Subject[PATCH v3] code-of-conduct: Remove explicit list of discrimination factors
Providing an explicit list of discrimination factors may give the false
impression that discrimination based on other unlisted factors would be

Furthermore, this list is already overly long, polarizing,
politically-laden, and reinstating the concept of human races.
None of these is related to the goals of the Linux kernel project.

Avoid any ambiguity or political undertone by removing the list, to
ensure "a harassment-free experience for everyone", period.
