Finding one edge case doesn't refute the original point. Most /r/programming-esque lingual slut-shaming is by people who seem to be very good at being Right On The Internet, and not much else.

And that's a woefully terrible thing to be good at.

What evidence do you have that a propensity to "slut-shame" isn't distributed evenly between people who are and aren't good at things?

Purely anecdotal. I'm just highly suspicious of individuals who feel the need to slut-shame anonymous people on the Internet rather than actually make things.
