    Well said! I think the issue here is that Romance itself as a genre put against YA and Erotica, they sort of like mingle instead of pulling apart. And I don't think these latter genre even put Romance in a better position in society, it chokes it.

    I absolutely LOVED this video! I've been a fan of romance novels since I in middle school, and they are literally what made me fall in love with reading.

    I grow so, so tired of our culture and media sneering at romance novels, and every time I see it happen I always mentally scream, "Romance novels are not your punching bag!"
