    Fired for being "irresistibly attractive"

    A dentist in Iowa City fired his dental assistant for being too hot and threatening his marriage. This made news because the Iowa Supreme Court found the firing was legal and not sexual discrimination. However, that's not the news story to me. What's news is this is what passes for "irresistibly attractive" in Iowa City! In the land of the blind, the one eyed woman is queen!

    Lots of fail here...

    - court ruling
    - article states Iowa City dentist, it's actually Ft. Dodge
    - this has nothing to do with Iowa City, Hawks or the blind

    Re: Fired for being "irresistibly attractive"

    As discussed in another thread, it was the right decision. Iowa is an at-will employment state, meaning you can be fired for any reason except discrimination. She clearly wasn't discriminated against based on gender since all of her co-workers including her replacement are female.

    Whatever floats your boat. She's decent looking. I can't even say who I would call "irresistibly attractive", but she isn't it. Maybe she has a great personality.

    She's Ft dodge cute - not "hot" by my definition. In other words, I will not go out of my way to mentally picture her while I, hhmmmm, take care of my personal area....

    Yeah, I think this is only becoming a story because the guy made a big deal of letting her go. Legally it really has nothing to do with how she looked, only that she wasn't discriminated against under the law.

    The court ruling is right. Iowa is an at-will employment state. You can fire anyone for anything. The dentist would of been better off just saying "you're fired" and not giving a reason.
