Is CSS a programming language? Who the f*ck cares!

Another day, another turd on Twitter telling people they can’t call themselves a programmer if they “only” know HTML and CSS.

Here’s the thing, CSS is a programming language.

All the arguments that it’s not fell apart ages ago. CSS can hold variables. It can interact with user inputs. You can build (inaccessible) apps and videos games entirely with HTML and CSS.

But even if that weren’t true, I don’t give a single shit what makes something a “real programming language.”

That debate has just one purpose: to gatekeep people. Just stop.
