This Really Burns My Balls

Excuse the expression but, this really burns my balls. What burns my balls you ask? Well, for starters, women like Debrahlee Lorenzana who claim they were fired because of their good looks. Why bother putting this all over the news? I don't know if her lawsuit against Citigroup has merit but I do know there's a difference between properly fitted clothes and clothes so tight you can't even breathe. "Boohoo I'm too pretty." If she's qualified I bet you she'll find another job faster than the ugly girl finds one. Don't think so? Keep reading.

These days classified ads for jobs sometimes even include being "pretty" as a qualification. I've even seen ads that require a picture with a resume and please note, these are administrative positions - not modeling gigs. When is that going to be on the news? 

I was browsing through job ads today and the following ad made me want to smack my computer. You can also view it by clicking here.

It's hard enough finding a job with the economic state the country is currently in, now you have to be "pretty" to get hired? I thought intelligence and work ethic would suffice. Apparently those things aren't that important. 

Oh - and just to cover my booty: I am in no way advising anyone to contact or harass the creator of this Craigslist ad.

Wow that really sucks!! I heard some girls talking the other day about a similar topic - the fact that if a man and a woman both go to the same interview, the man is more likely to get the job! It's ridiculous!!

Yea it's been pretty rough finding another job. I work as a production assistant but I need to make more $$ for the wedding. I also need to pay off my student loans. I don't think I'm ugly or anything but I just think it's wrong. I don't even want to apply for jobs like that. It's horrible!
