Teen Girls cyber-schizoid

There's gotta be a smart-ass comment wanting to come out of this story, but I can't for the life of me narrow it down to just one: Teen Girls more likely to be Cyber Schizoid:

Teenage girls are more likely to maintain multiple online personas than other groups, according to an unexpected finding from an academic survey of how Americans use the Internet released on Wednesday.

You know, based on personal experience, this doesn't surprise me. Actually, thinking about this more, this isn't limited to cyberspace.

Of course my first thought was "how come all those teenage girls seem to be 40 year old men?"

(edited 'cause the last word of that sentence was an apparently Freudian "me" rather than "men"...)
