I was browsing the internet and stumbled upon this guest post on a blog i'm following(well now anyways)

It's written by one of our lovely members, Dennis R.Upkins

It's an amazing post and just wanted to share it.

Heather Heffner | 64 comments Very insightful and well-put, Dennis! Thanks for sharing this, Libertad. I really liked this part:

"If the teen character in Hollowstone who became pregnant was any ethnicity other than white, then the issue wouldn’t be about teen pregnancy and the obstacles young women contend with. It would instead be about how women of color are too promiscuous due to lack of proper upbringing.

If the jocks in Hollowstone engaging in homophobia were black instead of white, the issue wouldn’t be about the harm homophobia can inflict on young people, it would instead be about how black people are innately more homophobic than any other race."


Dennis R. (dennis_upkins) | 7 comments Thank you all for the warm and loving comments. They truly mean a lot.

As a writer, the greatest reward for me (aside from ridiculous sums of cash) is having my writing, be it a guest post or a novel, or a blog update, affect people positively.
