Once again it is the weekend and my few days of mental relaxation….and since it is Sunday I found some stuff that makes one just shudder….
Women for decades have been trying to lose the stigma of “tight sweater” means better work conditions….sort of thing….but it seems that in China they have some pretty stringent qualifications that they look for in some of their spokespeople……
Even foreign firms have been known to advertise for specific ages, looks and genders, particularly when seeking good-looking women to fill posts. Job descriptions here routinely have height and weight requirements, and those deemed not beautiful enough can be turned away with no recourse.
But the Ministry of Tofu blog reports on one case that might be over-the-top even for China: a company seeking large-breasted virgins for a tea-picking ad.
The requirements: “A prospective employee has to be a woman with no sexual experience, has a bra size of at least C, and has no scar or wound visible on her body with a uniform.”
I say…try that in the good old USA and see just how far that flies……but on a more realistic note…is that not the perfect woman that most men look for? Big breasts and a virgin? I know that sounds like misogyny and it may well be….but the truth is the truth……whether we like it or not. But to say that they are qualifications for a photo ad is just plain….obscene!
