I think that more women would be attracted to Perl if it had more "pink" functions (the name "perl" is certainly a good start). I recommended some changes in perl6 to make perl more "feminine":
  • instead of chomp(), use chew_lightly()
  • chop()=>slice()
  • sort()=>organize()
  • sleep()=>beauty_sleep() with umask()
  • sin()=>naughty()
  • push(),pop()=>slide_on(),etc. (these functions are often misinterpreted by women as come-ons)
  • no=>no (this keyword is often misinterpreted by men)
  • kill()=>sigqueue() (I have POSIX backing on this one!)
  • fork()=>spoon()
  • use=>request_one_nighter
  • truncate()=>spank()
  • split()=>divorce()
Hopefully, my additions will be considered and incorporated in future releases of perl. I can only see them as beneficial to the Perl experience as a whole.
