C+=: A Feminist Programming Language and the Resulting Blacklist + Whining

Here's what seems to have got it started, a really, really dumb idea about writing a feminist programming language. This is mostly po-mo-inspired gibberish.

Here's the parody of that nonsense.

Here's a site associated with blacklisting anyone who follows the parody project. They've already had the parody removed from one site my whining about it.

Here's some puling and whining about the parody, including, of course, the de rigueur assertions that the parody is sexist, misogynistic, "transphobic," blah blah blah "rape culture" (an absurdly confused concept), blah blah blah how dare you mock "social justice warriors," etc.


It was a dumb idea. There is no such thing as an interesting or important "feminist critique of logic" on which to base "feminist programming." If anything ever deserved a parody, this did. In response, we get the typical types of responses that we have come to expect from humorless feminists and vindictive "SJW"s.

Normal, sane, rational, liberal feminists ought not to be putting up with this sort of nonsense. There's a reason that the vast majority of American's no longer identify themselves as feminists, despite the fact that most of them do identify themselves as egalitarians with respect to sex. And it's not "false consciousness" as a result of brainwashing by the "patriarchy," nor any other such nonsense that aims at deflecting the plain fact that too much feminist has moved too far left and too far down the po-mo rabbit hole. Extremist feminism is in a tailspin. It's a movement that deserves to be thought of contemptuously by reasonable people. And, though that should be enough to prompt outrage, as an added bonus, it's threatening to drag the remnants of sane, reasonable feminism down with it.
