According to The Nation, if America's most prestigious newspapers don't publish your op-ed columns, this means you're a victim of discrimination:

The most traditional location to reach the political establishment, the Washington Post opinion section, is brazenly male-dominated.

At the New York Times, eight of the ten weekly columnists are men; one is black.
