But isn't that "Bro" part very exclusive? O_o

It's used in a very tongue-in-cheek manner. We never meant it to sound exclusive/offensive/toxic. πŸ˜…

Women can be bros, too. πŸ˜‰

I know many females who are better bros than their male counterparts.

"bro" usually indicates a toxic culture. Long hours, no breaks, fixation on "masculine" activities such as competitive fitness (heavier weights, more reps). It's a hard pass from me.

I'm sorry if the name having the term "bro" in it is such a huge turn-off for you. It's meant to be humorous, even if it didn't come off as humor to some folks. If you use the app, I think it will be pretty clear that it has nothing to do with toxic culture. I hope you give it a try.

I completely agree..it immediately sends me the message that the app's not meant for me. Which could be a conscious product choice and that's okay, but if that's not the case, this is very exclusive. It also reinforces the stereotype that programmers = men.

I agree. The name and design is very exclusive so it appears you are only target cis-gendered men. The idea is great but is very exclusive. Making it more inclusive widens the market.

I think we could definitely work on that. Thank you for checking it out and giving feedback. ☺️
