i think some of the problem here is that the monks on the opposition side of the fence, whether it be true or not, come off looking sexist, old fashioned,and at best less than progressive and this leads some to rush in and defend these monks against what they perceive to be attacks.
still this is no reason to be disrespectful of Ajahn Brahm and Ajahn Sujato.
i think it is a bit funny that the thai forest tradition which is not known for its strict interpretation of classical theravada (rejection of abhidhamma, and other unorthadox thinking here and there) is trying to pull the hard line orthodox card here.
and as to the timing, one could easily just state the old civil rights mantra "a dream deferred is a dream denied"
