate.
Imagine all the fun industrial designers would have trying to make shoes, and busses, and dildoes for all this varied multitude. Imagine how badass the belle on the shoulder would look brandishing a kitchen knife obviously designed for Paul Bunyan. Just imagine the possibilities!
I, for one, welcome the perspective of future diversity in the species. This entire some are faggots, some are really women trapped in male bodies, some are really dragons trapped in whatever is barely scratching the surface. Give me real variety, I say, of the variete variety.
