Star Wars Author Posts Epic Take Down Of Homophobes Upset Over New Major Gay Character

star-wars-3Sorry, you squawking saurian – meteor’s coming. And it’s a fabulously gay Nyan Cat meteor with a rainbow trailing behind it and your mode of thought will be extinct. You’re not the Rebel Alliance. You’re not the good guys. You’re the fucking Empire, man. You’re the shitty, oppressive, totalitarian Empire. If you can imagine a world where Luke Skywalker would be irritated that there were gay people around him, you completely missed the point of Star Wars. Stop being the Empire. Join the Rebel Alliance. We have love and inclusion and great music and cute droids.”


— Chuck Wending, author of the new novel Star Wars: Aftermath, in a blog post responding to complaints by homophobic readers that he added a major gay character to the series, one even accusing him of “jumping on the Caitlyn Jenner bandwagon”
