    Totally thought this was a joke post. Also not sure this post is really designer news-relevant.

    Is it just me, or is there an overwhelming absence of female input on this thread?

    I did a quick scroll down the page and counted only a small handful of names that one might expect to be given to a female (sorry, not to gender-normalize : / ).

    As a woman, my reaction to this site is that I'm glad someone is putting a spotlight on some of these comments. Granted, they are pulled out of context. I'm not very outspoken or vehement in my opinions, in general, let alone regarding feminism, but some of the comments on the site seem to be inappropriate no matter what the context.

    Discrimination, of all kinds, can be subtle and still have a massive impact. On top of that, it's hard to see the discrimination if you're not the one experiencing it.

    So... I don't mind that someone made this site. I'm glad they are more open to put their opinions out there than I am.

    Hadn't noticed that but I love it. Not sure the checkmark is my favorite icon to represent that I've read something, but it's helpful to see where you've been.

    Re: the layout of the site, I was thinking the exact same thing. Especially with this organic illustration style with contour lines replacing the icon-line-style of the Dropbox brand.

    I was thinking the same thing a few days ago.

    This TedTalk is about seduction and hints at "no" sometimes meaning "yes": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBIL2sdfoVc

    I wonder how many "yes"'s start out as a "no". Sometimes it's just part of flirting, right?
