I was outraged, flabbergasted and seriously pissed by Ginia Bellafante's so called female perspective on the female fantasy mindset. I mean Really?! How seriously skewed is her opinion? Hey everyone is entitled to their own but to stick a general label on the female fan base as a whole to reflect her feelings is just stretching her review beyond "her" opinion and labeling all female fans as some kind of sex-crazed nympho is stretching reality a bit too much. I mean come on, I admit I like a little sex and romance thrown into the storyline, but then I also like intriguing plots, lots of movement across the board and violence and strategy scenes too. I prefer a good fantasy story with strong characters and a well thought out world. The fantasy books and movies I enjoy have to have all those elements for it to work for ME. So all I can say is Bellafante can speak for herself and I will do the same. I hope all fantasy fans on the web make sure their voice is heard in response to help drown out and smack down her assumption that she has even a remote clue about anything in the fantasy sci-fi genre or how it pertains to us females. I for one am glad her ass just got handed to her.
