Thursday so far

It's cold out again today.  I haven't ventured out.  I got a lot of laundry done and finished up an editing job.

Yesterday I got and read the published versions of a couple of stories that I had edited a while ago.  The parts that I had said were racist in the one story were changed considerably before publication.  I thought it was much better.  I had made a lot of editing comments suggesting changes on the story with a transsexual character, and some of them were made, so she was misgendered less often.  She still got misgendered the majority of the time, which was to some extent part of the plot.  Most of the misgendering was by the police, which didn't seem too far-fetched to me.  She was killed off.  It didn't surprise me that she was used that way in the narrative.  That was one where I wished I'd seen the story much earlier in the process, and been able to talk with the author.  I would have been capable of giving some "Trans 101" lessons.
