computer programming is an art that was pioneered by women, and the fact that men have swooped in and claimed it as their own and used it to advance misogyny and sexism is an absolute travesty

we need to reclaim programming as something for everyone

we need to reclaim it as a thing to use for fun and as a personal tool, instead of something you learn for careers to impress corporations

computer programming should be a place where misogyny, sexism, corporations, and capitalism don't belong

@ky0ko computer programming could also become a basis for expressing imperative logic that can help people learn to do things other than program computers, something that should be made accessible to everyone in the same way maths or natural language should be.
