    This thread (this forum) may provide you with more insight into the issues: http://absolutewrite.com/forums/show...814-Own-Voices

    Also, hanging around in this sub-forum is a good place to be when writing about cultures not your own; there are viewpoints that you wouldn't necessarily get from research alone.

    OTOH, if you're of neither culture, I highly recommend not using the tag. IMO, #OwnVoices stories are really for those of the culture to tell.

    However, respectfully representing such cultures in your stories is fine from my viewpoint. Due diligence and all that.
