Today marks the first time I've looked up a Chinese word in Urban Dictionary. 😁

白左, "white left", apparently means naive western left-wing do-gooder.
The "[foreigners will have a harder time understanding passlist than whitelist so this breeds inequality]" is a real galaxy-brain take.

Not as bad as it could've been.
At least they won't go rename all pty slaves to... what? pty secondaries? pty performers?

@LinuxReviews What a douchebag, like that's going to solve anything. It's just virtue signalling.
