There has been no recent fluff that outright states that Spess Mahreens fuck. and using old fluff can be a bit strenuous because that opens up the path for Half Eldar Librarian Ultramarines. The closest there is is the Wolves codex entry for Lukas- which implies his bedding of women came before he was a Space Marine and a few vague references in one or two books about Wolves maybe flirting with women. However, that does not mean that they have a working dick- plenty of men who have been rendered unable to get it up in the real world still flirt with women and enjoy their company.

Likewise, there is very little evidence to suggest that Marines do get their dicks cut off/ rendered useless and that which is there could very much just be a chapter/legion thing.

I'd say it's really up to the reader what they wish to take from the evidence.

They existed, but their evolution was shaped by an outside force.

Also, before anyone goes tossing up screenshots of Xenology, remember that the subjects of those autopsies were stuck in cells on a starvation diet for years before the (mildly insane) AdBio guy cut them up.

Also, by that same book I may be wrong. The Tau were made (altered, if you prefer) by a species described (in translation from a history of a horrid spider/wasp type species) as "taller and thinner than humans"... This was assumed to mean Eldar by an inquisitor who had no exposure to DE or Necrons, and the translation was handled by a Necron masquerading as a human to begin with.

On a related note, why is the Sisters wearing an Inquisitorial Rosette and not her Chaplet Ecclesiasticus? Sisters DO NOT wear the Inquisitorial Rosette unless specifically required. Sisters have no want or reason to have it, certainly would not be caught dead wearing it unless absolutely necessary and the Inquisition would NEVER allow her to wear it unless it was again, necessary.

By what claim? Average woman is around 5' 5", so unless she's wearing ridiculous heels (yes, that one piece of art has it, but I mean in general).

Because he's not. For one, she's up to his chest, and you'll note that her left leg is bent, so her right one could be lower than where he's standing. If you'd note this picture here, you'll note the scale is actually pretty accurate.

>unless specifically required

Man, you bitch a long time when you yourself answered the question there. She's obviously on an Inquisitorial mission, why else would she even be with the Grey Knights? Clearly they're purging a heretical faction with daemonic dealings. It's not unheard for Inquisitorial forces joining for a common cause.

To me it had that "maiden giving a knight a flower as he marches to war" type of look to it. Marines aren't really known for botany and sentimentality, so the only reason he'd be giving the rose to her would be if he thought it was heretical and needed to be purged with her flamer.

This. The way I see it, the marines simply just don't have time pursue romantic relationships.

They're thinly spread and always in demand across the galaxy, they need to spend their time drilling & training, mentally preparing etc. before being shipped off to the latest combat zone. Rinse and repeat after that.

Throw in the fact that any time they're not in combat they're locked up in their fortress monasteries surrounded by just other dudes.

Even if they met a buxom Sororitas on the battlefield, I'd say they'd be concentrating all their efforts on the fighting/tactics.

TL;DR I think that given free time and no combat to think about, a marine could indeed make sexytimes with a woman. I just don't think that they have the opportunity, and even if they did with all the psychoengineering stuff, they probably just don't think that way.

To be fair, the steralisation thing's only been mentioned twice. The first time, it's implied in the (non-canon) Tau ending of Dark Crusade. The second, in the section describing the Tau in Deathwatch. I've not read the Deathwatch book, just seen bits and peices, so can't comment as to whether this is written from a third-person, word-of-god perspective, or whether there might be a degree of unreliable narration.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Tau sometimes use methods like mass steralisation to control an unwilling or unruly populace that's been co-opted into the Greater Good, but stop short of doing it routinely.

It's true though. In the DC Tau ending (which was non-canon even for DoW, though it does show the Tau's plans for Kronus) the sterilization is only put forward by the narrator, an Imperial scribe*, as a possible explanation for the drop in human birthrates, alongside the single-gender reeducation camps.

* His name is never mentioned in-game, but in the game's UCS file all the stronghold narrations and movies and such have the sub-heading 'From “Dark Crusade: A Relation of the Second Kronus War” by Scriba Marcus Orestes'.

I assume, for similar reasons as to why the Combine steralised Earth's population during Half Life 2. To break people's spirits and make them easier to control. You can work the existing population to death getting things ready, then move your own people in when they've died off.

Sex is a selfish surrender to base emotions and has nothing to do with the Greater Good. When you have sex, you do it with socks on, saluting the whole time and thinking of nothing but your duty to the state and the Greater Good. Crying is allowed.

Then why are the Tau discouraging the Kroot from eating people?

I don't think it's actively discouraging them so much as just hoping "that prolonged exposure to the Tau’s sensibilities and culture will eventually purge them of this distasteful habit". Presumably much laughter about the matter is had on the Kroot side.

Mass sterilization makes perfect sense if you think like the tau. Especially when dealing with humans. Think about it, the Tau conquer a colony world with a population of humans. You can probably convert most of them and get them working for you but you are always going to have radicals. Worse, your normal human lifespan is 75 to 80 and with augmentations that skyrockets to 200 and then some. So you got these violent savages that live twice as long as you and worse, are pumping out babies all the time. What do you do without resorting to mass execution and inciting a rebellion?

You subtly neuter them with mass sterilization till the point that their population is at a level easily controlled. From then on you just need to sterilize the known troublemakers while letting enough breed to keep a stable work force. Eventually you get a slave race in all but name. Truly, the "Greater good" at work.

Even though the Tau view the savage ways of their Kroot friends disturbing, they did not work to stop them or change their ways.

The Tau hope that the exposure to the civilized ways of T'au will someday compel the Kroot to abandon their wayward ways.

The very assertion that the noble Tau would use such methods is offensive.

Notice how the all claims of sterilization come from the Imperials only. Indeed, a truly trustworthy source of Information.

In truth like all claims of Tau malice, it is a projection by the Imperium. The Imperials love to project their own faults upon the Tau for they can not fathom that there is a thriving force in the galaxy that does not lower itself by committing the same brutal acts they employ.

The benevolence of the Tau is the bane of the hateful Imperium, and thus the Imperials will always try (and fail) to cover it up with lies and falsehoods.

Look I have no problem if the Tau started to sterilize Genestealer infected populations or chaos corrupted ones until a cure is found.

What I have a problem with is the claim that the Tau sterilize entire population for malicious reasons.

I have reviewed this. None of this disapproves the benevolence of the Tau.

The only piece of note was the one claiming that the Tau are on some kind of warpath. Which is absurd.

There are no mention of any alien race being forced against their will into the the Empire (Expect humans but it is justified). Kroots, Vespids, Nicassar, and many more joined the Empire on their own accord. They are more as allies than as subjects to the Tau.

Also there are empires and nations neighboring the Tau Empire who are not affiliated with it. If the Tau are really on a warpath of subjection, why haven't they taken hostile action against them? Why have they established trade and cultural bonds with them instead?

This leads me to think that this text is another Imperial propaganda vomited by the Imperial hate machine.

The Ethereal Caste who guide the actions of the Tau are wise enough to recognize the folly of such actions. If the Tau commit these unspeakable acts and rationalize them later, how are they any better than the Imperium?

It has always been a goal of the Tau Empire to win over the galaxy by taking the moral high ground. How would they do that if they started to tread the same path as the accursed Imperium?

Oh please, the Kroot are gathering intel or anything of the sort. Like all mercs they are doing it for monetary reasons and thrill of adventure.
