For some of the novel, Jess goes by "he/him" pronouns for her own safety in the world of work, and flees when one of her friends accidentally refers to her as "she" in front of her colleagues.

There are some sex scenes throughout the book. There are also scenes of rape, although these are not presented in a pleasant or sensual context.
