I’ve been offline for a couple of days due to a back problem, and spending any length of time at the computer is painful, but I did want to add my voice.  I’m saddened and horrified that a chapter of the Romance Writers of America, specifically the RWI chapter in Oklahoma is no longer allowing GLBT entries in their contest, due to the members being “uncomfortable” with GLBT entries.  Now, there have already been many, many blog posts already on the subject which articulate eloquently and reasonably (and more so than I believe I could) the problem with this pronouncement.   I encourage you to read these blogs and make yourselves heard.
