Can anyone tell me whether this sentence should include "being" or not, please?
The novella represents this violation as being positive because the disruptive figure is a feminine figure
Any suggestions for rewording it, perhaps?
I guess you mean that the violation is not seen as objectionable when the actor is female instead of male.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
