Romance Novels

Grim, one of my favorite mil-bloggers is posting at, Villainous Company on the subject of "what do women want?" An age old question. He asks if the romance novel isn't a reflection of what women really want(a man) and thus feminism has done its duty by allowing the free expression of female desire.

All this in response to a piece in the Nation that suggested:

Feminism has not finished its job; a version of nonmushy, nonmarital sex that makes women feel good about themselves is still hard to achieve.
Commenter Annlee says:
I wouldn't know - I've never read any of them, either. But then, I'm an engineer - I try not to think in mushy anything.
I think I'm in love. Provided the first mate approves.
