If someone want to use systemd they can go right ahead. That is their right and I would not dare to suppress that right or insult them for exercising it. But when systemd proponents start pressuring other distros to get on board and ridiculing those who say no and throwing baseless ad-hominem attacks at their users who don't want it, that is exactly what they are doing - trying to suppress those users' rights and insulting them for exercising it and turning FOSS into quite a sick place to be in. As awesome as systemd might be, the community and politics around it disgusts me and I want no part of it.
I'm sure this might seem like a flamebait post to some but it has been my experience and I think both sides of 'the debate' need to take a step back and recall that we're all in this together so lets stop trashing each other and pushing agendas and come to a mutually agreeable compatible outcome instead of acting like religious extremists.
