The most obvious piece of evidence, I think, has been overlooked: the
dramatis personae as printed in the First Folio which places Ariel
unambiguously among the females between Miranda and Iris.  If Ariel is
male, it would be the only example of such misplacement in a book that
insists on placing MM's Isabella below the dissolute prisoner Barnardine
