Wait, what did I miss re:python?
Oh the master/slave thing.
Honestly, as a PoC residing in a country with an unpleasant history for my ancestors, the terms never bothered me.
I feel pandered to and insulted when things like this happen.
Root3557162d@windlessuser Socual Justice is never about "justice" for minorities. Its just a convenient means to enact their desired political changes.
Look throughout history at all of their complaints and achievements. They've never actually helped anyone, and often insult the very people they are supposedly helping.
Voter ID laws ostensibly opress black Americans because, literally, "they are unable to use a computer or find out where/how to get an ID." Sounds pretty racist to me. Chinese/Korean/Cambodian clothes and wedding dresses are offensive to women of those nationalities? -- except none of them care, and many think it's awesome that the US is using their clothing styles.
They never help those they say they're helping. In fact, I would posit that they've never helped anyone at all. Everything they do is based entirely on emotion, and that's entirely useless.
I agree, OP
Root3557161d@CozyPlanes There was an outcry here in the US over "cultural appropriation."
Some women here were wearing Chinese, Korean, Cambodian, Indian, etc. style clothing, and a few of them wore those countries' traditional wedding dresses.
SJWs made a huge deal out of it, saying how offensive that was to the people of China, Korea, etc. How we should leave their cultures alone and never use anything of theirs because 'doing so cheapens and diminishes their culture.' (Paraphrased)
Except there wasn't anyone from any of the countries listed that had a problem with it. Many of the women interviewed from those countries actually appreciated and encouraged it.
Root3557144d@HRT-713 I don't know.
I could come up with a hundred partial explanations that approximate it, but the truth is I don't know.
The best I've ever come up with I'd that they're just crazy. Like, literally crazy. Defects that make their brains not work correctly. Why (and how) else would someone completely ignore simple logic and reasoning?
I'll point to the Linux CC/CoC issue, the python master/slave debate, etc. Those are pretty good examples/reproductions of what's going on here in the US.
But it's also that our politicians and media are actively encouraging this behavior. Some politicians tell their constituents to gather groups and scream at those of other parties -- and their followers do just that!
So it's the intolerant and violent directing the crazy. And anyone who points out that this behavior is horrible becomes another target.
It's getting scary here.
