    Whether or not it fits a technical definition of the word "insubordination" is not really the point. Either way, you messed up by saying what you said. Your best course of action now would be to apologize sincerely for losing your cool and try to build a positive relationship -- a relationship that could then be used to help you resolve your issues.

    If you get into a fight with her about the dictionary definition of the word "insubordination," it will only make matters worse. You were impolite, disrespectful, and unprofessional in your communication. Admit to that and try to put it behind you as quickly as possible and move forward in a positive direction. Highlighting it and dragging it out by nit-picking word definitions only keeps the conversation focused on your unprofessional communication -- which is not where you want the focus to be.
