Nicole Akers has admitted through an intermediary (Yesterday, in a Facebook group called Medium Dreamers, via Darcy Reeder) that she has rejected LGBTQ writers in advance, based on their writing in other publications. She admits to combing through writers’ work in other publications to screen their views before she’ll consider anything they may write specifically for her. By very many reports, she then rejects LGBTQ writers if, in her own words, she disagrees with their ‘social stance.’
This is horseshit on a magnitude of which I have never seen. She is using this statement as a means to justify discrimination toward very specific people. I know for an absolute FACT that she has turned a completely blind eye to others who have written about topics, frequently, that in no way, shape or form have a “social stance” that would be embraced by a Christian reader base. Yet, they are published again and again and again.
To say she has rejected writers because she has combed through their writing and they are not a “fit” is crap.
