That's whataboutism.

The bot did ask you to add a news entry. According to https://devguide.python.org/triaging/#github-labels-for-prs the "skip news" label should only be used in trivial cases like fixing a typo.

I find your choice of words hurtful and it demeaning.

Other core developer go through great length to keep backwards compatibility for older or less commonly used systems. In bpo-40810 Erlend researched SQLite version numbers before support for support for ancient SQLite was dropped. I'm spending a considerable effort to keep Python working with unsupported but still widely used OpenSSL and LibreSSL versions.
