I just took a SurveyMonkey poll of Indie Authors, and the one thing that struck me (other than the predominance of questions about how much money I spent on ads), was one question which asked what genre I wrote in. 10 out of the list of 26 possible genres were all "Romance" related (ex: "Sci-fi Romance", "Paranormal Romance", etc.). In fact, several genres were only available as Romance (ex: there's no "Paranormal" option other than "Paranormal Romance").
What does everyone think of this trend? Is it exclusively geared to enticing female readers to read books they otherwise wouldn't (like sci-fi or mysteries), or are more men reading romances. How many 'romances' do you read (in the classical definition of the term)? And do you, as male readers, feel the tendency to classify everything as a romance, whether it is or isn't, belittles you as a regular reader?
