I thought Alice Wonder would give away that it is a handle and not a real name and therefore not a gender indicator, but for some people - despite Alice Cooper - it is a gender identifier. It's okay, I don't mind, English doesn't really have a gender neutral pronoun and so some authors have started using she instead of he when neutral is intended just to make a point. My actual name is Michael, which while typically male. I have for the record seen used with both genders despite the name Michelle existing. So I guess by choosing Alice I am kind of bringing it on myself.
