My personal interpretation of this list is that it is for discussions that
are potentially interesting to haskell programmers for one of several
reasons, including but not limited to a) it's about haskell; Or, b) it's
about the haskell community.

I would say that this discussion is quite beneficial to the latter category.
 One of the things that makes Haskell special to me is how thoughtful and
inclusive the community was when I discovered it.  I would love it see it
become more gender inclusive also.

And as Luke Palmer suggests, perhaps you can ignore/filter these discussions
that you do not enjoy :)
