If you want to dictate to the original poster the correct way to do
things then you don't need to do anything more that.  You don't need to
pretend like Chris Angelico that there's isn't a direct mapping from
the his Python 3 implementation's internal respresentation of strings
to bytes in order to label what he's asking for as being "silly".
