You raised a very good question and as a writer, of course I am concerned with what I not only write but read as well. We as writers have every right to express our opinions, of course, but where do we as a community draw the line? When does it become an issue of whether or not to police ourselves? Sometimes I think, because we are writers, that we have more empathy and the ability to translate emotion better than most. That we are more sensitive than the general populace because of our creative gift. Therein lies the problem! Because we are involved in the written word...we have the power in some way great or small to influence the thinking of others. In a perfect world there would be no effect and even in this world there is very little effect. Most people have sufficient intelligence to distinguish between right and wrong, reality from fantasy (fact from fiction). So knowing that, what is an acceptable risk? (Even if it only affected one person). What is the resulting collateral damage? (Even if it only affected one victim). What is the artists' responsibility in this? Because we are artists in some form of media accessible to the public at large (even if we are relatively unread) Do we not have some kind of moral obligation? There is no pat answer because even amongst ourselves we will have differing opinions on this subject. We are all individuals with individual thoughts and ideas. That is why we are a collective of artists with different styles, techniques and ideas that come out in our writings. Should you or I garner fame from our expression regardless of talent and skill level? Yes!!! By all means!!! Wouldn’t we all like to be published? But at what expense in the process? We all have to act responsibly. But we should not censor each other in regards to the content of our work. We should police ourselves in our moral obligation to disseminate our craft. We each have to write under our own morals with all the facts at hand. Sometimes it takes the opinions of others to make that decision and that at least is a good conscious effort. But the final decision must rest with each one of us. I for one, shall not participate in any form, shape or manner in the detriment of another. My opinion of refusing to exploit the act of horrid and unlawful acts such as rape or murder if it had no sociably redeeming value on a forum such as this would be my own. I have to live with my conscience. No one else can do that for me. But that is my own belief and should not be meant to stop another from exercising their expression. It is an individual choice. Of course there is such a thing as boycott and that, in itself, is an excellent example of speech too. I would have to worry about my work being boycotted if I were to do something not considered acceptable by the community at large. I know that I would feel worse if I did anything to exacerbate or condone through my work anything that was injurious to another. I have to weigh the benefits and the risks of the things I do. Fortunately there is a myriad of subjects to keep me busy without having to ever run out of creative options and resort to something that I personally do not find acceptable. But the last word is we must be allowed that option to create. But just because it comes from an artist does not make it instantly art. That is something we must strive to perfect every day and on each attempt. Keep in mind, if we write something questionable or potentially objectionable, then we should post a forewarning to give the reader or reviewer the option of declining to read it.

Interesting write here, sisters... You know, we can't go through life trying to be politically correct.. or such. Do e owe it to our readers to protect them fom something that may hurt them? <shrugs> I don't know. Maybe a good compromise would be for you sisters to come up with a rating warning. <grin> You know, like the movies ;) TWPG.. Oh wait, maybe not, then people will think you are pregnant.. ;) But on a serious note.. I know in some of the places I visit, if someone posts something they think might trigger someone dealing with PTSD they will simply add Trigger warning to their title. I don't think there's a right or wrong answer here hun.. But, this is a writing site... a place to let your creativity flow. So, to say you can't or shouldn't post certain things.. just isn't right.. SO hows that for a rambling response.. LOL Guess I didn't give you any answers at all... but I gave ya a 10 rating, does that count?
Love, light and laughter.. never forget the laughter!

Dear twisted sisters...I think the world is full of many such siblings and it is surprising the name hasn't been used hundreds of times as it is such a common phrase.
No one would think for a second that it could be anything but an unintentional mistake that it was used by more than one group,glad you all have it sorted out now and come on you second lot of twisted gals ,pick out somthing original and write write write ...that is what we want.
Love to you all,
from the sisterless twisted Kay.

may i make a subtle suggestion...and compromise? though you are not related by blood, we wish not to shed any, either. perhaps it would be fun to have the twisted sisters, and twisted sisters,,the sequel.
kate and i (who are blood related..and have shed a little in our youth) were not offended, and would not have intentionally hurt either of you. we found it funny that you would choose the title we had used for ourselves. bringing to light that there are more twisted sisters out there, than these ole gals.(note, that was ole, and not old)
my hugs and love to you
other twisted two
let's have some fun now.
no apology needed, but appreciated.
