Thank you, too, for tactfully and concisely expressing what I couldn’t!
There’s a lot of debate about what should or should not be written. What makes a good story? How can it be more realistic? Well, for one, relationships should be real and not mythical. I think, in this day and age, we can dispense with the fantasy of a knight in shining armour rescuing the princess from the tower/dragon/horrible situation. Why can’t the ‘princess’ save the ‘knight’…Why does romance have to be so old-fashioned in the way it’s told?
A few issues I have with romance in story-telling are retold in these bullet points:
- Just because there’s a man and a woman in a story doesn’t mean they will form a romance.
- Men and women can just be friends.
- Men and men can be friends, women and women can be friends, without romance involved.
- A man can love a man without the need for any sexual context involved. The same for women…
