>One bright spot in the survey results is the publishing industry’s gender composition, which leans heavily away from men/cis men and toward women/cis women

There was just a thread on this two days ago:

http://www.salon.com/2016/01/26/white_women_of_publishing_new_survey_shows_a_lack_of_diversity_behind_the_scenes_in_book_world/

Marlon James claimed that writing in this time was basically pandering to white women, and on his facebook he claimed that even after his man booker he got news through the grapevine that he was almost blacklisted from publishing news outlets until some black female executives got sassy.

>Black gay author
>fighting female oriented industry because of said females skin color

It's a great shame when feminism becomes female chauvinism.

As to the OP, I don't care. I never intended to become a writer. Neither do I intend to read contemporary literature until I'm done with the classics, which should take a lifetime.

So essentially the publishing industry is disproportionately gay, disproportionately female, and fairly proportional in regards to the disabled (19% of the us population is reported to have some sort of disability but over half of those are considered severe which would most likely exclude them from most jobs to begin with). Even given the fact that those employed are disproportionately white by an excess of about 16% that still seems a fairly low disparity when ethnic/cultural attitudes towards reading and education are considered (there are several statistical studies regarding this).

Fukuyama says that identity politics has given new life to the right, in that it both unifies the right against the excesses and demands of omnipotent moral busybodies, and breaks the progressive left into hundreds of squabbling identities that do not ever work as one.

LGBT make up about 3.8% (self-identified) of the US population, a place where it is relatively normal and accepted. I'd say that's close to actual numbers for humanity (meaning nobody is hiding or lying out of fear/shame/etc).

A recent Gallup poll found that Americans think 23% of the population is LGBT. Surprisingly, to me anyways, is that this number has been maintained for much of the 2000s. It's not a recent development coinciding with SJW or gay marriage or anything like that.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/183383/americans-greatly-overestimate-percent-gay-lesbian.aspx

I think it's funny that the false diversity of 80s/90s cartoons like Magic Schoolbus or Captain Planet where the makeup of reality is essentially a checklist of identities (the Black Kid, the Wheelchair kid, the X kid) still holds to this day. In fact, when people find that reality doesn't hold up to their false expectations, they demand reality shift itself.

I work at a lit agency and can confirm that this is also true on the agent side of the business. It makes for a deeply uncomfortable office environment.

I think like 25ish. There are some really old agents who are men and are basically too rich to come to work and too stubborn to retire. I think there's a good amount of resentment for these guys because of how much money there was in publishing when they were making their bones, and so I'm thrown in with them even though I'm young and poor as sin. I've literally been sat down and told that nothing I do career wise can be considered earned or of equal value. Truly the stuff of a standard issue MRA's wettest dreams.

Identity politics is capitalism's latest way of neutering and fragmenting the left. All of a sudden oppression is all about individual attitudes and microaggessions rather than anything institutional or built into the system.

It's all about category quotas, not quality or suitability. Each extra 'diversity' category statistic is something that can be used as a weapon against something they want to criticise.

I wonder what would happen if something like the Oscars actually did a full-pandering list with all the favoured 'diversity' groups accounted for. I suspect it'd still end up being criticised as insufficient in some category or other, as there is no satisfying these people.

RIght it would appear to me that the identity politics side of the left would be ok with 1% of the population controlling whatever ridiculous percentage of the capital as long as that 1% was a scale to scale reproduction of the population demographics of the US, including all races.

The problems with this type of thinking are pretty obvious- the preservation of black "culture" from appropriation despite the fact that black culture is oppressive to blacks, white men make up the majority of the proletariat in the US at least (majority of working poor I mean) and are neglected, tons of cognitive dissonance. it's fucked

I am not surprised. Your SAT scores haven't been impressive about you in 4+ years and a $1,000 scholarship is pretty fucking meager, yet you still feel the need to point them out. Here's a question: Why did you only end up with a $1,000 scholarship in college if you were smart enough to get a perfect score on the SAT? What else did you do, or rather not do? Test scores are not the primary concern of a humanities program.

