A writer claims that she is attacked for being straight


S.E. Hinton, writes books for the young audience. And she is often criticised for her books because they do not represent diversity and there are no LGBT characters. In Twitter the 68-year-old novelist assumes that she is a heterosexual writer writing about heterosexual characters and being attacked because of being straight. And this is a thing she is not going to apologize for. Users reacted angrily to the post, saying she is dismissing the inclusion of LGBT characters altogether. It comes after a series of major media organisations said that LGBT characters are under-represented in the media. Ms Hinton has responded to the row with a series of posts defending her stance.She continues to claim she’s being attacked due to heterosexuality. But there are gay writers who have straight characters in their books and there also can be an opposite situation.
