A lot of men don't think the cartoon is pornography.

I ask a friend of mine to send me the same kind of pictures of a man, so
I hope I'll have a patch to hot-babe in two days.

They are confusing somethings when compares sexual discrimination with
any other kind of. Be a women is not a religion choice and is not a the
same thing than choose a Desktop Manager. You are argumenting against
equality. I'm a women but I have the same rights you have. Can you
understand that?

I'll paste here a part of a message from Hellen on Debian-women mailing
list. I'm sure you will read and think a little bit about.

"It is also the type of discussion that deterred me 
from becoming involved in Debian for some time."
