Are posts which should otherwise go to other lists accepted on -women purely because they involve women? It looks that way from yesterday's list description and past activity. If a support-seeking discussion involving only men about stuff which should otherwise be on another list takes place on -women, is that acceptable? If so, why is the list name accurate?

It does seem likely that a gateway list is considered useful. I don't see why that means debian should be seen to endorse sexism.
