Since it's me who brought up all of this, I must explain my point.
Europa is a woman, and I said "I generally like the idea". I only
raised the sexist issue because Georg Jakob suggested she could be
particularly sexy (quoting someone, maybe Pennac, I can't tell).

While I noticed he was not serious about that, I thought the idea
was worth commenting on.

I don't  like calling it "political correctness", as most often
p.c. is hypocritical at best :)

/alessandro, hoping not to distract readers from Georg's update
