I do not use Luna or Sailgirlz but just wanted to say that i totally understand why one would want to change Sailgirlz wording, i also find original wording offensive. I am surprised by attitudes of most comments.

Only a complete SJW idiot would find it offensive. And who cares what you SJW idiots think? That's right, nobody.

Great, I won two other bets! Thanks for calling people SJWs and idiots!

But guys, I'm sure you can do better! So bring it on, my popcorn is ready...

Of course, changing "girl" to "profile" removes the sexism in a joke application meant to keep track of the mood changes in every person with a uterus you meet. Armchair activism at its finest!

Armchair activism? Well, I was sitting on my sofa while using the SDK and some nice search & replace tools. So probably the result would have been better with an armchair, you're right! I need to get a comfy one tomorrow!

"Removing sexism"? Really??? Is that your claim to stardom?

How about things that bring actual value, for example:

  • Real record of past cycles
  • Prediction of future cycles based on actual history rather than on made-up parameters fed to the program
  • Possibility to record the bleeding intesity, cramps and other symptoms
  • Possibility to record having sex (distinguishing protected and unprotected looks like too much to ask)

Any one of the above would bring what is essentially nothing more than a glorified biorhythm one step closer to a useful tool. Pick any two and the tool could actually be used for planned parenthood.

But that would require an actual work, not just replacing "girl" with "profile"...

Well, if I wanted to go for some stardom, I certainly wouldn't have chosen a fork of a SFOS application. :D

But straight to the point, you have some interesting feature requests. Why don't you simply implement them yourself? You seem to have a lot of experience and know what you are talking about...

Unfortunately, I have to admit that I have different priorities and currently spend my scarce spare time on another project and of course family/friends. This one was just a time-boxed effort of a single evening... 

Of course it would be a different story if I were paid for it. So if you want to get the work done, just contact me and make an offer. I also accept pound sterling. ;) You can find the contact details on my homepage...

Ridiculous. How is it "sexism" if an application is named after GIRLS when GIRLS are the only one of the TWO genders who menstruate? Shove your gender neutral bullshit. I will continue to use Sailgirlz, and I give this stupid fork the lowest possible rating.

Ygriega: If you feel offended by "girls" in app for girls/women you are not a man at all

Ygriega's picture

Guys, you seriously disappoint me! Nothing better than that? But check - next bet won for this comment... :)

Ygriega's picture

Wow, the fork is not even half a day online and already got such a comment. I was already betting how long it may take... ;)

But seriously, the wording which is used in SailGirlz is IMHO simply offending, especially to women, but also to me as a man.

From my perspective women are the primary target group for such an application. Well, I'm not a women, but I personally would feel not very comfortable if I used an app where I'm just one "girl" out of several ones. And yes, this feeling is not an abstract one, if you'd ask some of the (very rare) women in the community, they most certainly tell you exactly that.

If you're a heterosexual man and want to track your girlfriend's/wife's/whoever's cycle, well OK - there are now different options to choose from. I simply don't see any reason to call grown-up females "girls" or "girlz" and as I'm not simply complaining, I invested a few hours and did the fork. The app has the exact same functionality as before, but uses a neutral wording, e.g. "profiles" instead of "girls" and replaces such things as "current girl" with "information". Nothing more, nothing less...

This is open source and freedom in general. You have the freedom to fork, to improve and especially to choose. So thanks for your feedback, and have fun with SailGirlz!

And maybe as my closing words: Just because I'm against sexism or chauvinism this doesn't mean that I've articulated any opinion concerning certain concepts in Gender Studies which you are obviously referring to. :)
