I had thoughts on the article about the agent who asked two authors to de-gay their YA novel (a story which has now come under dispute by the agent in question; my thoughts on the resulting pushback are best summed up in this tweet by Scott Westerfeld, but I digress). It turns out that [personal profile] renay also had thoughts, and we bounced those thoughts around and off each other, and we posted the results over on [community profile] ladybusiness:

That's a really nice piece by you & renay. I hate that I'm only reading & running, but it's a crazy-busy day.

I found this a useful overview of the whole did-they-or-didn't-they-ask-the-authors-to-de-gay mess: http://www.yahighway.com/2011/09/field-trip-friday-special-edition.html

That's a good summary, yeah. Thanks for the link!

I'm disappointed, though, that the focus hadn't shifted so strongly onto the she said/she said drama, because no matter what any one agent did or did not do, this is a real issue that deserves discussion. I came across this overview today, which is even more thorough; it may, in fact, be my favorite post in this whole discussion:
