    No need to lecture me - I've never said anything remotely connected to what you're implying of me above.

    I believe public flaunting of sexuality - BY ANYONE - is classless, period.

    I agree. I don't know who that asshole is who did that, but he was very wrong. Just like he would have been wrong to say "The CEO of Exxon Mobil likes his wife to tie him up and make him lick her feet." When did people's bedroom preferences become a matter of public knowledge?

    Agreed.

    Though I am still patiently waiting for my iMate...an Apple, robotic mate.

    She will be cool, easy to 'use', difficult to modify and ridiculously expensive.

    I will call her Pooky.

    Hope not, but you never know, stranger things have happened. There must be a reason he and most CEOs who are gay, have kept it a secret for now.. The CEO business is a very big "old boys club" where women and minorities have a damn hard time getting access too.

    At that point you have to decide, do you stand on principle, or is it only about the money?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    There are minority and female CEOs.

    Are you thinking that Apple will oust him because someone outed him?

    Boycotts can happen, but I don't know who would boycott Apple, or why, in any meaningful way that it will impact their stock. As long as they keep putting out products that people buy, they will hopefully continue to do well financially.
