I comment on a comment on the Sullivan & Cromwell story

The story is fascinating, and this NYTimes Blog has links to more information. It's the first poster's comments that I find infuriating. Or maybe I just misunderstand them.

The first comment notes that "His private life should be kept private and not made an issue of in the work place. He is the one who behaved inappropriately and for some reason he thinks it’s his employers job to keep him happy."

As I said in my response, "Does that mean no family photos on the desk? No pictures of loved ones, or even friends? No wedding bands? No mention of leaving work early to pick up your kids, to meet your wife, or to have a hot date? Or is it only non-heterosexuals that need to keep their private life private?"
