Discussion on: Please, don't politicize DEV!

Insisting some programming terms should not be challenged or discussed publicly is a political stance.

Asking people--who think differently from you, and who do it on their own time--to not challenge/discuss it publicly, is definitely a political act.

Totally agree.

Progress is made challenging the status quo, and to make the people talk about injustice in the current social situation you need to put everything in discussion, even terminology.

Obviously you can't stop after renaming a couple of things and call it a day, because now you have the people's attention. Now it's time to make an actual big progress in social justice.
