oh, and yes i (now) comprehend that (a year ago) you said the charts would be updated, but the flagship chart (Author Gender Distribution by Award (Sorted)) obviously has not. A friend pointed me to the page — obviously relevant to my interests — and I look closely at the first image and just stop. It's heartbreaking.

Of course, the charts seem also to be about 'books' — excepting obviously the Campbell — but the omission of Rachel's 3.3% of all Clarkes ever awarded is hard to unsee.

and everything phidaissi said, plus tangent to the whole argument of 'transness' is that people such as Rachel are trans before their surgery (and — obviously — cis thereafter) so that the actual proportion of 'transpersons' can never be known. I suggest that the meaning of Tiptree's success as a trans-male author (without necessarily having been a trans-male person) is relevant to the extent that awarders believe they are awarding to a male and makes interesting the analysis of C. L. Moore, C. J. Cherryh, etc.

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
