Given her behaviors, I'd say the burden of proof is on those who would claim that Zoa isn't a person.

This future is not so nice.


Where did TS state that she's not a person? Did he state this as his view, or as the view of this dystopian society we're getting a look at?
Likes his women like he likes his coffee... a little sweet, a little spicy, a little strong, a little earthy, a little smokey, totally honest, and maybe a little offended by being compared to a beverage.

Dunno about everyone else, but to me, his choice of referring to Zoa as It instead of They or She is what told me that he considers them to not be a person.

That's not unreasonable, but I'm also trying to be fair to TS and make sure I'm not jumping to conclusions.

That is also reasonable. As far as I've noticed, he has not stated outright whether he considers Zoa to be a person or not, just that in universe they are not considered one.
