Feminist Programming Language

I suppose it had to happen: a raging feminist has decided that all existing programming languages are sexist. She proposes that a new language should be developed in line with feminist ideology.

God help us.

1 Per a discussion elsewhere, this is an example of Poe's Law. Someone proposed that language to mock feminists.

You're saying that the original article is a parody?

Problem is that there have been equally insane propositions like that from the pomo's in the past which really were serious. Like a proposal that physics was having trouble with fluid dynamics because it was inherently feminine and most physicists were men. Or an analysis of the game of Chess in Freudian terms. Or someone who objected to Relativity because it "privileged" the speed of light, and such privilege is unfair.

I see that Ace has posted some updates to that effect.

I love the "C Plus Equality" logo!

4 Sometimes I think that 4-chan and Something Awful are in a contest to see who can be the most subversive.

5 Ari's feminism is real, but once C+= appeared, the public embarrassement caused denials.
