No, I don't think that.

Perhaps you think that, but if that is the case, it is based on your own 
sociocultural background. Hey, and let's not forget that supposedly 8% or so of 
all males are red-green blind... ;-)

No. You (well, everybody) should just take a deep breath, step back, and ask 
yourself "Does this really matter that much to me and the rest of the world? Is 
it worth keeping up another long drawn discussion? Is there perhaps a chance 
for a compromise?"

Of course it is completely up to each individual to decide this! Power to you!

In the meantime, I'll watch from the sidelines, eat my popcorn, enjoy the show, 
and keep on not using a git logo for anything, indefinitely :-).

Of course! That's why I marked it as only being an example.

Indeed. And many shades of red, blue, etc., and let's not forget about stripes, 
dots, and other patterns. So many possibilities! Oh, and can I get mine with 
ponies? :-)

I disagree. And I think you again confuse your personal sociocultural 
conditioning with an universal truth. 

In closing, let's not forget that for some things, there just is no "correct" 
solution, and I think the choice of a logo is one of these cases.
