The code of conducts intent is to force identity politics into technical spaces in the name of social justice and to make someone feeling offended an actionable reason to go after the supposed offender; never mind that offense is taken rather than given. Nevermind that anyone can claim to be offended by just about anything. The goal is to get the project to agree to kick people out for violating the utterly vague and subjective rules.

Here's some more quotes from the author of said code of conduct.

"Some people are saying that the Contributor Covenant is a political document, and they’re right."

"I can’t wait for the mass exodus from Linux now that it’s been infiltrated by SJWs. Hahahah"

"Meritocracy is just thinly veiled misogyny and white supremacy propping up fragile cis het white men's egos"

"Meritocracy is late stage patriarchy"

"Why didn’t anyone punch the reporter giving the nazi air time?"

He is a radical left transgender activist, his intentions are purely political, the CoC is merely a means to an end and is used by him to setup situations in which he can cancel people in this new cancel culture. He wants to replace meritocracy with identity politics. This is the CoC that ran Linus out of Linux, a massive loss to the OS community.  This is not a horse you want to hitch your wagon to Pharo.
