Technology is political. If your project or organisation has a “no politics” clause, you’re saying you’re happy to exclude people whose very existence is political in our societies. It’s only defensible if you’re coming from a place of privilege where the dominant politics are to your advantage so you can take them as given. There is no such thing as “no politics”; there is only “no politics other than the politics of the status quo that I benefit from, which I’ve internalised as normal.”
