Discussion on: Replacing master with main in Github

Honestly I was just wandering why they changed it. And when I saw the reason, I wasn't mad, I just think it's a dumb reason. I cant believe people would feel uncomfortable with that.

At least with blacklist and whitelist I can see where you're coming from even if I still don't think it is reasonable to feel uncomfortable because of that.

I think that getting feeling uncomfortable for the term "master" doesn't make sense. It would be like me getting offended every time someone says the word.

It would be like me, a latino, getting offended by the word speak because it was used to make fun of latinos and used as a slur "spic".
