What folks who don't "get it " see...

Check out this article (warning, it's LONG) http://www.orlandoweekly.com/features/story.asp?id=10781

Was that not the weirdest take on the RT conference ever?

Obviously, based on his short-straw comment, this guy went into the assignment expecting to endure something akin to torture. And what he found lived up to his expectations.

Interesting, looking at the conference from a very different (and yes, biased) POV. He gave everything a strange/nasty twist, to fit his preconceptions, but that's human nature. Gotta say, even though it makes RT look like a bizarre-fest of the worst kind, his writing is quite descriptive.

What's sad is that he's not alone in viewing RT, or even romance fiction in general, with such disdain. There are plenty of others who look down their noses at romance readers. However, I will give him credit for the comment about admiring the romance readers' zeal for the genre.

At least that he got.

Man. That was some serious vitriol. Nothing new. Romance writers (and readers) have been the target of sarcasm for years. It's one of the main reasons I don't like to tell people what I write.
Too bad. He focused on the sex discussions and missed the publicity, business and writing information we all know was flying around. I guess that's easier than writing a serious piece about romance writing.
*shrugs* laugh all the way to the bank, Tawny.
