Look, I just thought it sounded like anti-female bias. I would've reacted very differently had you provided the Joan of Arc examples at the beginning. So sorry if I was upset with your wording, but I still think your first statement should have been worded differently. To further explain why I was so upset, I would point to your Napoleon picture examples. You were saying her posing looked "too feminine" and then said you didn't reject feminine authority. I would have been more convinced had you used Joan of Arc as your examples. My criticism was related to the idea that when you said "commanding aura" you really implied "masculinity". Thus when I saw your Napoleon examples I thought it was unfair to compare Leo to a professional but also upset me in that I thought it proved what I had alleged earlier.
Eventually though my temper at what I thought was unjust bias implied in the criticism broke, so apologies on my temper, but it seemed for awhile that underneath your constructive criticism was a veiled bias against females.
