Ok, so right off the bat I am not sexist, I know thats a extreme but lets just put that in a box in the corner.
I enjoy listening to songs from people I've never heard of before, especially those with not so many fans because I think thats where you find the gems on the audio portal.
Over the past few weeks I've noticed a trend, one perhaps others have noticed too.
Being female on the audio portal at least (I don't check Flash/Art portals so I can't say) will pull in quite a audience to your songs, but not just in views.
I've noticed that female artists will get more reviews, ratings, fans, blog replies and I've talked to a few of the female composers I know here and they often get PMs that are more "Hey how are you?" as opposed to "Commission" or stuff like that.
So what I'm just saying is, am I the only one who notices this?
I'm not making this thread to like talk about a solution, it isn't a problem ergo it doesn't need to be fixed. Its just a observation.
Its no secret that NG since its humble beginnings has attracted a lot of very young children and teens. Hell when I was 15 or so we used to bunch around the PCs in the classroom watching madness videos and laughing our asses off.
I reckon it could just be a youth thing. Paying more "attention" to female composers for the sake of them being girls.
I dunno...is it just me who sees it?
Let me know...its a interesting topic I think.
