Re: Lots of Western names (and non-Western) are gender-neutral. Nicknames, too. Danae al'Thor Send a noteboard - 12/09/2010 11:02:36 PM
It does sound interesting, but the woman called Sir Perceval thing kind of makes it sound like she's trying too hard to subvert tropes...


Who's to say the future won't have more of them, in different contexts?

Break the shackles of heteronormative binormial gender stereoptyping, Paulie! Go forth and read this book!
