It was reasons like this that led Red Hat to remove fortune-mod in the 
first place.  It is just a complete waste of time spinning cycles to 
deal with political correctness when there are 5 billion uncontroversial 
real issues to fix.

Free software!  Open Source!  No patent encumberance!  No problem?  Do 
we also want to waste time discussing if we want to allow GPL 
pornographic software in Fedora?

I suppose we need written policies about (possibly) offensive content so 
we don't repeatedly waste time arguing about this.
