But surely only men write on that stuff

Posted: October 23, 2010 by Jender in But surely you're male

More often than not, when I send in a paper for anonymous review, the comments from the reviewers refer to the author (i.e. me) using male pronouns. (Perhaps I am especially prone to this problem because I work on the more technical sides of philosophy). It’s not the end of the world, but it does worry me that so many reviewers just assume that my papers must have been written by a male rather than female philosopher.
