The rejection letter

Dear Writer,

I’m afraid we have decided to reject your manuscript because it doesn’t feature a strong female protagonist. The narrative was good until Sasha forgave the men who catcalled her. It then spiralled into some psychobabble about redemption and beauty. We are looking for a gruesome story about revenge. You must remember that the year is 2033 and stories about finding ‘salvation’ are unwanted and need purging from the literary canon.

We also found your plot about the throuple stale since it featured two women and a man in a relationship. You must remember that the We Three Movement went viral two months ago with plenty of women complaining about the disadvantages of being in a throuple with another woman and a man. The man gets attention he doesn’t deserve in these relationships. We would have preferred a dominatrix with two submissive male partners.

Finally, your non-binary, post-gender, queer character Albert is a stereotype. The very name Albert makes him a sleazy, suit-wearing, moustached, closeted gay man from the eighties. His sex scenes are full of anal penetration with no ear-play or coprophilia. This only shows us that you’re nothing but a straight, vanilla man living in a world that has long surpassed you.
