@lynnesbian Actually it's only "technically" if it relates to the technic region of France. Otherwise it's sparkling pedantry.

modern STEM education has created an army of naive computer scientists that know how to apply processes to data but are completely oblivious to the philosophical implications and criticisms of their work

Protip: when someone from an opressed group (e.g. POC, immigrants, women, etc) complain about something a privileged group tends to do (white, non-immigrants, cis men, etc), if you are from the privileged group, there's no need for you to comment assuring that you don't do these things. There's also no need to comment "lol yeah we're horrible aren't we" on a serious post about terrifying opression. It makes you seem defensive and like you're not taking opression seriously.

If you don't do those things? Congratulations! You don't get a medal, that's a bare minimum. If you do those things? Quietly improve and maybe boost the post that made you realise that you did wrong.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal if you're privileged but it gets tiring when half the replies on a serious post about opression are joke replies by the privileged group.

Have patience for other programmers, especially ones that are learning new things.

Remind yourself of something that was really hard for you to learn and how that felt.

Being rude to them or diminishing their progress will only make their learning process harder.
