One Comment Taken Out of Context

Which is never fair to do, but I found it interesting in its implications. It was a request on a list I belong to. The poster was looking for GLBT reviewers. Obviously none of which I have a problem with. But this comment was made in passing.

(And, let me hasten to add, that this review site has every right to limit their reviewing to what they find of interest -- I guess what I mostly find intriguing here is my realization that this casual remark mirrors how I used to feel about sex scenes in genre fiction -- unless that genre was specifically erotica.)

 Not interested in "overly erotic" or sexual fantasy novels but more interested in "serious" literature.

Huh. Thoughts?
