GIMP open source image editor forked to fix 'problematic' name

I've given you an upvote for being a sensible person. You're right, most people don't (and shouldn't) care about the things i've listed. They just tend to make people start shouting "SJW!" from the roof tops.

I guess i just don't see the problem, which ironically is the same answer I get for most of the causes i've listed from people that drive me up the wall. When asked for a free graphics tool, I always answer "try gimp" and very few people have gone "what did you just say!?", they normally say "What's that and how much does it cost?". If more people threw a strop about it, i'd be more inclined to back the name change. At least it's just a fork.
