The majority of links I post are writing-related. Writing–like living, feeling, thinking–is inseparable from freedom. And this freedom is under attack.
- If you write something that doesn’t fit the narrative — you’re evil. If you happen to be a straight white male, you’re evil a priori, before you dare write anything.
However, no one is safe.
Adhere to the narrative, and you’ll be fine. Break a stereotype — you’ll be condemned. Your sexuality, race, gender won’t matter.
- Put to shame “the height of prejudice (which) is to look at somebody and think you know what they think because of the color of their skin.”
“Too many people of all persuasions act as though there are views, based on one’s perceived identity alone, that others must share. No matter what else might be said, that is an extraordinarily warped view of freedom.”
Fight for the right to write. The right to think, feel, live. Be brave.
