The problem with characterizing women by saying "X is to women as Y" is that there are so damn many of them. I could regale you with tales of my wife, friends wives, the girl (I use the diminutive form, not the literal form) at the video store with the license plate "GEEKLVR", and so on, but the other 3 * 10**6 might disagree with me, wish to qualify the statement, and so on.

While my original comment was really intended to be more sarcastic, it does indeed have truth behind it. This is perhaps (in my own experience with, let's say, the above women) because some fraction of programmers are intelligent or wise, usually funny, and often open to new experiences; at the same time, that fraction of programmers tends to be higher than the same set of people in general society (consider chim-chimney sweeps foree example, as contrast to the humble programmer).

Your mileage will vary.

(hmm, and on preview, it occurs to me that most people would find programmer chicks to be in general more attractive than chimney-sweep chicks)
