You're missing the point, which is that there's no need to force every work of fiction into a single genre category. A single work can fit into more than one genre at the same time.
How can I be missing the point when I've said that about a hundred times already?
No, you've been saying just the opposite. You've been insisting on a narrow definition of "Western" that excludes any hybrids of Western elements with other genres or settings. You're trying to erect rigid walls between genres and define them in exclusionistic terms, which is grossly missing the point of what genre is.
You obviously haven't been paying attention. I've said many, many times that concepts can and do fall into multiple genres. Go back and re-read. Why would the fact that words have meanings mean that you can't use more than one word?
