What do you mean by "did not find any facts"?

This is the part I'm especially curious about:

The great tragedy of RMS's tenure in the supposedly universalist FSF and GNU 
projects is that he behaves in a way that is particularly alienating to women. 
It doesn't take a genius to conclude that if you're personally driving away 
potential collaborators, that's a bad thing for the organization, and actively 
harmful to the organization's goals: software freedom is a cause that is 
explicitly for everyone.

Can you actually refute their claims?
