This is beyond absurd. I actually don’t have words to accurately describe the utter feeling of “what the fuck?” I feel.

Stupid as stupid gets, it s getting out of hand I guess, some do way worst than that & wont have anything done to them. Weird.

But the word isn’t even remotely offensive or sexual in anyway. Are people that thinned skinned and sensitive?

I truly worry for our younger generations.

At this rate, all type of communication will cease as everyone will afraid of being labelled a bigot or whatever.

I get having your own views but I don’t understand suppressing others views or opinions. It is not right.

I fully support making the Linux community an inclusive and safe one. However, this decision seems like the pinnacle of enforcing the word of law, not the intent. Gotta say, as a woman, I’m not offended by the word boob.

So am I but it appears the insanely left-wing and SJW’s are more than making their mark. People need to stand up to this bullying and just say “no”.

#11

This I understand but it s getting too far.

Looks like some have nothing important to do appart from making trouble( on Debian s team or whatever) Can be said from real life also.

It’s the same shit that went down with Linus and the kernel team. People need to learn to accept criticism, even if it is delivered in a harsh manner. Sometimes that’s the only way to drive it home.

Agreed! People differ Some look better than others, some are more intelligent than others, some speak better than others, some are stronger than others. Well, except for me, of course. I am PERFECT :wink:

Has anyone here worked in corporate environment? It’s truly awful: soul less individuals brown nosing and backstabbing in order to please the overlords. Bleurgh…

I like that things are progressing, I just hope progress doesn’t get hacked by evil :grin:

What! You don’t like being a progressive? This ultra left craziness is insane. I said that before and got my ass reamed for it, but truth is truth. What they call liberal today is NOT liberal but rather a strange twist in socialism. And it’s intrusive all over the world. You can’t say anything without offending someone in this mindset. And now, they are trying to invade our Linux world? Is nothing sacred anymore? I agree with inclusiveness, but not to the point of exclusiveness. I’m telling you, things will get to the point where you will be attacked for wrong thoughts, we may end up with the ‘thought police’ if this keeps going in the direction it’s going. Political correctness stems from Communism, and this turns my blood cold. I don’t know guys, but I don’t like what I am seeing and am fearful for our future generations. Even saying Merry Christmas and have a happy new year is also offensive to someone. They rather you say happy holidays. Well, I am going to be political incorrect and say MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all. I will now get off my soap box…mumbles and grumbles on the way to my safe space. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth::sweat:
