But honestly, if somebody gets upset from including a symbol like that
then it really is their own fault. It's incredible how people want to
omit stuff because somebody potentially could get upset even if there
was no real reason for anybody to get upset. Sensitivity is one thing
and paranoia or fascistic politically correctness are another thing.
