It sounds sooooo stupid for that guy to say that girls only write romance, or guys only write action, or whatever. Or to say that only girls are fan fiction writers is down right stupid! I am a girl, and yes, there is romance in my stories, but theres lots of other stuff to! Its not as if I ignor the action, fights, character or plot development and focus tottaly on romance! Ok, so maybe sometimes I put a little more romance in my stories then there are in the movies. But even GL has said part of the reason that there isen't more in the movies is because he doesn't want to scaire off the younger auidences. And besides, if you look in the S.M.O.O.C.H thread, there are guys there as well as girls. I have to wonder if this guy ever actualy read any real fan fiction, or if he did, very much. I know for a fact that he never read our stuff or he never would have said all that. But sadly it is true that fan fic gets very little respect out side of fandom. Most people assume that we all are crazy fanatics that can't write. That is a compltely uninteligent assumption. The fact that this guy is considered a expert proves that experts aren't all their cracked up to be. He's not a expert, he's a dumb nerfherder!
