So true.

For example, as is stated in:

	5. Nondiscrimination
	IETF LLC recognizes the right of all persons—including Board
	Directors, employees, contractors and volunteers—to equal
	opportunity. No Covered Individual shall discriminate against
	or treat any person with whom they deal unequally because of
	race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual
	orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age,
	marital status, religion, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry
	or any other status protected by applicable laws.

all the IETF participants are required to respect marital status
between not only same sex but also a man and a or four nine years
old women, as long as such marriage is a status "protected by
applicable laws".

That is the inclusiveness required for international organizations.

My wife was not 9 but far above 20 years old, when I married her.
