It's fairly obvious now, the Pharo leadership is occupied by left wing progressives who are intent on bringing identity politics into the community. While the new CoC is vastly better in its current state, it still insists one the left wing political ideology of respecting people's chosen identities as if that has any bearing at all on anything.

* One's identity is not relevant in a technical forum.
* One's code is not better because of one's identity.
* One's arguments are not more sound because of one's identity.
* Ones point of view are not more important because of one's identity.

Any calls to respect someone's identity are thinly veiled attempts to impose objectionable left wing political language onto the community. I don't care how anyone identifies, but I'm under no obligation to play along and it is not disrespectful to disagree with these political beliefs. The maintenance of ones identity and self image is theirs to worry about, I have no obligation to support the maintenance of someone else's ego. You can identify as a pink unicorn for all I care, but no I do not have to respect that or play along.  Nor will I.

I'm saying this here because the pull request to remove the word identity was rejected without explanation, discussion, or comment. Progressives seem intent on ruining everything.
