: But those of us who still enjoy romance novels and don't like being called degenerates for enjoying love scenes also have the right to feel insulted.
What the article says is this:
*Hatcher said women can develop addictions to the sexual fantasies in romance fiction*(this is not in quotes by the way)
This is a TRUE statement and it doesn't read - Hatcher said all women who read romance fiction become addicted to the sexual fantasies.
And she is quoted as saying the following:
"because I'm not saying (sex) is what romance fiction is as a whole."
I am not seeing what many of you are. There were no personal attacks on the readers of romantic fiction and certainly nobody was called a degenerate or any other name.
I'm not looking to debate; I just sort of feel bad for her being slammed this way.
