Bill Orton is a writer, living in southern California. He spent 25 years working for politicians and organized labor, but, after a stroke, he became the luckiest soul in America, as now his only job title is "obscure novelist."
What is "post gender" fiction?
The author is not the only writer who sees characters as being defined by things OTHER then their body, but these may be the first novels to use the phrase, "post gender." Lori Lewis is an athlete and soldier. Courage and determination are not defined by gender. December Carrera falls in love with Lori, and the two face the ordinary challenges that every couple faces. Love and beauty are not determined by gender. Sadly, the "post gender" genre seems mostly an act of fiction, as people wrongly see the body as the definition of life itself.
What is "Angel Baby," the latest book?
Lori Lewis and December Carrera are married, but immediately become the whipping victims of a violent sexual predator. Senator Dick Bomber attacks Sergeant Lewis, and uses social media to slur her wife. Hatred is used as a tool to press forward a presidential campaign. The novel coins a phrase, of "Dick Bomber," as being the hidden beast on par with Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde.
Love and courage should outrank hatred and domination, but even fiction measures how to label a genre. "POST GENDER" is to say that it does not matter who you love or who possesses heroism. If two women love one another, or two men, it shouldn't matter. The stories featuring a soldier-and-athlete and a webcam stripper are not defined by gender. One is the definition of courage and determination. The other is the flower of youth and beauty. To take the two central romantic characters and reduce the story by "lesbian" or "gay" stories doesn't fit what these novels attempt to do, which is to coin a new phrase, of "POST GENDER." Likely other writers are framing characters to not be thus measured, but there does not appear to be any other use of the phrase. If these stories do nothing further than to expand the concept of writing so that characters are measured not by gender, but by the heart and mind, the effort is worth years as an obscure novelist.
