"Free Software should empower everyone. As such, correcting the biases, conscious or not, that have led to the poor #diversity of our communities, must be part of our mission."

What @Shamar says. Both may be worthy goals but those are different battles. Fight them both if you want, but in different armies.

I think that diversity in free software community is an important value, because different cultures might lead to different experiments and to learn different things, as there are different curiosities at work.

But such different explorations are often better served by hard forks, not by imposing to a community the culture of a subgroup (eg the US workplace hypocrisy, as CoCs do).

If you think a new Linux syscall might help, say, blinds, please code it!

@Shamar I have never heard a decent definition of "SJW". To me, being concerned about hacking is similar to be concerned about social justice.
