A boys' club

Recently Graham Harman responded to the criticism that speculative realism is largely, if not entirely, a boys' affair. Now, here is another suggestion to address this criticism. Invite Amie Thomasson to the party. She is a post-Kantian defender of ordinary objects against various attempts to ontologically deflate them. In addition to being an ontological realist, she is commited to a flat ontology. She maintains that objects of all sorts are on equal ontological footing, such as tables and chairs, numbers and fictions. This would make her a friend of object oriented ontology and thus a member of the club.
