Are There Women on the Internet?

I have been using the internet for several years, and I just realised I haven't seen any women on it. Obviously part of this is bias. I assume I'm talking to men most of the time, so some women might have fallen through. But even in a context where I know the gender, the number of women is vanishingly small. Out of my 210+ YouTube subscriptions, just two are women (and one of those was a man when I subscribed). I wonder if I am a secret misogynist? The only other explanation I can come up with is that men and women's interests are just algorithmically different in some way that separates us as groups.
