Was simply a response to your statement.

I completely agree with this statement ...

and that's exactly what this part(*) of my reply meant :

In other words (since I think some people seem to be having trouble parsing my 
reply) my take on the whole thing was:

a. LGTB issues were completely unrelated to anything in a Fedora event.
b. Even if we were to stretch our imagination to include this, it would've been 
more sensible to focus on Women in Tech or for that matter LGTB in tech.

(*) why are relevant parts of my reply being snipped in responses ? It 
completely distorts the context !!
