	I keep forgetting the level at which I must talk
 to. OK. Statements of fact are generally not sexist.  There are male
 homo sapiens. There are female homo sapiens. They are different. The
 previous statement is not sexist.

	Or are you implying you are not a man? That would be entirely
 possible, I suppose.  In which case I retract my statrement, you, as
 a woman, would obviously know what experiences women face in Debian.
