Priscilla, Queen of the Jungle
Daniel McCluskey theorises (v6 #87):

Much as I reckon this new "politically correct" Nandan stuff brings little
more than retconned naffness to Sartar, Dan's proposition that Jungle Trolls
are all male is way cool and brims with MGF potential. Moreover, it
resonates with the existing mythology, so long as we take James Frusetta's
advice that the authors of Troll Gods must have been taken in by the common
trollish assumption of calling he gods she.

Maybe their "priestesses" are required to drag up for the occasion?
Outsiders would probably find it hard to tell the difference!
