Censorship is so last century.
I had a chat with an irate teacher at a high school the other day. She’s mad because one of my queer characters in The Way Back “got his straight best friend pregnant.” She thinks this is wrong and messy for a couple of reasons, the first being that my teen characters are having sex, but also because I’m messing with her whole notion of who is supposed be having said not-okay sex with whom.
So, on the subject of censorship, let’s all move this party over to Write all the Words! where I did a guest post during Banned Books Month, and have another read. There will be fancy drinks with little paper umbrellas, and pigs in a blanket. Enjoy.
Read whatever you want. Write whatever you want. Have sex with whoever you want. It’s that simple.
