That’s why I started writing my own brand of spec fiction 20 years ago.
But I’m not as well-known as Butler or Peele or others because I’m even more marginalized and invisible as an impoverished, aromantic, intersex, genderqueer, pansexual, Aspie, survivor, disabled — and more — Black afab.
No one even knows people like me exist yet everyone takes liberties with all aspects of my being and distorts it in sick, twisted ways. Maybe I’ll finally see Lilith on the screen, the only story that offers a possibility model for invisible outcasts like me.
I’m tired of people writing ignorant shit about people like me as if my life doesn’t depend on it.
It’s also interesting that Black entertainment is actually finally kind of receiving recognition under a fucking tyrant. Why did it have to get this bad for folks to listen to us? Sigh.
