Dean wakes up with a warmth in his chest and a different warmth pressed to his side and wrapped around him.
So Harry Potter is a flaw? Seriously, I have nothing against LGBTQIAP+ characters. But if you were writing Harry Potter, a book that was also for children, you might not want to put that detail in. Because at the time parents are all like ‘no I want my children to be straight blah blah blah I will never anything influence them otherwise…” I live in Asia and this is the majority of parents… When I write, I think about this. I think about adding all types of characters. At the end I just exclude the character’s sexual preferences or race. This isn’t because I want more people to accept the story, it is because these traits shouldn’t define us. Now if you don’t mind, I think we should stop this and write our own books..
Yes, Harry Potter is flawed.
And it is DEEPLY homophobic to say that media aimed for children shouldn’t have LGBTQIAP+ characters in it.
The idea that an author should continue to perpetuate the marginalization and under-representation of LGBTQIAP+ children because of bigoted adults is deeply unethical.
