I agree, to some extent. Indeed, imho, number 4 and (particularly) 11
mascots fit your complaint. On the other hand, other figures such as
number 2, though clearly using a female appearance, seen well
acceptable to me (number 2 and 3 seem to go together, one with a
female look and the other with a male one....not that I like them that

For what is worth, anyway, there is none in these mascots that I
really like. Even penguins (Debian!=Linux). Maybe 2 and 3 *together*?

My opinion and, indeed, only mine...:)
