Yes, I accept those criticisms of my statements :-) and I agree better
wording is needed.

My main point in this thread has been to distinguish automatic respect
for people from automatic respect for the opinions they hold (yes to the
former, no to the latter).

I'm glad to see that point is relatively uncontroversial; I'll consider
this addressed so long as that is clear in whatever diversity statement
