This can come from men or women, though usually with different complaints. My favorite is "reading romance gives women false expectations".
Or they say it's "porn for women"--um, no it's not. If I'm enjoying this book for the story, it ain't porn. No insult to woman-centered porn here, but romance isn't it.
