Am I complaining? You bet. Am I asking for some affirmative action? Indeed, I am.

Males vs. Females in Progressive Media

Is it possible that twice as many men as women are worthy progressive commentators? If we go by the numbers of those who have a platform, we might be led to that conclusion.

You may quibble about my criteria in the lists below, but you cannot deny that men substantially outnumber women in commentary that should include such issues as putting the sexes on an equal footing. These lists do not, and are not meant to, constitute a scientific study, so please dont write to tell me that you disagree with a particular inclusion or exclusion. Its just one persons perception. Look at the big picture, and then try to tell me Im wrong.

Oh, and while Im at it, may I mention that as far as I know there are only six African Americans on these lists?
