I'm in Orange County California.

That short Wednesday is baffling. On the longer days mom and dad can maybe stagger their schedule so they can handle it if they've got flexible employers, but that 5-hour day just looks like a gift to the local after-school care programs.

Okay, so, you think overrepresenation is a bad thing, now?

Nope. I didn't say that.

What I was saying is madewithcode appears sexist. I don't know if you were deliberately conflating madewithcode and code.org in order to strengthen your attack on the AC you responded to, but you asked someone to describe the sexism. I'd say the total exclusion of males on their site is prima facie a deliberate and sexist decision on their part.

If that's who they are, if they want to be in the business of supporting girls - and only girls, that's fine with me. But nobody should pretend to be surprised by an accusation of double standards

I'd like you to explicitly describe the sexism you are imaging exists in madewithcode, because you guys almost never do any research before opening your defensive little mouths.

Huh? how is madewithcode NOT sexist? Hit madewithcode.com and then hit all of the top-level links. Lots of pictures of people. Not one guy. MENTORS showcases 5 people, all girls. MAKERS showcases 5 people, all girls. COMMUNITY has one image of 4 people, all girls.

Maybe you just meant code.org - in which case maybe you're right, but madewithcode is clearly designed for girls and only girls.
