Puzzled

How many people does it take to say that the gender inbalance in SF outlets is a problem before it's seriously acknowledged, and accepted, as a problem?

Reasons, blame, motives, agenda, solutions and reason aside.

When is it allowed to be just ... an issue?

When will we be able to get past that discussion and start looking deeper at the more interesting aspects of it?

Just one more person needs to say it. I promise.

Would I lie?

It's one of those hot-button topics. It rises at least once a year I think, everyone gets very heated and angry, it all becomes a bit of a circus, and then it dies down again with the people who asked the question still angry and the people who answered either hurt and annoyed or laughing maniacally because they've been a troll the whole time.

Heh.

Well the sad thing to me is, there is so much that is interesting to discuss about it but the angry people and the trolls come in and shout it all down and it never gets anywhere.

Cause of course, there are many other aspects to the issue that aren't gendered which are just as interesting. And just as ignored but when you can't even discuss the obvious one first, what hope does the rest have?

And obviously the answer is to take the discussion elsewhere. Which is sad.

I'd try launching a parallel conversation on my own LJ, but I fear that would be counterproductive and probably send exactly the opposite signal to what is intended.
