Every year I go to the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, which welcomes people who openly support a belief system that gave us gulags, the Cultural Revolution, and a heroic effort to wipe out everyone with the privilege of literacy, all in a space of less than a century. And I’m in favor of that because First Amendment.

But that’s easy for me to say, because I know they’re not going to be able to enforce their ideas on me. Women, POC, and queers often don’t have that comfort in dealing with those who want to suppress them.
