identity and responsibility

In a comment to an earlier blog post, Celeste asked the following questions, which deserve a discussion of their own:

I think this is an issue that writers of any minority group–-religious, ethnic, and so on–-face: must we write about our “own” group? Do we have a responsibility to write about our own group? And, on the flip side, if we write only about our own group, do we limit ourselves unnecessarily? Do we risk being dismissed by a larger audience?
