How certain are you that we're all men?
WRT Alaric's comment about W10 messing dual boot... I have seen this once. It was on my new laptop and on which I've installed Linux using EFI boot. Following a Windows update the grub menu went away. The BIOS boot selection screen still showed the Linux entry which booted without any difficulty. I reinstalled grub and all was well. I think I need to add this as an advantage for EFI boot.
You want to be careful when creating dualboot systems. You need to install older Windows 1st then newer Windows, then Linux last in that order.
