Quick! Be dismissive of a subgenre!
Apropos of a passing comment of aliettedb's in the WorldSF Blog's (Global) Women in SF Round table discusion.
UF is very easily dismissed in the debate, and it’s making me quite ill at ease. In “male” terms, one possible analogue of UF would be military SF–which is overwhelmingly written by men–but I don’t see it being military SF being dismissed quite as fast as UF.
