What’s the opposite of chick lit?

I’m getting very, very sick of seeing every novel with a female protagonist getting tagged as “chick lit.” If a woman acts like a real person it’s only appealing to other women? Oh, come on! I don’t believe that. It was okay when people just used the term for stories that revolved around the fashion industry or something, but at this point the term has spread out of control.

Where’s the opposite? Maybe novels with guys in the starring role should be labeled “dick lit”?
