Not a very original question you’ve got to admit and, um, a little baffling from my point of view since there are a plethora of women blogging about politics, certainly way more than one can ever keep up with. All you have to do is look to find them on which ever continent you happen to reside.
The comment thread on the original post wasn’t particularly enlightening so I checked out posts on Hoyden About Town and Larvatus Prodeo which proved to be more illuminating. Hoyden About Town especially so as you can watch Possum Comitatus dig a deeper and deeper hole as his unexamined privilege becomes more and more apparent and hits rock bottom with a gratuitous racial slur.
I also enjoyed reading fuckpoliteness‘ response Fixing to have a meltdown cos women dare to have a contrary opinion.
My favourite response though was from Skud, Where are all the men bloggers? where the comment thread is stupendous. Her follow up post nicely summarises the whole thing.
When I hang out on the internet it’s mainly at sites where most of the contributors are female or there’s an aggressive moderator policy. I really don’t want to subject myself to the horrendous slurs and put downs that appear to be the staple of many male run blogs. If you have to ask, “Where are the women?”, perhaps you’re part of the problem.
