What's wrong with the following?

"I appreciate your input regarding ideological and polititcal diversity in the nominees. As you know, assessing political ideology as either liberal or conservative can be rather subjective territory. We identify and evaluate nominees based on how well they might complement our work to end sexism and other forms of discrimination on campus. Conservative perspectives on issues of gender tend to have the preservation or recentering of traditional family values at their core in ways which directly (or indirectly) bolster sexist attitudes and behaviors. For this reason we seldom find a good Visionary candidate who one might label "conservative" to be appropriate as a nominee." [sic]
