I'd say there are other groups less "affected" than that one. In the "Privilege Olympics" there are many contenders.

The question here is about identity vs identification, and of the interests and independence of users vs service providers. Perhaps there are even implications for surveillance & mass control. But I think it's a stretch to characterize this primarily as a question of discrimination and diversity.
