Intersting that only point six refers to gender. The others seem like sensible ideas that can be embraced without any discussion or reference to feminism.

I agree. I think they include items other than #6 to distance themselves from "fundamentalists" in the mainstream. See, e.g.

Also to align themselves with others who, like them, want to differentiate themselves from "fundamentalists."


#1 is not an economic principle, #6 I don't understand, and the second part of #7 can be read as a religious/supernatural statement that the mainstream would object to. All the others are mainstream.

#9 is as true as "you can fall from the tenth floor, survive the impact and get a generous deal to write a book on your experience." You can.
