TYT Discusses Gay Authors


Recommended Posts

Methinks the Turks are missing the point. Right or wrong, I'd guess the publishing house wanted the characters changed to straight not because of social bigotry, but to sell more books. They think they'll find a larger audience for the book if the protagonists are straight.

It seems odd that that point was never brought up in the video.

I agree that the publishing house made its decision on the basis that they want to

sell more books. In fact, I believe that is their only decision driver. The underlying

issue here is that publishing executives appear to have made the assumption that

only straight characters in fiction will sell the most books. I think that's bullshit,

and I think sales records will bear me out on this.
