I wish I could help you on that, but as we all know, per Writer's Code, Part IV, Section 9, Sub-section 37-Q, Article 6:
"All writers must write only those plots and characters that reflect who they are as people, furthermore, any and all preachy, morals-type stuff must also be representative of the author, lest said author wishes to have his or her feet tickled with dried bulrush 18 hours per day for a span of 31 days and be forced to write book reports on each and every volume in the "Sweet Valley High" series at the rate of 6 per day until completion."
Hey, I don't make the rules. And in the past, they were much harsher.
Asimov was burned at the stake for writing about aliens without actually being an alien, whereas Bradbury, who was able to substantiate that he was actually born in the Libra System, had his citation dismissed.
These are not the type of people you want to mess with, so fly straight.
