This idea came up in the thread, and I didn't see anyone object to the idea of
having pictures of men in the package. You'd need to find or create the content
and make sure it was Free though. And for all the non-native English speakers,
the term "babe" can refer to both men and women, so the name of the package
isn't an issue.

This is pretty simple, at least from the discrimination side. Find or create
the content, submit a bug with a patch to integrate the content in to the
package, and wait for the maintainer to include it. If he chooses not to, make
your own package with it and upload it.
