They do double-blind refereeing, so the referee assumes I'm a man, and uses phrases like "his argument" when referring to the author. This makes me wonder how much responses are going to be biased by my being female. People might not consciously say "Oh, a woman? Well, it can't be much good then," but I think there's an awful lot of that under the surface. I wish there was a way to test this, don't you? Alternatively, to avoid it, but I don't think it's quite the done thing to use a pseudonym in an academic journal.
Anyway, more about all this when it comes out. Stay tuned :)
* the one which says: there are ways to say it's okay even in classically orthodox places, so long as the community's interested in saying that.
** unless one thinks that it would be a really bad idea, obviously, in which case it would not be good at all. Some people think that. That is okay, so long as they don't give me grief about it. I am fine with people disagreeing with me provided they do it politely.
