Animals: Bear (Flowers)

Success!

Well I finally sent back my edits on my zine story, so that is one thing to feel less stressed about. I feel more than a tad guilty as I've had them for longer than it usually takes me to return them - blame Christmas and my mother's new computer :-) As this is an editor with whom I have previously not worked, I don't want her to think this is my usual speed. Still at least they are done, that's the main thing.

Coming out. What would their superiors think?

I was working though my edits for a zine story recently and something the editor said together with something I read in someone’s LJ, plus a story I was reading recently made me think about the above - would the couple in question tell their bosses when they became lovers?

Now I will own up and say that maybe my view is a tad sentimental and is more wishful thinking than reality, and maybe I am just projecting too many of my twenty-first century, non-bigoted views on to people in the 1960s, 1970/80s and 1990s. However, as none of us actually know what would truly happen in any of the organisations/universes, I believe that my view is as valid as anyone else’s. I have full respect for the views of others so what I am saying is just my opinion and is in no way meant to offend any other person’s opinion.
