Link of the Day: Liz Bourke on (Male) Rape in Epic Fantasy

Leave a comment

I’ve got nothing to say about Liz Bourke’s recent post on the topic in the title — at least, not right now (maybe later).  However, I do think she’s raising a damned important question:  why aren’t more male writers dealing with the sexual abuse/rape of male characters in epic fantasies (especially when the sexual abuse/rape of female characters is somewhat common)?

Head on over and read what she’s got to say.  That is all.
