Bonnie, my whole point is that Angyson isn't holding beauty contests for his MALE employees. The men in his company can be ugly as toads because it's their competence that really matters to him.

It's called sexism, Bonnie! If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck . . .


Are you sure? He might be holding beauty contests for them too but didn't want to share that with us! ROFLMAO...

Perhaps "people" SHOULD be hired on the basis of their looks and paid with a signup bonus, as beauty is fleeting... Is it sexism if equally applied to both genders?

I for one would love to see the return of the good part of the feminist movement of the 60's with bra burning and freelove!

And yes, that was all sarcasm, well except for the free love part! If flashbacks were only as frequent as they said they would be... LOL ;o)

Many of you ladies are not aware of the backlash created by feminists to your relationships. It started with equal pay for equal work, which I support.

Politically incorrect according to which political party?



If both sexes are equally competent in their intellect and ability to perform the job on equal pay..then is it fair if the employer picks the better looking one or one with a more attractive personality or fantastic EQ...male or female?

It is a bit like going to the supermart to pick the various brands of washing detergent that are on the shelves ..and if they are all the same price how would you choose..if you choose one that has better packaging and gimmicky advert that strikes your attention..are you discriminating the other brands or are you just falling for your own choice..Is choice seen as discriminatory or politically incorrect if we choose a better packaging and fall for the exterior too if the interior content is about the same?? What constitutes freedom of choice if we are considered politically incorrect if we chose one against the other on pure exterior packaging given the content is about the same and they all do the job just as well..do we need to redefine the constitution?
I used to work for an international bank with 80% of the middle to top management comprising efficient and extraordinarily beautiful women, they get through the doors of their male clients easily and get their target deals done at full speed..you bet our competitors were green with envy and had lots to bicker about..but can we blame the bank for doing what is the obvious? Discrimination or just plain savvy with their choice?

REcently Betty Friedan, one of the staunchiest stalwart of Feminism in the 60s made a very poignant comment.

To paraphrase her words, she felt that the New Woman of the 22nd century now enjoys the fruit of her predecessors' fight for equality on all fronts from the right to vote to equal education , pay ..now that she enjoys all the same opportunities as her counteparts..she has the choice to do as she pleases, to marry up or down and to stay home or work or do both..but whatever her choice maybe ..her counterparts, especially her female sisters ought to respect her for her choice.. the women who choose to stay home and devote her time to the family have to be respected by all , especially the breed of superwomen who often despise them for not having a career..and forget that running a home and mothering is the toughest job that any woman or man could ever take on..so earning RESPECT for each others' choices is the all important agenda in this gender game today..

The corporate glass ceiling is increasingly no longer determined by the men but women themselves. I come from a country which gave women equal opportunities far more readily than even the west, and with the help of abundant cheap domestic help and the extended Asian family concept, women were able to pursue their careers and have cohesive families and happy marriages, and yet with all their wish lists answered,a lot of women themselves in the professions have chosen not to climb the corporate ladder when the oppportunities present themselves..strangely their maternal instincts take over in that equal playing field..why?

Left to our own device and absolute free choice, strangely women still believe after achieving all they could in their career path..many feel that they don't really want to be that ambitious because the price they need to pay is too high, they reassess their priorities and will admit that time with family is far more precious than time devoted to an artificial corporation.
Creating a happy home and family life is as vital a goal as running a high powered successful corporation, the former in the long run is far more enriching and rewarding, after all who remembers your achievements long after you leave a souless corporation but your family members will certainly remember you long after you die..the skills of human resource management in a corporation or a family are the same., hence women make great organisers and corporate leaders given the same opportunities...a better family unit breed happy children for the future and a better community and country...so says Confucius 2000 years ago..have we not come a full circle in life's never ending evolution?

Should men then be given the equal opportunity to be stay- at- home house husbands for those who are inclined? >Quite a few have in my country and the wives are the breadwinners and have proven that it could work..so Equal opportunity is now available too for men who want to wear the apron..and we should respect them for that too..should we not?

I thought "the boys club" and feminism were to be replaced with the concept of diversity.

Unless your job is specifically about looks, such as being a playboy bunny or a chippendale dancer, it has little to with hiring requirements.

Welcome to the 21st century, we are so glad you could attend...

the gendertraining website is an excellent reference
