While sexism issues being widely discussed recently, appearance of such website is not to say controversial. I'm still not sure whether it's a joke or not. Videos do have an educational value, the concepts being explained well.

I saw this pop up on my Twitter feed yesterday. They've succeeded in drawing attention and IMHO, it's distasteful and offensive. To your point, Nikita, the gender inequality in tech is a hot issue right now and furthermore I want to encourage more women to contribute to PH (more variety + perspective the better generally). I'm afraid this may turn some of them off and while this could lead to an interesting discussion, I'd prefer to hide this to avoid potentially upsetting some people.

My first reaction was similar. But it would be interesting to see whether it's that offensive. I'll be not surprised if there are girls among founding team. "Sex sells". GoDaddy had similar marketing for years. Agreed that probably it would upset some people, and its better to be removed. I'm also advocating for more women in the community.

*thumbs up emoji* Thanks for understanding, I'm hesitant to "censor" based on my subjective opinion and realize I will most likely run into trickier product submissions in the future. I should create stated guidelines to help with this.
