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?

This is true. Often they simply haven't read enough to know this, whereas women are taught and cultured from really early on to see the world through men's eyes and consider their perspective, often before voicing their own.

Not me, obviously, who was raised by a militant single mother, but it's there in the culture.

If more guys read Tamora Pierce at 12 like Grant did, the world would be a better place!

(am reminded of the awesome story Sarah Rees Brennan tells on her blog of being a librarian sneaking copies of Maureen Johnson's The Bermudez Triangle to a bunch of boys, and ending up being a pusher for lesbian fiction to teenage boys!)

*snicker* I recall that! Her blog is like crack, and I keep crawling back for more (I can always count on her to cheer me up).
