she just kept going

did mulder and scully ever even solve a single case. they must’ve had the worst record in the Bureau. every case report was just “mulder thinks it’s aliens, the evidence is inconclusive and we have no proof.” how did they not get fired.
A married lesbian couple in Michigan suffered from a horrific series of hate crimes recently, and the description is cringeworthy.
Thieves broke into the lesbian couple’s home in Kalamazoo, Michigan, stole items, destroyed their wedding photos and wrote anti-gay slurs on the walls.
Included in the messages written in graffiti on the walls were “move or die,” and other messages.
This couple was obviously targeted because they’re gay. However, the police can’t pursue this as a hate crime because Michigan law doesn’t protect against hate crimes based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
This terrifies and infuriates me all at once. My heart goes out to these poor women.
As I said last night on twitter: To everyone who thinks it’s bizarre or shocking or scary to write lesbians into fantasy novels: do it anyway. It is awesome is what it is.
To clarify because this is tumblr and now I have more than 140 characters, what I mean is every so often I see someone blogging or tumblring or tweeting about how difficult they find the concept of writing about lesbians is, especially in speculative fiction. And by difficult I mean they really want to — maybe they’re lesbians themselves — but they’ve been conditioned by the mainstream to believe that (1) lesbians don’t exist in fantasy so if you put them in there it will be “bizarre”; (2) putting lesbians in fantasy will shock mainstream readers and thus the story/novel won’t sell so it’s not worth the time to write it*; (3) writing lesbians is scary because there are so few of them in SFF what if you get it wrong/it’s frightening to write something you desperately want to see/myriad other writerly fears based on marginalization.
So that explanation went on longer than I anticipated. There are lots of fears. They can stop you. But I hope you’ll push through them to the other side, which is full of awesome lesbians in fantasy! (And every other genre, I might add.)
* This was my biggest fear before I wrote Ash.
Gods love their stupid jokes, don’t they?
