computer programming is an art that was pioneered by women, and the fact that men have swooped in and claimed it as their own and used it to advance misogyny and sexism is an absolute travesty
Same goes for a code of conduct. You don't need to actively enforce it, its presence alone naturally cleans the surrounding area.
@ky0ko I'd recommend using AGPLv3 even for non-networked systems exactly for this reason. So that Google et al can't grift on it.
@ky0ko computer programming could also become a basis for expressing imperative logic that can help people learn to do things other than program computers, something that should be made accessible to everyone in the same way maths or natural language should be.
@ky0ko I still remember one of my first introductions to the concept of programming was Clarissa Explains It All, where a young Melissa Joan Hart programmed her own simple games as a way of stress relief, often about dealing with her annoying younger brother, not unlike the simple conceptual games I see pop up still today
@ky0ko ... the reason that women pioneered it was because men believed it was too menial for them
men didn't know how to touch type because that was "women's work"
I mean, props to the ladies who pioneered it but...
the reason women pioneered it makes me super uncomfortable
