The Heroes in MMF Romance Don’t Need Classification

I've been doing a lot of research and writing around the subject of MMF romances lately (you may have noticed).  It's pushed me a lot further out into the world of MMF than usual -- I normally focus in tightly on my own MMF romances and the romances by other authors that I read for
