I can't make my mind up. Can you?
Why would Amber being male sicken you Scott? I think, from my memories; Amber was described as rather manly.Actually I'm thinkin' this one is best unexplained. A lot of people would be sad to find out Fool was a female whatever it is. I would be sickened at the thought of a Male Amber. Hobb really was messing w/ us though. In Tawney man Beloved was always showing up outside the room fully clothed so I really thought a female fool was where the story was going.
all descriptions point to androgony. Dunno, I've always found men in drag disturbing with the exception of Kids in the Hall and Monty Python for comic effect. But a dude putting on a dress full time to fool people I find icky. That's not to say I wouldn't defend someones right to do that. I live in San Francisco and see it every once in a while but seeing disturbing things once in a while is a small price to pay for living here. Women trying to pass as young men is slightly less disturbing. Anyway, a woman all along or a more alien sexuality was where I thought the story was going.Why would Amber being male sicken you Scott?
