rant about programming, misogyny, ableism, politics 

programmers love to talk about how much smarter and better they are than others but the amount of people being fucking disgusting is so huge that it scares me

welcome to programming land, here we have:
- men being assholes to women about literally the smallest things
- transphobia
- libertarians who can't shut up about their free speech blockchain bitcoin framework devops
- gatekeeping based on how easier languages aren't valid

rant about programming, misogyny, ableism, politics 

- men turning EVERY possible programming thing into a misogynistic "joke"
- people being condescending and rude over the smallest things
- literally every kind of shittiness

how wonderful :)
I'm glad I can mostly avoid non-queer tech spaces but sometimes the disgusting things still get through and I hate it

@AgathaSorceress like if u meet a cis guy and he's actually good at programming u can safely assume he's not straight

@haskal @AgathaSorceress fairly certain that carmack is the only good cishet programmer

@haskal @AgathaSorceress Funny; a few people I know have been legit surprised to find out I'm straight. The second of my three pinned statuses probably didn't help lmao.

Though now that I think about it, my antidepressants have rendered me basically aromantic, which just might be the real reason why I became a better programmer after taking them...

@haskal yeah they're mostly just people who spent a few weeks learning web dev or whatever and decided that now it's time to harass people and spam about how this new revolutionary corporate technology will boost your profits by 2000% and will make you an epic capitalist winner
