    Before even delving into the concept behind Chalice, the initial reason I have for being cautious is that this is a character, though created by well-meaning allies, that did not have a trans creator involved.

    …and my brother’s Honor Harrington is a woman created by a single male author, and Lois Bulold’s Miles Vorkosigan and Bel Thorne are a straight male and a (bisexual? omni sexual? gender-fluid?) hermaphrodite created by a cis woman.

    Your point?

    A Story: In the early days of brother Dave’s career with Baen books, they received a diatribe from an ardent feminist who blasted them for forcing them to force a woman to use a male pseudonym because of the belief that women don’t buy SF (at least space opera), because no mere male could possibly create such a strong and resonant and believable female character as Alicia deVries (or maybe this was a couple books later and it was Honor Harrington, but i’m pretty sure it was Captain deVries…)
