internalized-homophobia

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Richard Wood:

Could western society return to persecution and declaring illegal sexual activities of sexual minorities? If so how and why?

It’s an interesting question. We all take it as an article of faith that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” But looking at some of the recent political developments around the world, you sometimes have to wonder.

Has anyone written sci fi where things get bad again? How could it happen? And what kinds of stories could we tell around this premise?
