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 interesting what you say and thanks for sharing it. It's also hard to express how I feel without wanting to make other people feel bad but yeah, it's how it sounds and feels when people say stuff like "I'm not interested in it". Because ... yeah, I mean. You read my blog and that's inherently a female story.

I never really realised how much I have lived in a world where I don't get to not be interested in male stories cause that would then mean I would miss out reading a genre. It's weird to think you could do that, I guess. Or maybe weird to think half the world doesn't have to do that. And that's kind of fascinating. And also that half the world could be oblivious to the other half's experience of the world.

Well, hey, I'm not oblivious (obvious comment aside). I guess I have the privelege, if you want to call it that, that I could be if I wanted to be, but ... yeah, I think it's all fascinating too.

It's just ... specfic hasn't proved the best vector for me to seek understanding of the female experience, you know?

Yeah, well, it is fascinating, isn't it?

I think so. When you get past all the blame and accusations, it is really fascinating.