I can dig it.

I applied to several publishing internships (both longshots and more obscure imprint houses) while at uni and never heard back, and the few times I've mingled with people (read: women) in the publishing industry it became pretty clear that my ilk wasn't really a part of that world.

Also, they were all always a tv sitcom's version of a "bookish" type.

I don't think I'm too thirsty for it, but many of the women (white, admittedly) I graduated with in journalism are living their reporter-gal-in-the-big-city-dreams with very little talent or ability. People complain about mediocre white guys, but these women are getting a pretty glaring pass.

Programs definitely take in middle-aged men, but not ones who half-ass the application as a little curiosity. It also helps if you have a flexible career that would let you do all your work while not needing a funding package.

People don't suddenly become 'mature' at 30 or 40. There's all kinds of bald beer-gut dudes out there who are more juvenile that many teenagers.

Bernie is a hardcore SJW. Don't even act like he isn't he wrote that "satirical" paper that assumes that men enjoyed watching women get raped, and thus they enjoy it or some shit. He loves Eugene Debs and the USSR. He is a complete and utter commie. He is only using democratic socialism like Lenin did. He loves open borders. He loves Muslims. He hates white males. He loves pay gap theory. He loves multiculturalism. He's a SJW. He has been his entire life.

Muh multiculturalism cucks.

Shh, this is the /lit/. The place where pseduo-intellectuals come in droves. They actually believe communism and multiculturalism work.

What am I underestimating about it? It seems natural that the elites of society want leftism, a natural nation wrecker, so they can push their globalist agenda. Every single mainstream news source is left-biased.
>inb4 faux news they're literally donating millions for open borders and to the Clintons they will endorse the democratic candidate over trump
All of the left's supports come from sheltered individuals believing that government can take care of their problems and create their perfect utopia. People who are pragmatic and experience reality are right-leaning. The left is basically all telling of pure corruption. It's simply a tool for the powerful to use and exploit to keep holding on to their power.

what's the problem here? onlylike 2% of the population is gay anyway..

And the fact that single mums are essentially killing literature is totally fucked too.

>>7644005
White straight men write the best literature.

>>7644013
>White straight men
Not so sure about straight, in that the western canon was mostly formed in times where homosexuality was heavily frowned upon, but yeah, white men essentially built our whole aesthetic and philosophical framework.

see you're conflating communism and identity politics again
movement of people is one thing, movement of capital another
one must be against both

so is trump i assume

Just throw in straight to trigger SJWs. 95% of the population is straight, so a straight guy is much more likely to come up with something good than a gay guy.

97.5%, probably higher.

A quarter chosen randomly would be representative. A quarter chosen because they responses may not be.

You know OP, I was going through Amazon's thriller section and I was intrigued by the number of titles that begin with "The Girl"

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"

"The Girl on the Train"

"The Girl in the spider's web"

"The Girl with no past"

and this is just the front page of the thriller bestsellers. Makes me wonder.
>>
>>7646916
Gone Girl too, though it doesn't have the exact "The Girl" title structure.

The trend started with the Dragon Tattoo series. Their titles were changed to make them more marketable in English - in the original Swedish, the first book is called "Men Who Hate Women". The English titles took their cue from the second book in the series (The Girl Who Played with Fire), which has that title in Swedish too.

Given the ongoing financial success of the various Girl-title books, expect a deluge of similarly-named books and movie adaptations over the next few years.

can you not separate the left, which means basically socializing capital to various extents, and liberalism, which means free borders and capital flows?
your shit's crazy, family

It's fascinating, the "girl/woman" thing. I call women girls in both RL and prose, but that's because I'm an amoral sexual opportunist who likes to infantilise the opposite sex. So I wonder if that's the reason behind the broader use of "girl" by both men and women - under capitalism everyone wants to be a child taken advantage of, and women, being naturally the "second sex", fall into the linguistic and social positions of such a pedophilic urge easier than men.

Then we are in agreement sir.

You cannot comprehend how self-obsessed the fair sex is.
