My wife was *easily* trained not to fear the black text screen, and
I put startx in her .bashrc (with a little wrapper so that it would
only run from the console, not an xterm window).

Certainly your GF can be similarly trained.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
