If you're 'irrestible' and female in Iowa, be sure to fug yourself up in the workplace! [laceyunderalls]

So apparently 'irresistible attraction' is now a recognizable defense to gender discrimination in Iowa.

In a 7-0 ruling, the Iowa Supreme Court this week held that an employer can legally terminate an employee seen to be a threat to the employer's marriage. The Court ruled that while it may be seen as unfair it doesn't constitute unlawful discrimination under the Iowa Civil Rights Act because the firing was based on 'emotions'; not gender.

Basically this guy got wood so he shitcanned the female employee. "At-Will" apparently now means 'I-have-no-check-on-my-free-own-will-so-adios'.

This entire opinion seems to be a hotmess and I don't really see any good people in this fiasco. The employer, here a dentist James Knight, fired the dental assistant Melissa Nelson after ten years of employment when she started wearing 'tight clothing'. He said "if his pants were buldging, that was a sign her clothes were too revealing". Oh employment law...

So the morons are off to Bing Melissa Nelson. For anyone left reading, these two people started caring on via text messaging. Knight's wife found out and rightly, wasn't too keen on that phone-time fun. Nelson was 'shocked' when she got her pink slip as she saw Nelson as a 'father figure' and never considered Knight to be anything but a friend.

Apparently they were discussing their personal lives. I'm not sure what kind of woman carries on with a married man (when she herself was married as well) about her sex life (or lack thereof) if she considers him a "father figure'. Ew. Creepy. And more ew.

For what it's worth, this opinion is line with other circuits that have held a boss is well within its rights to fire for relationships that cause jealously, so while it's a case of first impression in Iowa, there is precedent from other circuits.

While this may (or may) seem absurd depending on your take of an employee's 'at-will' employment status, the Court does have a point that Nelson's claim could be a slippery slope - anyone could claim they were wrongfully discharged due to a strained relationship and allege this under the auspices of gender discrimination.

What I do find absurd though is the claim by Knight's attorney -- "While there was really no fault on the part of Mrs. Nelson, it was just as clear the decision to terminate her was not related to the fact that she was a woman."

Um no. But for her gender, she'd still have a job. I agree with the court's rational regarding the unintended consequences, ie, relationships-gone-bad-in-the-workplace-being-used-as-a-guise-to-a-gender-discrimination-claim, but how an attorney can argue, and the court can agree that being female here wasn't the pretext for the firing is beyond me.

The court also said "The civil rights laws seek to insure that employees are treated the same regardless of their sex". It then goes on to say that because Knight hired a woman to fill Nelson's vacancy, the goal of the 'civil rights' law was not 'jeopardized'. So I'm understanding their interpretation, the state's civil rights act isn't violated against Party A as long as Party B (of the same gender) gets the benefit of Party A's job. That's how I'm reading this wonky decision.

You can read the full opinion here (PDF).

Flame away, morons!

18 High Rons and Ronettes - just got back from the hospital. Wednesday, I felt a bit of indigestion during my 5 a.m. workout. Didn]t think much of it since it went away and I finished a hard (45 minute) bike ride with no problems. Went to bible study and then to work to grade exams. All through the day had persistent indigestion. 20 Tums didn't make a dent in it. Although the RightWingWife thought I was overreacting, I'd had enough by 6 and went to the ER. Turns out it was a heart attack. they gave me nitroglycerin, which gave me a Biblical-strength headache. Then they gave me morphine for the headace, which made everything just fine.

Got catheterized and stented next day, and spent two more days in the hospital for observation. AFAIK, there was very little damage to the muscle. So what's the first thing I do when I get back? Check out what's happening with the Moron Nation.

Isn't that the basis for making women wear burkas? ....That men cannot be expected to have any self control?

That said...I don't think it's too much to ask, for employers to ask women to tone it down a bit in what they wear to work.
I mean, come on.
We know what we're doing when we put on revealing outfits that are a distraction to men....that's the idea for wearing them.

There is a place for that, though.

I'll listen to the cardiologist for the most part because if I don't, the wife will make me pay. I need him for tests and meds.

