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]

oh let’s ignore the fact that this human being probably wouldn’t consent to the affair her boss wanted to have and let’s focus instead on the fact that it’s easier on the male ego to remove someone from their means of income than to let some nasty pasty fat balding middle aged dude getting rejected and having to think with his brain instead of his dick. the poor guy.

dude like how do you hear this guy’s story and your first impulse ISN’T to require he get psychiatric care to figure out what the hell is problem is??

I don’t want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself. I want to avoid becoming too styled and too ‘done’ and too generic. You see people as they go through their career, and they just become more and more like everyone else.
