Indifference is an entirely admirable reaction.

Eh. Dressing babies up for pictures isn't a new thing, especially on milestone days.

It all stopped after 30. It stopped seeming cute? It stopped feeling comfortable? I don't know... But it's age related and i guess it made me feel a some sympathy for the birthday kids and their reversion to childhood.

So i've been thinking about other things i've stopped doing, without really noticing. Walk around without a bra on, occasionally. Sit on the floor just because i felt like it. There are a lot, really.

I've been thinking about this a bit b/c i keep reading books where heroines stuff their faces w/ food and the love interest gets turned on... And i remember when i thought eating w/ appetite was sexy but i don't anymore.

I think they're meant to imitate photos that people take of their babies on their birthdays, so it's like... Going back to childhood on the last day when you feel like you can get away with it. (For sure i started feeling different about indulging in childish habits after 30)

So many of us will go to the mattresses for harmless fun if it's alien-billionaire-shifter erotica and i really think that the principle loses its persuasive power if we insist it only applies to books.

Not because we should be better but because if we mean half the stuff we say about our own genre we shouldn't *want* to. If those photos are fair game... Well then let's swallow some of that medicine ourselves, hmm?

See now i feel bad because sometimes mockery is a harmless way to let of steam and niceness is overrated anyhow... Which i guess is why i don't care if the rest of the internet mocks those birthday photos. But coming from within the romance community, it grates.

Have you read Chronicles of the Guyaki Indians? Very sympathetic fieldwork on cannibals. Kind of permanently killed my horror of cannibalism. (Mind you i have never seen much difference between animal and human meat, and eat neither...)

Of you spend a healthy percentage of your time defending pure fluff at least be sympathetic when other people find *their* pure fluff.

We defend our right to read books because they're fun, whether or not it has any redeeming characteristics. Yes, sometimes romance is brilliant and incisive and revelatory--but sometimes it's pure escapism, pure fluff, and we defend that too.

I need to stop tweeting about the birthday photos. It's a dumb flash in the pan outrage generator and i don't really care. But i do feel like romancelandia should not be in the business of mocking people for frivolous entertainments, since we spend so much time defending ours.

Sidenote: I prefer the word "horseshit" to "bullshit." "Horseshit" takes more muscles to say. It has a rounder sound, a pleasant heaviness on the tongue, better swear-umami. In conclusion, horseshit is the superior shit. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
