“If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.”
Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)\
I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said
“don’t come follow a woman of color writer
assume everything she writes
how she dresses her space
is going to make you comfortable.
isnt going to pierce your skin,
make your stomach fire.
then flood her inbox with messages of how she is hurting you.
how she is filling up your dash with love notes from people you don’t care about.
i find that wildly presumptious
