@kaniini @alfred @lifning @trwnh

I am 200% okay with this because it's the punk rock thing to do

I don't see how people could be mad about it

@vantablack @kaniini
yeah, the joke was originally added in the 90s at the height of the anti-abortion movement. but the fsf has ALWAYS been political. it's ridiculous to ask the fsf to not be political imo

@kaniini @vantablack there is a big difference between making a "freeze peach" argument vs. making an argument against silencing pro-choice commentary or information.

@kaniini @vantablack Carlos O'Donnell is not a woman, and the example in the mailing list was purely hypothetical

@kaniini @vantablack i would appreciate a link to the email complaint in question, because there hasn't been a complaint in 26 years as far as i'm aware

@kaniini @vantablack i've actually extensively searched for context about this, because unlike many other people, i don't keep track of arguments about software documentation on the regular

nonetheless, i'm not finding anything in about 25,000 results for "glibc abort"

@kaniini @alfred @lifning @trwnh I'm a woman and this is what I've had to say about it

pro-choice anti-government feminist snark is, for lack of a better term, GOOD -- and something there needs to be more of, especially in the tech field to counteract mindless techbros
