You don't have to agree - just weigh in.

Everything you have said on this topic is entirely correct. You were right, and remain so, to ask for a more diverse range of voices. You are right to say that an endless stream of Megan McArdle diavlogs fails to achieve this goal.

Hang in there, and don't stop with your righteous complaints. There are many more here who agree with you than don't. If you're not hearing enough voices contradicting the few chauvinist trolls who are polluting this thread, I suspect it's because a lot of us, like you, are exhausted from the futility of past efforts of trying to overcome bigotry with reason.

To Exeus99, danking, and JoeK: If you were wondering whether I had you in mind when I said chauvinist trolls, congratulations on having your first correct thought of the day. And save yourself some typing -- I'm not going to debate you on this. Rid yourselves of the notion that putting a pseudo-intellectual gloss on your prejudices has any chance of interesting me.

[added] Oh, yeah. PaulL, too.
