[...] Think of it as a gateway list that
supplements, but does not replace, lists like -mentors. If you'd read
FAQ you'd see that this is a goal of the -women project.
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
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.
