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?

It's so tiring, but it's true. As soon as the subject gets raised, people start arguing about things that haven't been said, and making so much noise that it's impossible to hear yourself think.

I like to assume no one is actively trying to *preserve* SF as a male dominated field, but it is really hard to cling to that assumption some days, when shit like this happens.

Now all we need is the various prominent female authors to stand up and talk about how *they* have never personally encountered sexism, and someone to start going on about how the romance industry deliberately excludes men, and we're good for another year.

*snerks* I don't think I've ever been to the Asimov's boards. Score! Would I be scared?
