With thanks to [livejournal.com profile] osewalrus for the link:

Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith posted this. As Seanan McGuire said, this was a very brave post.

One should not have to be brave to do this.

The quote in the header is from Joanna Russ. And, at WorldCon, I held my tongue when a woman said that she thought Russ should have been more forgiving. She was probably of Russ's generation, and I doubt she would have been at all impressed if I had quoted The Female Man: "We would gladly have listened to her (they said) if only she had spoken like a lady. But they are liars and the truth is not in them."

Thank you for your support!

To continue to support YA fiction with LGBTQ characters and non-white characters, I have proposed creating Permanent Floating YA Diversity Book Clubs. If you wish to participate, the link will explain how to begin one, join one, or simply pass on the word. We are currently voting for the December selection.
