hope code -- gloss
A gloss on the whole code:
If gender and birthplace are not the desired ones, the code sets a number of imagined bodies (e.g., serpent).In many ways, this codework encodes micha's own transformation, first into living as a dragon for a year online and then into her current body as a woman.
If also traditional binaries are rejected, the code raises a warning flag and sets a lifeline.
Alternately, it sends the user out of western logic, nullifying their old and new name.
