If I were a CEO, being "irresistible" would be the easiest way to get hired.

I find it a bit uncomfortable that in a thread about the real world implications of male sexism towards women, we've got guys making remarks, even if they're in jest, about the woman's looks.

All-Male Iowa Supreme Court Rules Firing Of Woman For Being Too Attractive Was Legal

Thank you, all male court, for making it known that there are men who have an irrational fear of women, and aren't willing to take responsibility of that.

How can it be permissible? She compromised his principle.

I'm not surprised that this sort of thing happens.

The trend is irreversible

Knight and his wife believed that his attraction to Nelson – two decades younger than the dentist – had become a threat to their marriage.
I wouldn't be surprised if the wife was the one who was more concerned about the other girl than he was.

My mom told me she used to work at a hotel years ago when she was young, and the owner had a bit of a crush on her. She didn't let it become anything else, but she did enjoy a little preferential treatment. But she eventually got fired, and she says it's because his wife knew and made him do it.

In her boss's defense, she shouldn't have been dressing like a slut, etc. Women need to take a good look at themselves before they leave the house and question whether or not they look like they're asking for it.

So many men in this country have lost their wives to such harlots. Or worse, went to prison for some sort of harassment.
