I do not understand what you mean by "why not?".

The Debian Members are the most technical part of the Debian Community,
whether you like it or not, it's not my imagination. And these "SJW" you
refer to are Debian Members and henceforth mostly technical contributors
of the project.

I think there is a misunderstanding of English. Either I failed to
express myself correctly or you are failing to understand.

Your opinion is not shared by all developers. Some may agree with your
opinion but obviously some don't.

Despite the many years of contributions you made to Debian, it seems to
me that your understanding of the way the Project works is at odd with the
reality, so I'll try one last time.

The Debian Project will maybe take a political position if the GR
outcomes allows it to do so, and if it does so it will take this
political position on behalf of itself, with the approval of a
"majority" of its voting member having expressed their opinion.

And, being a Free Software-made OS doesn't forbid it to be more than

And using Debian won't mean anything more than before this GR, even if
the project were to tell the FSF that it won't work with it anymore and
considers RMS as someone who should be removed from there.

Because it is our right not to work with people we don't like.

As I said, I wish you the best in your future endeavours which will not
be around Debian, as far as you've stated previously.

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
