Are people getting too crazy about trying to explain genres? I mean to everybody I know Science Fiction is a genre about advanced technology, space travel, and other things along that line. But then you have people trying to say that's not what it is and trying to delve deeper into what science fiction "is". And this goes for all Genres I see. As somebody who just focuses on the story instead of the genre I think it's kind of weird. Kind of annoying. I mean in essence we are trying to force science fiction into a thin category and the more and more we do this the less we are able to wiggle and move. I doubt older authors cared about all that, they just created fantastical stories in space and they were science fiction. Along with other genres. I understand that everybody has their own personal view of what science fiction is and that's great but should we really be trying to force the genres into these thin lines? I personally don't and it bugs me that we do.
