That's (very unfortunately) the general situation of women in
computing. I don't think that changing a name is going to change
long-standing (bad) habits, but if it in some way can help attract
more female users/developers/writers/whatever, I'm all for not using
the term "LAD".

On the other hand, think about those poor guys whose name is male in
Italy but female in every other part of the world - we get treated as
females but we need to shave every morning just like males!
