Thanks Stefano. My thoughts exactly.

Further, I will be voting on this GR with the same set of worries I have
whenever I post to Debian lists.  I signed the letter with that same set
of worries. I would not be surprised in the least if I found out that a
large proportion of other women and non-binary Debian contributors feel
the same way.  Painting this as either novel or unique to those who
object to Debian making a statement seems disingenuous.
