Stories come to you sometimes without warning. Sometimes I feel like I don't have control over the stories that I come up with. A story came to me and I knew the two male characters were going to be gay. One of them is married to a woman and is coming to grips with his sexuality. They are both in a very masculine line of work. I told the story to my wife and she kinda looked at me a little funny. She thought the story was good but I think it took her a little off-guard. As a straight guy, why does it feel like people are uncomfortable with me writing this? Should I write it? I know this is a touchy subject but I've written stories from both male and female perspectives and I don't see the difference. Is it just social stigma?
