From what I’ve seen of the code, the code’s main purpose is removing the idea that “not true” = “false”. For example, while 4 + 5 = 9, it can also equal 11, 3, -27 or mashed potatoes if it feels like it.
This has the unfortunate side-effect of rendering if/else statements non-functional, but that’s okay, because they represent eeeeevil binary genders. Instead, every possible variable needs its own if statement. This effectively makes algebra and trigonometry impossible to code, making the coding language useless to mathematicians and anyone who’s taken a webpage course.
In other words, this is on par with the “magnets disprove gay marriage” experiment.

Wow, that’s bullshit! I hope this gets crushed…

Which code? The parody code made on Github which is loaded with intentional logical fallacies? Or the real one?

My apologies, I was referring to the original as posited by Arielle Schlesinger.
By the way, Github took down C+= earlier this morning, after pressure by twitter.

Where did you find it? Like I said earlier, I couldn’t find evidence that anyone developed C+= other than 4chan and 4chan only did it as satire

I know there’s a difference between Schlesinger’s proposal and C+=, and I’m referring entirely to the former. I linked the comment in question above, in reply to one of your comments.

Sorry, allow me to make this clear: they believe that mathematics as it currently exists is pushing some kind of agenda, and so needs to be changed? Please tell me I’m wrong about this, lest we end up e-petitioning the laws of physics to allow protons and electrons to choose their own charges…
God this is retarded.

“logic has been banned for political correctness”
Seems like it’s already happened to some extent

the idea behind that blog (and all feminist dogmas ) is that whenever there’s anything where women perform worse than men, fail, earn less on average etc. there’s need to find a way to turn it into ‘I earn less not because I work less than men but because patriarchy’. Since women are generally speaking not very interested in engineering or IT they will be making claims that’s solely ‘because programming languages are sexist’ or ‘schools are not doing enough to encourage wimin to learn’
