A bunch of romance readers/writers got pissed off last week due to this article:
And their response was this:
I love reading romances. I don't consider myself addicted (mainly because I don't read just romances) and, while not as offended as these people, I understand why they're offended. People made terrible claims about Christian Fantasy and how evil the Fantasy genre in general was. I was ready to kick some butt too.
I'm glad that these readers and writers were outraged and spoke out.
Of all of the dumb things to make a claim against anyway. . .
No genre is perfect, I'll admit that. But just because Romance is a successful genre and offers escape from a troubled world doesn't mean you should blackball it.
