But in trying to express diversity and inclusion, the author unintentionally draws attention to what seems to be a priveledged worldview. (I could be completely wrong, it's just my perception).
I do not understand why in every situation where there's a romantic relationship mentioned, the author feels the need to say so-and-so's "partner." People have all sorts of relationships, but there word "partner" is usually reserved for specific types of relationships, the same as descriptors like wife, husband, girlfriend are reserved for specific relationships. This removes meaning from the situations where partner is used in society, and adds confusion to where terms like girlfriend or husband are used. It distracts me from the message.
I am fairly certain that the majority of readers of all orientations would not be offended by the mention of another orientation.
Also, it seems that the author tries really hard to use unique names, which is generally good - names like "Esteban" (for example) - help the book to be more universally relatable. But the effort to create this "diversity" is a bit extreme. For example, is it really necessary to use the spelling "Anh) (Ann?)? I then start to wonder why the fictional person's parents decided on that spelling, which pulls me away from concentrating on the topic at hand.
Additionally, when names standardly associated with specific cultures are used, the individual is usually in a stereotyped white, middle-class situation. If relatability (sorry, fake word) is the goal, then different people (whatever the name may be) should be in unique situations. Not everybody goes to college or worries about a job promotion interview.
This review makes me sound like an uptight jerk, but I have more important things to worry about...to a lesser panicky degree than before.
