But Medium doesn’t know a users gender. Why should it favor one group vs another? Why does the writer assume this? Especially since content is the driving factor in a platform such as Medium. Perhaps Medium should ask for users genders, and create a category i.e. “Top Female Authors” etc. That might be of interest to many using the platform. But to suggest it pushes male authored content and that it needs to push female to make it even is misguided especially since Medium does not know its users gender.
