You imply she is jealous, upset, or in denial. You make it personal.

You could have simply addressed her on a factual basis, but you decided to turn your response into a personal attack in many ways. Why is that?

You made a neutral point about how software being developed literally couldn't exist without developers and that, therefore, there was a basis for valuing developers more than a manager. You made a rational argument.

That is a very different thing than going after her personally. Which is what you did by calling her jealous and upset and telling her she's in denial. All of these things which are entirely speculative and unarguably insulting.
