Women's Fiction -- gender bias?

Saturday, March 26, 2005
I'm not actually going to expound on this topic because Brenda Coulter and booksquare have done an admirable job without my help. Little to do with romance, but an eyeopening take on fiction, marketing, and the state of society.

Wow! Isn't hard to believe that five years in the 21st century, people are still making distinctions based on sex?
A man and woman may vert well write differently, because Lord knows, our life experiences are different. But since when did "different" mean either good or bad?
Thanks for posting this. It was an eye-opening read.

Sela, thanks for linking to my blog. You're a peach.

I've never bought into the *woman's lit*, *fill-in-the-blank lit* labelling. Several years ago they were ALL general fiction--humorous, moody, suspenseful, and you of course expected a good dollop of bittersweetness--but not of this non-sensical stratification.
