So much of what you say was thoughtful and had a point, and then you say:
“Lastly, writing has been a male dominated endeavor for centuries. I’m okay with women gets the spotlight right now.”
What I hear when you say this is essentially that you don’t care if quality writers are being dismissed because of their gender, as long as they are men. In other words, you are okay with ongoing injustice and inequality, as long as it shifts the other way. It’s time to tell the child he will no longer eat, because he’s been eating for about 10 years now, and that’s enough.
