Given that prog acts were very popular and top-charting in the seventies, there must have been some women who bought their records back in those days. Or did only men contribute to these sales ?

I am 100% sure it's by polish painter Jacek Yerka, who is inspired by Hieronymus Bosch, René Magritte and Max Ernst. The Bosch influence is especially striking in the following triptych :

I know a couple of women who like some progressive bands, but not prog in particular. They are also not nearly as passionate about it as my male friends.

You're right. That's Mr. Yerka, an author of fantastical surreal paintings (which I like to view when listening to prog) :)
I don't like all of his stuff, but he has some really beautiful paintings.

That's quite interesting! I've known only 'the creation of birds' but I didn't know the author. Really interesting paintings, but maybe too dark.
But i love art in general and try to make my own stuff as well. Maybe art was that what helped me to begin to love prog.

Why don't we agree that if he feels like a woman and wants to be a woman then he has the right to be a woman.

^Wait, feeling like a woman and wanting to be woman goes hand in hand, or not? I'm losing in English. Or do you just mean we should call her woman?
