/* -*- mode: Xe; file: fizzbuzz.Xe -*-
* Toward the destruction of the techbro kyriarchy: a feminist
* reclamation of "Fizz Buzz"
* @language: Xe 0.1-pre-alpha
* notes of interest:
* - C+= considered phallic; replaced with (and pronounced) "Xe",
* source files have extension ".Xe"
* - header files are known as headHer files, with extension .Xir
* - masculinist/dualist concept of "booleanism" removed entirely; use
* present() (see below; this also supersedes the officious
* "return" with its overtones of mansplaination)
* - presenting '0' for successful completion lacks positive
* confidence in feminist progress; present 1 instead, however xe
* pleases (even if xe pleases to present as 0)
* - for() unduly privileges loop counter variable, replaced by
* among()
* - assignment constrains its lefthand side to an externally imposed
* presentation and orientation; replaced by accepts(), and lefthand
* side is free to refuse (NO MEANS NO!)
* - not-greater-than test imposes hierarchy upon free and equal
* co-agents, replaced by much more respectful honors()
* - pre- and post-increment enforce outmoded gender roles upon
* lefthand side; replaced by improvesBy(), which the lefthand side
* is free to interpret according to its own ethics and values;
* also, as with accepts(), improvesBy() solicits enthusiastic
* consent from lefthand side before taking any action (note that
* lefthand side may call revokeConsent() at any time, during or
* after)
* - modulus test considered phallic (% now known as the "cock and
* balls operator"); replaced by envelops(), honoring the supremacy
* and beauty of the vulva
* - if/elseif/else encodes structural privilege; replaced with
* check/recheck/unpack to encourage greater mindfulness
