Are we going to list every possible choice human beings can take in
their own lives and list them? If so, we'll need a much bigger
Internet to hold our small web page.

And why some topics have more nuances than others? Because that's a
very specific list for a very specific country where people take
everything everyone says literally.

If sexuality and immigration are more important than culture and
education in that one specific country, why would such an
international community guidelines have to carry that bias?

So, we can either solve it by removing the whole phrase starting with
"This includes, but is not limited to", or we can list every possible
discrimination that has ever happened and could ever happen in the
future. I vote for the former solution throughout the document. We're
not children nor lawyers.
