The problem is software development has attracted a lot of "young" people who believe their task is not to build working software, but "to change the world", and since most of them come from some political area, that's the result.

Don't get me wrong, I think people should be involved in things that matters, just code can't become a battlefield of different political orientations.

While softening the meaning of some words may be wrong, many words have different meanings depending on context. A software of missile launch that call "abort" is in no way trying to assert something about women rights. If a process runs in a sandbox, it's not because of a childish behaviour - and is using "childish" as a pejorative offensive?
