Here's a quasi reflexive use of the nominal that I fortuitously saw today. (

*wild unicorn herd check in.*
Let's make it really clear, people. If you identify as a POC/nonwhite person
and you read or watch scifi or fantasy, give yourself a name check in this
thread. I am particularly wanting shoutouts from people who do not live in
the US and who have still managed to read genre fiction.

I'm tired of people trying to render us invisible unless they have been
given a memo about our existences.
