...and I'm already making enemies. The Education Officer has invited a "diversity discussion and panel" to talk to our writer's group and that has me alarmed. You see, I've included all sorts of diversity in my science fiction book series, a mixed bag of characters which include people of all races, species, sexual orientations, sexual identities, and what not. Foolish me, I thought that was a good thing. Apparently not. When "white, straight, cis males" write anyone who isn't white, straight, cis and male, apparently we need special pointers from self-appointed guidance counselors so that we can avoid "offending" people. Today, I made a big stink about it on the group's Facebook page, telling the group I'm not going to submit my work for approval by censors. The Vice-President of the group told me to "give it a rest" and the Education Officer tried to shut down the debate as "destructive." So I know they're both against me, because they're trying to censor the discussion. Tell me what you think. Is this a fight worth fighting? I think it is.
