Default Re: How can Mirrim be a weyr leader?

50% of any Wyer is filled with green riders. Why is Mirrim so special? What if T'gellan was bi and his weyrmate was a male green rider? Would the male green rider be accorded special treatment like Mirrim if he was good at organizing and running the Weyr. After all more then 70% of a Weyr consists of gay and BI riders, and organizing is a gay cliché. Having introduced Mirrim's impression of Path into the story Anne set a double standard. Then again the double standard existed since the first word was written about Pern.
