The issue is not about what offends standards of public decency, molly 
coddled people or political correctness gone mad. The problem is making 
everyone feel welcome and part of an inclusive event. LA promised an 
environment where people would be free from a whole range of things that 
are known to have made attendees feel unwelcome or uncomfortable in the 
past and then failed to deliver on the promise.
