RUSH: Okay, folks, a little warning. I'm not familiar with this website, MyBankTracker.com. There are so many websites out there, but our show prep knows no boundaries. This outfit is talking about a University of Colorado-Denver study. So that's probably actually the source. The website is MyBankTracker.com. "Some women may be deemed 'too hot to hire' in more masculine workplaces, according to a University of Colorado-Denver study.
"Attractive women are overlooked for certain jobs, including 'manager of research and development, director of finance, mechanical engineer and construction supervisor.' The news service also pointed out other traditionally masculine job categories that were found to discriminate against good-looking women: 'They were also overlooked for categories like director of security, hardware salesperson, prison guard and tow-truck driver.' The study was published in the Journal of Social Psychology."
Now, folks, this is fabulous news for the feminazis. This is what they've been dreaming of. One of primary reasons of feminism... Undeniable Truth of Life Number 24, written by me: "Feminism was established so as to permit unattractive women easier access to the mainstream." Pure and simple. And so here now a story out of the University of Colorado at Denver: Some women are deemed too attractive to hire. Right up their alley.
The thing is, this is discrimination, and it's serious. It is serious. There are women who complain about the fact that they're too attractive. Well, they don't complain about that. They say it's a problem in being hired. "The researchers had a stack of 55 photos of male candidates and 55 photos of female candidates that they handed out to participants. Each participant was given a list of jobs and asked to sort the previously mentioned photos according to suitability for certain positions.
"Researchers found that women who were attractive were ruled out for certain jobs, while men who were attractive were always at an advantage. 'In every other kind of job, attractive women were preferred,' said researcher Stefanie Johnson. 'This wasn’t the case with men which shows that there is still a double standard when it comes to gender.'" Unattractive women were preferred. Who would have ever thought they'd see something like that?
It's just another sign, another sign, folks.
RUSH: Here is Tom from "Can't Say," Tennessee.
CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush. God bless you and yours.
RUSH: Thank you very much. Same to you, sir.
CALLER: Thank you. Hey, I wanted to make a comment about the Denver study on attractive women being discriminated against. As a hiring manager and others like me in my field, we tend to favor older, more experienced, less attractive, not unattractive, but less attractive women because of the risk of sexual harassment accusations from --
RUSH: Oh, man, are you stepping in it. Oh, gee. I'm glad you're the one saying this and not me.
CALLER: Well, it's true. I mean especially, God help you if they're feminists or Democrats.
RUSH: Okay, tell us what an unattractive woman looks like.
RUSH: See what I mean?
CALLER: Well, in my industry looks don't count for much, so it's really an issue of are you at risk for false accusations.
RUSH: So let me guess. You hire an attractive, liberal female, the odds are you got a feminist, you are playing with fire?
CALLER: It's a nightmare waiting to happen. We tend to shy away from that type of hire. We like to play it safer -- (crosstalk)
RUSH: You heard it, folks.
CALLER: -- that we're under.
RUSH: Cutting edge, societal evolution. That's it, that's what we do here.
