I think the module is offensive -- which is not inconsistent with it
trying to be funny  Funny and offensive is sometimes a fine line.  I'm
not saying it needs to be yanked -- I don't support censoring "bad
thoughts".  I would rather see the author withdraw it voluntarily.
Even in Acme, I'd rather see the Perl community trying to be inclusive
and not make jokes at anyone's expense.

People do remember Alias' ill-considered Acme::Playmate talk, right?
(And his very responsible apology afterwards, too)
