This is a great example of a story which will never yield any meaningful discussion. One one side we have people ignoring the tool in question and making rants about 'SJW' culture or jokes about racism and sexism. On the other side we have those trying to actually discuss the tool, but being undermined by people who can't get past the languages being used, and how they are 'hipster'-ish. The number of comments actually pertaining to this tool will be woefully small, especially compared to the off-topic comments.
This is a great demonstration on how hot-button topics will derail any discussion. It sure was easier to discuss technology on Slashdot when new languages were not overtly popular and equality and tolerance were not discussed. I guess those days have past.
