Thanks for your elaboration.
On my end, I'll try to succinctly justify the points you quoted from the post.
First, you said the kid example is "irrelevant" (a).
Well, I did mention that because I've never seen such cases with respect to any programming language except Python (b).
(a) : Python users - 1 / Python users.
(b) : NonPython users / NonPython users.
=> (b) > (a)
Second, Yeah, perhaps it's the developers' fault. But again here, when I compare "straight C" developers with "straight Python" developers, "straight C" developers tend to manipulate code better even if they are working on a Python code.
Finally, I agree with you that programming languages are just tools. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Hope that makes sense,
