Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie

I'm reading too slowly. ::hangs head in shame::

 

I think this is the first reference to Anaander being male. I remember a review or post in which it was said that Seivarden and Anaander were both confirmed as male, and I started wondering whether "confirmed" was too strong a word. What does it even mean? In theory, if gender is signified in different ways in different non-Radchaai cultures, a fully-dressed Seivarden and Anaander should be considered male by some people and female by others, right?

 

ETA: Ugh, I hate that when you review something, BookLikes decides that any future post you write about it is probably a review too. I keep forgetting to uncheck that box.
