FOR WRITERS: Stealth Eugenics



Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Cyd Athens:

This topic, which I believe would be a writer discussion, is inspired by something Else Sjunneson-Henry wrote on her Twitter feed.

Her core contention:

“If you’re writing far future, or even near future SF and you don’t have disabled people in it, then you’re participating in eugenicist thought processes.”

There are other ways to frame this too. I’ll try to tackle it from a more positive angle – Should we rethink our future stories, specifically in terms of who we might be leaving out, and what it might signify?
