Eight years ago a friend of mine lost his life to cancer. He was eight-two years old and was undergoing yet another cancer treatment to attempt to remove the cancer from his tongue. He already had a very difficult time talking due to earlier surgeries removing the cancer cells from other parts of his throat and mouth. This time, when they put him under anesthesia, he did not wake up.

A friend of mine messaged me the other day almost in tears because an author they love and adore replied to their email in a contemptuous way. My friend is a fan of male/male romances which are very commonly written by straight women for straight women, and the author in question has a very feminine name and looks very feminine, and therefore, my friend made the assumption that the author in question is female. Hell, I made the assumption the author was female.
