Today’s topic comes from QSFer Victoria Stagg Elliot: “I’ve lately been fantasizing about writing a book called, “The Grammar Wars,” that focuses on two societies at war over a disagreement over the use of the Oxford comma. What are other silly reasons that could trigger an intergalactic war and make for an interesting science fiction book?”
There are enough examples in our own history of stupid incidents that have triggered conflicts, and often, when the history is finally written, the original cause has been forgotten.
So my question today – What silly reasons that could trigger an intergalactic war? And extra points if it has an LGBT angle.
Mind the plot bunnies underfoot, people.
