That's a nice straw man.  Shame it seems to block the view of some.

We *already* use the trademark licences to discriminate against some
$whatever-doesnt-fit-world-view-of-someone - review the DCC or debian
labs threads for some examples.  Why not use the trademark to assure
that debian-label clothing meets basic ethical trading standards?

If some want to go fully one way or the other and either close the
debian trademark down completely, or open the trademark to completely
non-discriminatory use, then I respect those views, but that doesn't
seem to have been suggested.

Hope that explains,
