Tell me again why a women’s liberation movement is no longer needed.
Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…
“The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]
Are you fucking kidding me.
I just don’t understand this. Why?? How?? What in the world?
funny how a male employer’s decisions ~*~*motivated by feelings*~*~ are totally permissible and even defended in a court of law but god forbid women ever have feelings period let alone make decisions based on them
But when we accuse men of thinking with their dicks like these dicks did then there’s a problem ! I just can’t understand how the loopholes in law and the belief that men can’t control themselves get to influence lives.
The nerve of that dentist though, don’t you have to share a mutual attraction with someone in order for them to want to have any affair with you ?! What the fuck is “because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair” ? She was clearly not showing interest and so she was fired for being pretty.Every woman has gone through this bullshit at one point or another at work.
Anyone else notice how it’s always America with these ridiculously sexist things? So much for land of the free, ha.
