"Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people."
Hahaha, remember back when I worked at Kroger’s, that one time when I causally mentioned that I had a girlfriend, and next thing I knew I was in the office being reprimanded for “talking about my sex life”?
The simple act of saying that you aren’t straight is considered to be a sexual conversation.
