I do not want to "omit" females - I just want to keep my mother tongue

the corresponding thread had several 100 postings, I don't want to have

You can be assured (and all people who posted to the thread you mentioned
above - probably mostly men as usual) that I will not spend my time with
this funy stuff - I'll prefer to save this time to talk nicely to my wife.
For interested people I have stored a log from a very interesting discussion
about nearly 10 years ago on tex-d-l list ... :)
