Disturbing Submissions Trend

Due to the abundance of problematic submissions of this variety, we have added the following language to our submissions guidelines:

We do not accept stories depicting gender-based violence, or any form of abuse of women, girls or children. We do not publish any stories depicting rape in any form. We do not publish any stories in which women/girls/children are physically/sexually/verbally abused, made into sex slaves, or held captive for sexual purposes. Though it takes great strength to leave an abusive situation, surviving/escaping abuse is not the only sort of strength a woman can possess.

I am still deciding whether to write a longer blog post on this problem and if so, how to frame it.

Yes, we were getting that many. Sometimes under the heading of "strong women stories."

I want to blog about this, but I'm not sure how to yet.
