THEORIES ABOUT THE UNIVERSE
I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
have this, because chocolate makes dogs
very sick. My dog does not understand this.
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
universe has my best interest in mind like I have
my dogs. When I want something with my whole
being, and the universe withholds it from me,
I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl.
She thinks this is what she wants, but she
does not understand how it will hurt.
Why is Everyone Straight?: A Comprehensive Guide to Diversifying Sexual Identification and Romantic Expression in Your Writing
I have been thinking about writing this article for a long time. As a queer writer and reader, I see people fretting about this often, but I haven’t found a quick one stop shop post/article that addresses how to approach the inclusion of LGBTQAI+ characters from the perspective of someone from outside the community. So, like my article about writing POC, I’m going to do my best with this subject as well. I hope it helps everyone. And if you see anything here that you would like to contest or anything that you want to add, feel free to contact me about it so I can discuss it with you and hopefully change/edit the masterpost for the better. Also, my apologies for being so general. I’ve tried to link to sources that specify certain things I’ve said. So, Please Please Please click the links.
Also, I’m working on purging cissexism from my language, but I fuck up sometimes, so if you see it let me know and I’ll fix it.
Whether you like it or not, everyone is not straight. Everyone is not a boy or a girl. And everyone is not sexual. Though that may be upsetting or confusing to hear at first—like learning the earth is round and that carrots used to be purple—this is an inescapable fact that cannot be out shouted, run away from, or cried out of existence.
As writers, we have a duty to consider how the spectrum of humanity appears in our writing. A part of that includes taking a long look at how people relate to each other, what kind of people exist and how common they are.
And I am going to say this: Everyone on earth has met and/or intimately knows someone on the LGBTQAI+ spectrum. Whether they know it or not. This is not a guestimation or hubris, it’s likelihood and probability, numbers with both global culturalization and historical support.
So for people who are looking to include more LGBTQAI+ characters in their books, Bravo! Here is where to start. I’m going to break this down into “what, “how” and “why” so you can approach writing LGBTQAI+ characters with confidence. Representation is important and we need all the inclusion we can get if we are going to change the fabric of our media for the better.
LGBTQAI+ or GRSM (personally I like GRSM): Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minority(s).
In general, for writing purposes all of this stuff can be broken down into three categories:
- Sexual Identity
- Romantic Expression…
