There is outrage because Appleinsider is an Apple gadget site, this crap isn't about gadgets at all. Frankly it is diving into peoples personal lives for no good reason. It is objectionable in the same way that diving into Steves health issues is objectionable. Of course many don't see the ugliness of that either, to which we can credit to being brought up in leftist households.
Apple's leadership is of profound interest to anyone interested in the company. Everyone interested in Apple is very interested in who might one day replace Jobs. You seem hung up on one aspect of the profile on Cook, and from your comments this appears to be because you hate gays. That's your problem, not one for AI, Apple, Cook, or gays.
I would certainly hope so, but I don't understand the connection between wild sex at Apple and Cook being profiled as next in line at Apple.
Only a bigot could say that the president who stood up to nothing but months of lock step partisan obstructionism by nearly every individual Republican, and still passed item after item in his promised agenda, is not strong and competent. Even if you are politically opposed to Obama's interests, you can't deny that he has done more, in more difficult environment, that any recent president. Bush had the Democrats fall in line under war hysteria (minor stated accomplishments, easy circumstances), Clinton accomplished little of his stated agenda (minor stated accomplishments, difficult circumstances).
If Obama hadn't accomplished so much, the current Republican majority in the House wouldn't be symbolically voting to undo things they lack the power to actually undo, just to be ineffectual and weak in a pretense of being strong and powerful.
Referring to people you have been taught to hate as "defective" is simply ignorant. Nobody with an education considers people who fall outside of religiously defined gender role stereotypes to be "defective." I would say your opinion is defective. And how exactly should one "treat lepers"? With disgust and hate, like the middle ages, or with medical care, like liberal intellectuals would? (And I assume you mean leper, as in someone with leprosy, as opposed to "leapers," somebody who jumps.)
There is no discussion of Cook's "sex life" in the article. It's pretty commonly known among people who are gay who other gays are. It's only a source of shame and fear among people who cultivate shame and fear in their communities. Humans are naturally interested in other's gender and role identity, which is why there's nothing shameful or scary about Valentine's Day. It's not about "sex life," it's about identity and relationships, very positive things.
I imagine you're rather old, but it's not too late to let go of hate and prejudice and simply accept other people for who they are.
