Kabuki actors think sf/f readers must be sick of doing the same old things all the time

Thesis.

Antithesis.

Non-sequitur?

::scratches head::

I don’t want to talk about the dividing line between sf and f. I don’t care about it, don’t want to see the genres split apart on the book shelves and consider it a dull topic. I’m especially embarrassed by the contempt some people show for genres they don’t read and by the resentment other people show when their genre is disparaged.

But to go from “We should split the genres!” to “They’re complementary and will save the world!” in one conversation? Come on. It’s bad enough that Borders is hosting the Same Old Conversations, but waving one SOC around to distract from the holes in the other makes me feel like I’ve had popcorn for dinner.
