Recently there has been some news about a supposed astronaut love triangle involving astronauts Liza Nowek and WIlliam Oefelein. The jist of the story is that Liza found an email from Williams other girlfriend, and proceeded with a 900-mile roadtrip in order to confront her about it. But let's leave the rumors and gossip alone and focus on the main issue here. Here is a link to an article about the story:
It just seems that this story, which is really a non-story, got blown way out of proportion just because the astronaut in question is a woman. Just because she is a woman, her action to go confront this girl was viewed as emotional, and irrational. If it had been a man, it wouldn't have been a big deal, and would have remained a non-issue. This is really a private matter that needs to be worked out between the three of them, and not a national news story.
