Python joins movement to dump 'offensive' master, slave terms

How weak are we to be affected by such terminology...

It confounds me every time - at how weak such champions of social justice are that mere words render them so overwhelmed...

Why can't we just take these words outside of their old or tainted context and use them as they were intended? It's a programming language, FFS, which is, as you know, made up of words.

I imagine at this time, everything else in python must be just 100% perfect that they can now look at window-dressing.
