Supporting LGBT Characters in F&SF

Jim C. Hines is offering a home for the stories that various authors pulled from the anthology Wicked Pretty Things after the editor made a fuss over a same-sex relationship in one story.  I appreciate people who do things like this.  I once pulled something from a magazine whose editor did something intolerant and intolerable.  No, I couldn't spare the money, but there are levels of slime that I just won't put up with.  I'm glad I didn't have anything aimed at this anthology; my characters would've gone berserk.  So, I'm boosting the signal for a thoughtful discussion of literary responsibility.
