* Something similar happens in ''The Shelters of Stone'', the fifth novel of the sprawling ''Literature/EarthsChildren'' series. The main character, who has just arrived at the titular shelters with her fiancé, is given "appropriate" festival garb by the local AlphaBitch. It turns out to be underwear in a masculine style, garnished with the ceremonial sash a teenaged boy wears to announce that he's ready for sexual initiation. Even though she's [[spoiler:pregnant.]]
