Because women who use EMACS are especially rare. I have found out about only one in the past 30 years, and she was trained on it for a job and doesn't use it any longer.
I'd suggest that you need to get out a little more, Bruce. I've certainly met many more than a single female EMACS user in my
past thirty years in the industry...
In any case, putting the supposed situation in terms where the male component of the audience (outnumbering the women at a ratio of, at a minimum, twenty to one) are encouraged to unilaterally
take it upon themselves to "relieve" those women of their "virginity" seems a pretty peculiar way of making a point.
