As I've said before ... I don't see any reason why a genre cannot be "boys only" ... girls and boys don't only look different, but they think different too and a big part of being hardboiled is the mindset of the character ... an old school masculinity that a female writer can emulate, but a female character can only pull it off in drag ... equality is a nice thing when it comes to treatment, but to say a genre has to have it's female or male equivalent is ludicrous.

volente Deo,
