Parent article: Debian's diversity statement
(a) It's obviously false -- Debian doesn't (at least intentionally) welcome people who are are jerks to everyone.
Hence the qualification as long as they interact constructively with our community which is pretty reasonable.
If a woman complained about that, there's a big difference between having a policy that says "we welcome everyone" and one that says "hostile behavior to women is not ok"
The "Hostile behavior to women is not ok" statement does not belong in a diversity statement. Rather, it belongs in a code of conduct that prohibits hostile behavior to anyone, sexism, racism, etc, etc.
