Thank you for reminding us all that there is such a thing as toxic femininity. Not cool to rain on another person's parade like that.

To the author of this neat project and anyone else that might feel put off by comments and people like that, please just don't. Solve the problems you encounter and do it with pride. No matter how small the step, YOU did it. That is a victory, and don't let anybody tell you any different.

Sharing your work and your positivity with the world will expose you to toxic comments and ad-hominem attacks like this. Face the criticism for what it is; take in the constructive criticism but brush off the rest. I'm not saying you shouldn't act decent, we should all be excellent to each other.

Technology and development is for everybody. It sees no race, no gender, and that should be the mindset of a programmer.

Oh, no doubt. If we started moping around after each and every harsh remark, we'd get nothing done. XD

Thanks for the support and kind words, Christopher. 🙏🏼
