Bondage and Discipline Languages

Partisans of permissive languages ridicule the other sort as “B&D” (bondage and discipline) languages, with the rather impudent implication that those who like to program in them are bottoms. I don’t know what the other side call languages like Perl. Perhaps they are not the sort of people to make up amusing names for the opposition.
