okay cindi i'll bite: the link apparently won't open for me unless i get a new puter so i did a google search and already found people discussing blog discrimination! what in tarnation is a blog?
and while we're at it, do i have an inner pig? :)
"Halley wonders why maybe 3 of the top 100 bloggers are women:
It's clear that the top male bloggers are not denying women their blogroll inks, for the most part. It's clear that the top male bloggers take every chance to list women bloggers and engage the topics that they raise. These men are too smart not to take us seriously. We are their colleagues, friends, girlfriends, sisters, bosses, moms, daughters. They want the best for us. Guys, feel free to blogroll us anytime.
Still we are almost invisible and I want to know why. What are we doing wrong?
I doubt the women are doing anything wrong. But something is not right. I'm aware of the usual things that lead to gender inequality, but I honestly don't know why it's showing up so strongly in the Top 100 (aka the "A-List"). Is it a function of the broadcast model since, as Halley points out, "56% of hosted blogs" are created by women." Or is it the fact that even the best-intentioned men can't full exorcise their inner pig? Or both? And more? I don't know."
