It was about a solution to women not being comfortable on WP due to
bias. Whether that solution is a good one or not was /not/ being
addressed. There has already been a thread about bias in general. that
is where the idea of the list arose.

I didn't dismiss it. That's what "firmly on the fence" means - that I do
not support nor oppose it, and am still considering the concept. And I
have yet to see any reason why it would not help. I have reasons why it
would, and I have seen concerns that it might hurt the project in other
ways, but I have not seen any reason given that it would not help.
