So, is it?I know the topic of homosexuality has always been hotly debated on BZP whenever brought up, but I've checked the rules for Epics, Short Stories, Comedies, and even COT and none of them say it is against the rules to write a fanfic featuring homosexual characters or characters of the same sex kissing or anything like that.Now I figure, if it is allowed, it goes under the same rules as heterosexual romance (i.e. no graphic sex), but I need to know for sure what the BZP administration's stance on this is, 'cause I plan to post a story sometime featuring two characters of the same gender kissing and I need to know if that is allowed or not. The rules say nothing against it, but I just want to make sure there aren't any unwritten rules that forbid it for whatever reason.Not trying to ruffle anybody's feathers or anything. Simply looking for clarification so I don't get in trouble.-TNTOS-

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

I remember back on the old forums, stories with same-gender romance were banned after a lot of controversy. However, some time after that, I saw a story with that sort of romance in the COT forum, posted by a staff member. I think as long as it's just romance, no preaching or anything like that, it should be fine.

from the water to the hills and vales

is a place where the dark conceals a heavenly sky

underneath is shimmering light


far along on the milky way

leading down to a place where the sun won't set at night

and the stars glow perfectly bright

As far as I remember, the real controversy came in the forms of sigs. So yes, even though your story will probably cause some split feelings in your fans.-Bane

Homosexual romance in stories was banned on the old forum long before the signature controversy. In the downtime, that perceived double standard was rectified.

Heterosexual and homosexual romance are treated equally on BZPower. Both are allowed to be expressed, depicted, and described, as long as things are kept clean, as you said. Having two characters kiss would break no rules, written or unwritten.Question answered, topic closed.
