    In this case, I agree with you, it won't affect anything. Shoot, it might even give them "cache" in certain markets. But each scenario is individual and while I think saying it doesn't matter is what most people should be thinking, it not always is.

    Side note: I semi-boycott Apple, and have for years, because I don't like the way they do business. I don't like how they always try to wrangle you in to being stuck with only their products, then jack up the prices for their captive market. I'm not the only one, either.
    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.

    Yeah, you did need to be "lectured" because your response to Redress had a context. That context was Redress' response to Bob Blaylock where Bob was singling out gays for "flaunting".

    If you really feel the way you say, why not respond to Bob, instead? Something like, "hey Bob, I really don't think its gays in particular that should avoid flaunting their sexuality, it's everyone who engages in foreplay on a park bench". You responding to Redress is actually an irrelevant post which nevertheless blunts the persuasiveness of his point that Bob is singling out gays.

    So, I will probably "lecture" every time I see it happen, if I also happen to have the zeal to respond.

    And now there is 1 semi open gay CEO in Tim Cook.

    Are you thinking that Apple will oust him because someone outed him?
    If the results turn sour and they have been showing that of late, then yes it could be an excuse to get rid of him.. not the public excuse of course.

    My point is, being a CEO is a white male heterosexual boys club, and there has to be a reason for that no?

    Go right ahead - it only points out repeatedly the ignorance of your posts and affects me not one bit.

    I don't understand how my pointing out the ignorance of your posts works out in your mind to the ignorance of my posts, but you go right on.

    You are the one who brought up the idea of the ignorance of posts, not me. If there is any trolling going on, it would be you.
