One of the worst parts about reading romance novels is having to hear the constant opinions of those who have never read a romance novel.
Below are a collection of stupid shit people deign to say to us romance readers and the best way to respond to those inane comments:
Aren't those like porn?
You actually like those books?
Why don't you read a real book?
Wow, you must be obsessed with sex.
Aren't you embarrassed to read those?
What does your boyfriend/husband think about you reading those books?
That's one of those dirty books, right?
I heard those books give women unrealistic expectations about guys.
Why don't you read something intellectual?
Just kidding. This is the correct response:
Don't let anyone ever give you shit about your reading choice. If they try, well, you know where to send them.
