I really think that you should try to calm down a bit and not taking
this so personally. I understand that you can feel hurt and offended,
and I guess thar probably the difference of cultures is working here
too. Some cultures tend to be more assertive and direct than others,
and it takes time to get used to it. I personally thank Lesley for
being so clear and straightforward, because sometimes trying to be too
politically correct only makes this kind of discussions endless.

Please, keep in mind that some of the people here prefering a woman
for doing this task, and having technology preferences -in this case
with the goal of have a technological synergy with the main Debian
site- is nothing personal against your boyfriend.
