Iowa courts have made the decision that being fired for being too attractive doesn’t break discrimination laws. This came up because dental assistant Melissa Nelson was fired for being “irresistible” to her boss.
Because this story is hilarious I immediately hit social media sites, in disguise, to see what the reaction was. Most men had the same reaction I did, which was one of “she’s not that hot”. Most women had the reaction of “this is unfair” “men are so horrible” blah blah blah blah blah and so on.
While I agree the decision is unfair to her, it should be viewed as a victory for society at large. This is one of few instances I can think of where a hot chick is penalized in any way. Attractive chicks benefit from their looks subtly, but persistently, in life. Because of that, women should view this as a huge victory at least if they are in the 1-7 range.
Besides none of us like the idea of our dentist having a boner.
