It seems, Alyssa Wright is not going to give up and continue to blame male osm mappers for their ignorance to such an important problem as child care places tagging.
I'm not saying men don't care (most of them actually don't) for kindergardens, we just don't have enough interest to make difference. And the interest is the main force that moves OSM forward.
It's not about sexism. When I see a power line, it's just a landmark for me. And now, imagine, some electrician says: "Hey! How could you tag voltage, but do not set the wire diameter?! Don't you understand this is so important?!"
Denied proposal is nothing. Nowadays OSM is all about usage. No one will start changing specific child care tags back to amenity=kindergarden, if thousands of women start tagging these in osm. Moreover, sooner or later you will see some male mappers start differ one kindergarden type from another. And, who knows, maybe we will even get different icons on the mapnik style! :)
