This is a solution good enough for me.

Boost is, and should continue to be, entirely inclusive, gender-blind and,

If tolerance is an end (and not a means), why label “aggressive insistence
on so-called...” as offensive? Offensive doesn't matter if you're going to
tolerate everything. Tolerance is a means, not an end.

Particularly, I don't care on “tolerance” fairy tales. Just let everyone
raise their opinions. As long as censorship to “improper language” isn't
enforced the place hasn't fallen into irreversible shit.
