        He wasn't saying that the sexism was "gud", he was referring to the public backlash that will inevitably take place based on the blatant sexism. I'm not sure how you missed that.

      Yeah exactly. My twitter stream is filled with all of the GitHub back and forth.

      Just took the HTML class... She actually referenced lorem ipsum and it's a pretty good explanation of the basics of learning the structure of a website. This looks pretty real to me.

      edit: doge references!

    I thought it was going to be something created by empowered women.

    Nope.

    The surprising thing is how good the lessons are. Scripting video models on HTML can't be too easy.

    This might be the worst thing I've seen on the internet in a week.

    Is it strange that this site does a better job at explaining CSS than W3Schools?

      This entire thing is "wrong" but it works really really well. It's well written and engaging.

    Also from the Philosophy page:

    We go fast, each lesson is a quicky, we’re pretty sure you won’t mind re-watching them :), pause it when it gets too fast, or.... ya know, FAP.

    Really?

    The quizzes suck to. Keep timing out. Although - as others mentioned, the content is easily understood. Which sucks cause its riddled with this nonsense.

    Learning through a reward system. Unfortunately, we live in a time where anything remotely sexual is sexist.

      I think we live in a time where people recognize when people are treated as sexual objects instead of human beings. About that reward system. Isn't it creepy that the reward system 'rewards' you with women? :(

      (It's kinda really creepy).

    thankfully this is only a Drupal site, otherwise I would feel very bad for the person who developed it from scratch.

    I'm trying to understand the motive behind this. Is it meant to be funny? Satire? Is it supposed to be serious? Like others have said in the previous comments, the lessons are actually pretty well explained. But I don't understand why they would sexualize it this much, knowing that most people are going to hate it.

      It's called publicity my friend. These kinds of things happen all the time. Everyone here is baiting into it exactly how they want you to. They didn't need to pay a dollar for marketing, they just used hoardes of caremad anti-sexism-in-tech people to do it for them.

      Really quite smart actually. Someone probably observed the hoardes that form any time any mention of sexism in tech comes up and were like welp, we could take advantage of this. And they just did, and it worked great.

      It's kind of crazy how so many people are aware of the 'don't feed the trolls' rule but can be so easily lured into obvious traps like this. "Holy shit I'm so mad let me now tweet this and tell all my friends about it!"

        publicity for whom exactly? there doesn't seem to be anyone claiming ownership.

          For their website. When you create a product, you advertise the product, not yourself. Whether or not someone has "claimed" ownership, someone does in fact own the website, and already has some monetization on it. Therefore more people using and talking about it == more likely they will get money. This seems like an obvious answer so maybe I misinterpreted the question?

    If you're as angry as I am I encourage you to fill out their support form asking them to take this site down and focus their talents on making something better for the community.

        I understand the skepticism but I don't think it can hurt. Also, if they get a massive amount of email disapproving, it does send a message that people aren't ok with this.
