Did Linus protect the Linux Foundation from the Social Justice Warriors?

The recent news that the Linux Foundation had changed its policy on community representation caught many people by surprise. Most of the first reactions seemed assume that it was done to somehow promote corporate interests over community interests. I even saw some blog that hinted that Microsoft was involved somehow. Talk about conspiracy theories. Sheesh.
But is that really why the policy was changed? Or was it done to avoid an influx of Social Justice Warriors? And in particular one person by the name of Karen Sandler who apparently has a reputation as an SJW, and who may have contributed significantly to the financial problems of the GNOME Foundation by spending oodles of cash on an unnecessary women’s outreach program.
