Can You Be Too Atractive?

Recently I did a post and made fun of the Saudis because the “religious police” arrested a couple of men for being too handsome…their reasoning was that their looks would entice women too easily……I said then and stand by my statement that it is an absurdity that their is a crime of being too handsome……..

But wait!  what is the old saying?  “Whatever you can do, we can do it better”……….Iowa has proven this statement……Think Progress has brought this to light…..

Standing by a December decision, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday that a male dentist who fired a female assistant because she was too attractive and threatened his marriage did not commit sex discrimination.

The all-male court ruled against Melissa Nelson, who sued her former employer James Knight, alleging Knight’s wife told Knight to fire Nelson because “she was a big threat to our marriage.” Knight fired Nelson in January 2010 after more than 10 years working for him, later testifying that she was not fired for performance reasons.

The Court wrote:

“It is abundantly clear that a woman does not lose the protection of our laws prohibiting sex discrimination just because her employer becomes sexually attracted to her, and the employer’s attraction then becomes the reason for terminating the woman once it, in some way, becomes a problem for the employer. If a woman is terminated based on stereotypes related to the characteristics of her gender, including attributes of attractiveness, the termination would amount to sex discrimination because the reason for termination would be motivated by the particular gender attribute at issue.”

Can you believe the bullsh*t?

  1. Speaks volumes to the employer’s character and represents the notion that most men’s brains often lie in their penis’. But then would DaVinci, Copernicus and Rousseau have succeeded as well as they did if they weren’t engaging in some form of illicit fornicating? ;-)
