Default Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

How many medieval women do you know who played first potato to the men around them in the western world?

Elizabeth Plantagenant. Eleanor of Aquitane was second only to her husband... everyone else stepped VERY carefully around her. Emperess Maude. Joan d'Arc. Catherine Medici.

I'd say yes if I didn't know far too many people who share my sexual orientation and incidentally share my view of AMC, or hadn't seen her books in too many kinky households to call it pure chance.

I fail to see what one's sexual orientation has to do with what one enjoys reading in FICTION. Anne's books are found even in very religious homes...because, as FICTION, they can be enjoyed without the reader actually having to accept PRECEIVED tenets on the writer's part.
