Rampant discrimination is going on in the sci-fi community. I wrote up the most recent instances of this for Dangerous.com. Check it out.
The last several months have seen a flurry of discrimination by conventions. Worldcon shamefully and unprecedentedly banned me over my being a political figure, Readercon removed guests over their age, and now ECCC is giving preferential treatment to people based on sexuality, gender and race.
Their programming says it all:
You’ll immediately note what’s missing — any industry mixers for straights, whites, or males. Also none for Christians. As the industry moves more and more to excluding these groups, the conventions are celebrating their lack of inclusiveness.
When asked about it, ECC took their time and responding:
The discrimination is clear. I’ve asked if they intend on having an industry mixer for white males next year and offered to host/moderate. I doubt I’ll get a response.
If you want to help in the fight for civil rights and equality for all, including whites, males, Christians, and other marginalized groups by the publishing and comics industries, you can join in the fight. Support my Go Fund Me to help me take legal action against Worldcon for their illegal discrimination and defamation.
Otherwise, I live off of the support of folk like you checking out my books or supporting my Patreon. Even $1 a month keeps this blog and my other content going, and at $3 and above I offer exclusive content like short stories and behind the scenes looks at my book creation process.
