Take the SJW reader challenge today!

DumAss

Over at XOJane, K.T. Bradford is challenging readers to avoid cis het white male authors for a year for some reason. Larry Correia seemed to think this was entirely unreasonable and it struck him as patently stupid. Perhaps he is right, but perhaps K.T. Bradford has a point and perhaps we should try to broaden reading horizons by consciously choosing to pick up books by authors who aren’t part of the oppressive “cis het white male” majority.

So in the spirit of taking this challenge seriously, I will be making an effort to avoid such writers and see what it does for my outlook. So I guess I should make a list of authors that are “acceptable” to read because they aren’t “cis white het males” to make it easier for anybody that wants to join me.

So lets see what is in?
