However, Vanalynes' point is well taken and harkens back also to the 
underpinnings of a  "street action" take by the grrrls scouts at 
Macworld in  San Francisco in 1996 ( and who said that these days 
were "soooo over"?!)   I've take the liberty of attaching an 
image/documentation of one of the street posters which speaks for 
itself .  Actually ( between the rips )  the poster posits the 
question:

"  What are the two ways for a women to get onto the internet?"

Answer:
1.  Be naked;
2.  Be a man.

Seems as if  Daria went into rewind in a time machine and aced this one .
