It seems...telling that my fellow white lady authors 100% understand how shitty it can feel reading a Terrible Female POV from a dude author, but as soon as POC are like, "Hey, maybe it's not your lane to write a POC POV," it's all, "DO NOT CENSOR MY ART!!" or whatever.
Like, we have entire Twitter accounts dedicated to how badly men write women, we have all kinds of discussions about the way some male authors seem to want artistic clout for depicting women's pain, but we can't see how POC might feel that way about white authors writing POC MCs?
