    I could almost certainly code circles around you and It's actually the diversity brigade in tech that need to harden up. They can't hack competing purely on merit, so they have to fall back oh "b-but muh feelings". Pathetic.

    All the recent political posturing in tech is the exact same kind of self-absorbed wokeness that Ricky Gervais was talking about at the Golden Globes. The kind of people that perpetuate it deserve the same kind of drubbing.

    Long time lurker. Props to Michael for creating an informative site.

    Although I know little of LLVM, I remember learning about k8s back in the day and switching the master/slave terms to primary/secondary instinctively when reading or when speaking to teammates. As I reflect back, I did it to feel comfortable. If I felt triggered, I do not remember spending much time on it. It was easy to switch up my thinking and communication. I did not spend any time thinking about how others would judge me -although I'm sure they suspected why.

    I did care that I would cause confusion. I would explain "BTW when I say primary/secondary I am referring to master/slave nodes" and kept it moving.

    If someone were to use master/slave terms in the same exchange, I would not bat an eye. I probably would just not feel connected to them.
    If someone were to insist I use master/slave terms because it makes them feel comfortable, I probably would... I am not sure. I have not been put in that scenario. Can't imagine I would not oblige if they were serious. I do not mean to blame it on my upbringing or how I was raised, but I do care about connecting with others.

    It's obvious spending time changing branch names or lines of code is different than changing lines of thought and manners of speech. Adapting how I communicate with others is significant to me. I can relate/connect in a small way if a project wants to do the same.

    Considering the state of the Republican party I honestly don't think anything that tries to get them out of power is a waste. I'm really not a fan of what the party's leftmost Bernie (who used to be a very run of the mill European socialist) wing has devolved into, but I take that over what the Trumpian Republicans have devolved into any day of the week.

    There's a big difference between pandering for votes and actually doing something. The issues with police brutality have absolutely nothing to do with race anyway. That's been debunked with statistics over and over again for years. If you get your "facts" from demagogue talking points, there's no helping you.
    Increased accountability, better training, psychological filtering of applicants and less "Shoot first, ask questions later"-type operating procedures is the solution regardless if you believe that the issue is racism or those issues and others like them. Where I come from we have of those things over U.S police and people universally trust the police. The last police racism controversy we had, which was years ago, turned out to be a hoax. A few days go there was in incident where people shot fireworks at police and yelled Black Lives Matter slogans at police when they went to break up a brawl and public opinion on that was entirely in the polices' favor.

    Oh for crying out loud... They don't even have branches named "slave" so the whole "It's referring to slavery and triggers people"-argument doesn't even work.

    Sure, with cancel culture rampant and the recent anti-police protests in the U.S both people and organizations want to ensure they're seen to be on the right side of history. However this doesn't achieve actually anything. Well other than some idiots thinking they're doing something to help the cause when they're not doing anything of the sort. It's just narcissistic virtue signaling and nothing more.

    If you want to actually do something about the issues people have been protesting after Floyd's death, do something of actual value. Donate money to organizations and charities that combat the issues that caused his totally needless death. Vote for and donate to politicians who promise to do something about it. Actually put your money where your moth is. What you don't want to do is pointless virtue signalling that doesn't achieve anything of value.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identity_politics



    I am highlighting the word exclusive as often identity politics fanatics claim to be fighting for "inclusivity", also mentioned in this LLVM debacle, which of course means including everyone except those who are different.
    I like this snip from the "Identity politics as a vehicle for oppression" section of RationalWiki's Identity Politics page:

    The social constructionist basis of modern identity politics makes it attractive above all to sheltered academics. Postmodernism and deconstruction, broadly speaking, are its handmaidens.

    While a basic concern for issues of representation and social influence is perfectly necessary to all walks of liberal progressivism, more radical identity politicians have a track record of offering absurdly oversimplified interpretations of society — judging, for example, the mix of skin colors of models and actors that appear in advertisements as an important civil rights issue, and views the integration of advertising materials as a significant civil rights victory, rather than as mere tokenism.

    Its chief political victories resemble this; "speech codes" and other new forms of etiquette are some of its more conspicuous successes. In essence, identity politics is constantly generating new forms of etiquette. But, since the function of etiquette is to perform social status and rank, and all etiquettes create an underclass of the rude and uncouth[20], identity politics constantly undermines the egalitarianism it aspires to in theory, and as such tends to exaggerate class resentments the more rigorously its new etiquettes are enforced.

    Social constructionism invites us to believe that we can change the world by using different words. As such, building on its postmodernist tendencies, identity politics as an academic exercise generates a great deal of jargon. This obscurantist approach comes at a price, however — deconstructionists have been criticized for constructing elaborate systems of such jargon which seems indistinguishably like a device for wrapping empty ideas in the appearance of sophistication.
