When everyone demands authenticity in fiction, we fall all over ourselves to "prove" our identities. Maybe we're asking the wrong questions.
Is polyamory really queer? I think we should probably consider it to be queer praxis, at least in some sense.
Nora Roberts is apparently too spicy for people -- and we need to be worried about that. Book bans are coming for romance novels -- even clean ones.
Art is always political, which means even tropes like omegaverse take on political bents. We should be wary of bioessentialism in omegaverse.
Does an HEA always have to mean marriage and kids? Probably not, which is just one of the reasons the level-up romance is a problem.
Some people say they have a hard time believing queer or BIPOC characters could get to the HEA required in historical romance. That's silly.
I've been having a hard time reading m/f romance lately. While there are some good ones out there, there are a few reasons I'm struggling.
What should children call their omega parent in omegaverse stories? There were quite a few different answers.
Consent is curiously absent from a lot of romance novels. But a/b/o stories tend to play with this in a more intentional way. A lot of stories featuring a/b/o dynamics feature dubious consent—but does it have to be that way?
Western culture likes to depict pregnancy as some blissful experience. For a lot of people, it's a risky--even life-threatening--experience.
