nerds getting mad over a few open source projects finally replacing the master/slave terminology for processes is the most pathetic nerd shit imaginable. changing the terms affects nothing in terms of how the software runs. It literally changes nothing but creates a slightly more welcoming environment for non-white programmers.

It's incredibly sad and frustrating seeing these assholes vociferously defending something so completely unimportant.

@emptyfortress @radicalrobit Omfg. Seriously. Socket/plug has existed long before the tech industry decided to start using gendered terms instead.

They wanna talk about "tradition", their sexist/racist terms are actually just a short-term fad compared to the actually traditional terms.


@KitsuneAlicia @emptyfortress @radicalrobit Male and female plugs? What do - oh you're talking about sword and sheath plugs?
