I was going to praise this headline for the correct usage of the term "hacker", but then in the first paragraph it uses the phrase "ethical hacker" 🤦‍♂️ techcrunch.com/2021/06/08/cisa

"ethical hacking" is basically the hacker equivalent of the term "straight acting [gay]", in that they both essentialize what "normal" (ie: non-ethical/"masculine") gay/hacking is

@volt4ire I'm still just glad that the hacker/cracker dichotomy has mostly vanished so that cracker can return to its rightful place as a derogatory term for a white person.
