There was a lot of push-back at the time that Wolfe would not have a
"moral exemplar" (that was the term) be married to a transsexual.
Of course, I didn't see a problem with it since I was suggesting Hy was
a male CHEM. It would be no more sexually "deviant" for Silk to marry a
retro-fitted male chem than a female chem. Neither are male or female in
the biological sense (although, I think they are in the spiritual sense).
As pointed out, Silk becomes suicidal after his second enlightening on
his wedding night. He tells Horn that "there was a taint that came from
neither Hyacinth or me, but from the act itself.
Of course, if Hy is Fava in dream-travel (plugging my newest theory),
she is therefore 100% REAL WOMAN. So the taint could not come from Hy in
that case. But the Rajan warns Hoof that, although the promiscuous
Jahlee, was a true woman sexual relations between humans and inhumi in
dream travel are nevertheless wrong.
