    pulled the HRs.  But the guy was insulted me from his first comment, and I wasn't even arguing with him.

      if you felt insulted, not my intent, the diary did however deserve insulting. It is  a sorry excuse for a diary and a smear job. No actual research, nothing to support your claim that she is a bad choice other than a single paragraph, that mentions she once upon time worked for Mobil as an engineer and a brief stint in banking. Believe it or not neither of those mean much if you look at her overall resume nor do they automatically disqualify her.

      Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?

        Is to describe the diary rather than the person as "shallow" or whatever.  The former being criticism (and correct in this instance IMO), the latter moving more over to insult.
