Heh, "should" and "must" in the same sentence. In human behaviorist terms, that is pretty "aggressive". In other words, what you think is of the utmost truth, anyone else is just wrong and must/should think as you do. This smacks more of an personal agenda than it does a mere observation.

So, if you were a 14 year old girl, how would seeing another young girl in a bathing suit offend you? It wouldn't, would it? I don't think so. Seeing a young girl, from a young girl's perspective, pictured as a female Indiana Jones would just be "cute". And, it might "entice" young girls to play Linux games on Linux. Then we would have more of them as grownups as contributing members. I think that it the obvious point, until the specter of MALE GAZING horrible MEN is introduced. Again, I see more agenda here, than observations.

I think, in the future, if you preface your remark with "it would be better if", or "in my opinion", then you show respect for your relationship to your reader. Aggression is always an abusive behavior, by definition.

Suppose they introduce the nuclear family as race contestants, Mom, Dad and brother, along with sister Sara, all in bathing suits enjoying themselves with a go-kart race day at the beach?? Perfect Disney family style. Would that be more acceptable? Ric
