Choosing not to say those words is a political statement.

See the original commit message for the code of conduct: "Explicit
guidelines have demonstrated success in other projects and other areas
of the kernel."

And see the FAQ entry at https://www.contributor-covenant.org/faq for
"The Contributor Covenant explicitly lists a set of protected classes;
does this make it acceptable to discriminate or make others feel
unwelcome based on other factors?" (I wrote that FAQ entry and submitted
it upstream, where it was enthusiastically merged.)
