Quite does actually for anyone who has been on the Internet for the past 20 years and watched over the social development.

As stated in my earlier post, there are issues which occur here:
https://github.com/CoralineAda/contributor_covenant/commit/0e927bc01614d6b0de021a314dbe95e7dfcc7bb9

Let me quote:
"-		<p>Part of this problem lies with the projects themselves. Insensitive language, thoughtless use of pronouns, projects with sexualized or culturally inappropriate names, and side effects of the pervasive cult of meritocracy make contributing to open source a daunting prospect for many people.</p>
"

Let me start to say this is indicative of personality issues when one has to bash on merit based involvement, which I've seen quite a bit over the past decade from the transgender community. These sort of issues necessarily prevalent in the feminist community though does occur from time to time.

I couldn't give a shit what sex, gender identity or <insert thing here>. What I care about is if people can do the work, regardless if they're being paid perform work or not. The majority of people pride themselves on what they can do for a project and go up the ladder.

Let's have a hypothetical scenario here. If there was a job promotion and the selection was based on two candidates a person who is transgender individual and a person who is CIS male. The transgender individual doesn't push as much progress and abilities aren't as progressed as the CIS male. However due to politics regarding the attack of meritocracy, based on performance, the transgender individual is selected for a promotion instead of the person who is best suited for the job.

This is exactly what I'm against, even as a bisexual Hispanic. This is what the majority of people DO NOT want, even through you're pushing your political agenda on projects which will end up biting the core committers in the ass.

Misc #12004: Code of Conduct

I am the creator of the Contributor Covenant, a code of conduct for Open Source projects. At last count there are over 13,000 projects on Github that have adopted it. This past year saw adoption of Contributor Covenant by a lot of very large, very visible projects, including Rails, Github's Atom text editor, Angular JS, bundler, curl, diaspora, discourse, Eclipse, rspec, shoes, and rvm. The bundler team made code of conduct integration an option in the gem creation workflow, putting it on par with license selection. Many open source language communities have already adopted the code of conduct, including Elixir, Mono, the .NET foundation, F#, and Apple's Swift. RubyTogether also adopted a policy to only fund Ruby projects that had a solid code of conduct in place.

Right now in the PHP community there is a healthy debate about adopting the Contributor Covenant. Since it came from and has been so widely adopted by the Ruby community at large, I think it's time that we consider adopting it for the core Ruby language as well.

Our community prides itself on niceness. What a code of conduct does is define what we mean by nice. It states clearly that we value openness, courtesy, and compassion. That we care about and want contributions from people who may be different from us. That we pledge to respect all contributors regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or other factors. And it makes it clear that we are prepared to follow through on these values with action when and if an incident arises.

I'm asking that we join with the larger Ruby community in supporting the adoption of the Contributor Covenant for the Ruby language. I think that this will be an important step forward and will ensure the continued welcoming and supportive environment around Ruby. You can read the full text of the Contributor Covenant at http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/3/0/ and learn more at http://contributor-covenant.org/. 

Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
