If you're "not saying that the person doesn't deserve it", how can you "notice he has appointed a few people to declare himself the first". That's completely ridiculous.

How so? In what way is this person not qualified? Please be detailed.

Pretending that a person's sexuality is not controversial is embarrassing. If that we're the case, DADT wouldn't still be an issuse and you and other homophobes wouldn't be so obviously upset.

Only *****s give a crap about this and could care less about anything else as long as the person appointed is a *****. Golly, you don't think this had anything to do with barry trying to secure the ***** vote, do you??

Apparently she brings no other outstanding credentials.

How sad that your greatest accomplishment or reason for promotion is based on who you choose to sleep with, or that you're a member of a protected class (gay).
Agreed. I think it is shameful that the OP touts her sexuality and mentions nothing abouth her credentials.

I personally don't care what her sexual preferences are. If she's the best for the job that's great. Unfortunately this is just pandering for the vote of the gay community (whatever that is) and what's even more disturbing is that instead of being insulted, many gays are just lapping it up.
