A Facebook friend just sent me this link to this opinion piece --  Damsels in Distress: Why Do So Many Contemporary Women Read Old-Fashioned Romance Novels? -- with the comment "Thought you would enjoy the read."

 

If by 'enjoy' my friend meant 'take violent exception to almost every sentence,' then, yeah, I had a blast. Damn, but I get so fucking tired of people acting surprised to find out smart, feminist women read romance!

I'm so so DONE with this old, tired argument by men to regulate and/or try to explain women's behavior of which they know absolutely NOTHING about. Go find a life, dude!!
