+1, while there likely is some truth in the observation that osm has a finer grained differentiation in topics men are supposedly more interested in (not very surprising, looking at gender distribution amongst the contributors and how tags come to life in osm), this talk did reveal few insights and the actual example of the rejected proposal was ill chosen.
