* {{Expy}}: A blond-haired, beautiful RoyalBrat, spoiled rotten, cruel, coward and prone to hiding behind his relatives' power? Tormenting the weaker, hiding behind the stronger, stupid but cunning enough to present himself as desirable for naive, red-haired women of noble blood, who then refuse to see his true character? Change the setting of which sex holds the actual power, and you get [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Joffrey]].

* ActionGirl: The default. Every Whistler, including the boys, is trained to some degree in fighting. There's a mention once of "teams of little girls" loading and aiming rifles when they think someone's about to raid the house.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In the desire to turn the genders upside down, the writer is unable to take into account that women act differently on account of Estrogen, which they have in a much greater quantity then men. A healthy female that can have children will invariably have enough Estrogen to instinctively and naturally allow any male in the immediate vicinity to assume a leadership role, and react more submissively. In fact, our current teaching methods in the 21 st century, which stress cooperation over competition have been shown to create a much higher rate of female students outperforming their male peers. If there were more women, it would be very likely that they would compensate by becoming more passive and submissive, not less, and no amount of societal training can really change hormonal balances. In fact [[FridgeLogic]] one would wonder why the men were not worried that by women acting like men they would not lessen their Estrogen, and thereby menstrual cycles, making the whole point of men being used for breeding totally moot. Of course, the entire society is not established to make sense, but more or less to try to make people think about gender roles, and the writer makes no claim to understand science, so the error can be forgiven.

** Though this was slightly necessary due to the going to the capital thing putting Jerin at risk and Corelle took some responsibility for keeping him safe.
** Though Jerin's thought that "for the first time in months" he loves Corelle (for her bravery in going out to parley with armed women) implies that the hostility between them is either a recent development or intermittent.



** ActionMom: Kij Porter, a mother, a badass and a captain of her own ship. [[spoiler:And the BigBad.]]

*** It should also be noted that men here on this Earth are subjected to the things they are subjected to in the novel as well. Some religions, Islam in particular, encourage using young boys as sex slaves, even though they discourage homosexuality in most other forms.



** Which still makes no sense, because a completely untrained but in shape man could still beat up most well trained and strong women very easily. Also, men have a natural tendency towards aggressive response simply because of their Testosterone levels.



** Which is never explained, because men are aroused very easily, especially as young teens. It seems unlikely that you could "teach" a sixteen year old male to dislike touching a female.



** He probably did look better fully dressed, since clothing would have masked those imperfections.
** Also nobody is at his best after being drugged, raped, and murdered.



*** To be fair, the family in question was guilty of so many capital crimes it's not even ''funny'': [[spoiler:murder of old prince consort, murder of Queen Mothers and elder princesses, stealing crown weapons, wanton murder of country folk, murder of dozen soldiers, attempted mass murder of capital's garrison, kidnapping prince consort, attempted murder of remaining princesses, and to top it all off--an attempted coup]]
