Male lesbians?

    On “Stop Lecturing” – Every time I hear about the whole romance books being whatever arguement coming from someone who has obviously never read them, I am reminded of a catty comment from a friend years back.

    “Ignore him, he’s just mad because the same stereotype about men is that they’re all functionally illiterate. So be proud that the worse he can say about women is we read crap, at least we read.”

    It still sort of makes me snicker, because I know it’s not true. Sharing novels with my StepMum and my dad was/is one of my favourite things to do (And yes, my dad read what could be classified as crossover sci-fi romance or mystery romance too). As long as the book is written well, and I (or the other readers) like it, who cares what someone who isn’t going to read it anyway thinks?

    Gaah, that ‘porn for women’ thing makes me furious. Women watch porn, deal with it or don’t. It happens anyway.

      That drives me crazy, too. Every so often some … individual … asks, “Heh. So, uh, is that like, you know, ‘porn for women’? Heh heh heh.” And I tell them, “Well, no, porn for women is actually a totally separate genre — some great work out there, too. But I’m writing something different.” Someday, someone’s going to respond, “Oh, really? That’s so interesting. Whose work are you following right now?”

      That hasn’t happened yet. But when I was in NYC for the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance conference, this did happen:

      During a discussion after the presentation on one of the papers, a conversation broke out on the whole ‘romance as porn for women’ thing. Eloisa James observed that such a conflation served to cheapen not only romance but porn as well. I totally got goosebumps. That was an awesome conference. 🙂

        I so want to go to that some time. I enjoy all the Romance scholars at PCA.
