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?

but the other aspect of that is ... if response rates are slow, and you are not likely to get your story bought cause they don't seem to publish female writers, the pace at which you can build your own cred at a writer is slowed UNLESS you can get it to an outlet you think is more likely to buy a female story. Or not not buy you because your story is about a stay-at-home mum.

So that ... if you can get more publications in a shorter time, a bigger, less female-friendly outlet might consider you more worthy cause you have a name elsewhere.