Hey, she wanted to be a Famous Person. Like everything else it has its drawbacks. One of them is that people are going to stare at you when you're in public (even if you look like Rosanne Barr).

That's a different thing from scummy photographers sneaking into a celeb's house or whatever. There they have a right to privacy. In public? Nope.

Lucky you. They went in through my groin artery. When it was time to pull the shunt, or whatever, they sent in the biggest, ugliest nurse in the whole hospital.

She leaned her impressive girth onto my poor tender groin to hold the artery shut until the blood congealed. Hurt worse than the heart attack. I swear, it they sicced her on me, I might surrender and live healthy. Luckily, I think they have her terrorizing the world as Secretary of State, or some such, these days.
I missed four whole days of work due to the heart attack, and I blame her for nearly laming me.

Nurses are evil when you meet them in a hospital. They get paid extra to cause pain.

163 Obama Threatens Boehner: I’ll Use Inaugural Address And State Of The Union Speech To Bash Republicans…



Via WSJ:

. . .Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.

At one point, according to notes taken by a participant, Mr. Boehner told the president, “I put $800 billion [in tax revenue] on the table. What do I get for that?”

“You get nothing,” the president said. “I get that for free.”

What a dick

My humblest apologies, Nevergiveup. I worked with a lot of dentists (was part of 1-800-youknow from the ground up). I just always had this thought of, oh, gack, I would never be able to do that, because people, in general, are just so icky! It's a fine and noble profession, however, and I have great love and respect for my personal dentist.

166 On my side of town there is an endodontist (root canals) that we all call "The Charlie's Angels Dentist." All of his assistants have long hair, pretty features, nice figures, and wear miniskirts, leather pants, etc. They are also quite competent.

He's really good at what he does, and it doesn't bother me. In fact, I find it humorous. He also drives around in a Porsche. (This is Indiana, not California.)

My brother really enjoyed his root canal. :-)

Nope. I agree a man's "got to know his limitations", however, allowing someone to be fired for something as nonsensical as being irresistible is bad law. It would make much more sense to make everything at will employment. Some stupid ruling like this is laying the groundwork for rape defense of she was irresistible / asking for it since she was dressed slutty.

217 According to the article, the wife, who also worked in the office, saw the flirtation and SHE demanded the employee be fired.

And then after they consulted with their pastor, they decided, meaning the wife decided, that it was the right course of action. Of course the dude isn't getting any ass from his ball-breaking wife. And she rightly assumes that HE can't be at fault, because his nuts are firmly in her grasp, and not in a sexy way. These people remind me of my parents. If you're reading this, Dad, I hope you're smashing some 25 year-old ass on the side. Your other son agrees, too.

I hate to repeat myself but nope. logically it is the same thing - you are not responsible for you own behavior / feelings / actions. I do not think it is likely you are going to see a successful defense based on the "she was irresistible" law in rape cases but it is the same as I had to fire her for being irresistible. it is stupid and nonsensical and there are better ways to achieve the result. stupid, nonsensical, subjective, and illogical are not especially good foundations for law - look at the mess we have already.

Posted by: yankeefifth at December 22, 2012 06:37 PM (Z9EHQ)

228 The last time I was looking for a job, about 12 years ago, I noticed a lot of ads saying, basically, "No smokers! If you smoke, we don't want you here. Like, at all. Go work somewhere else if you want to be a poopy smoker, because we won't have your kind working here."

I wasn't thrilled to see that, but I understood that those employers have a right to associate with the sort of people they choose to be around. When that one company fired a woman for being a Kerry supporter in 2004, I understood that, too.

The employer in this case simply chose not to associate with someone who tempted him to cheat on his wife. I feel bad for the gal, but suppose her employer had decided to go the other way and pursue her instead. It'd be an open-and-shut case of sexual harassment.

If the court hadn't ruled the way it did here, there'd be no way out for an employer who felt attracted to an employee.

Posted by: Prothonotary Warbler (@ProthonotaryW) at December 22, 2012 06:38 PM (RLZvP)

229 Um no. But for her gender, she'd still have a job.

Really? Here?

If she were ugly, she'd still have a job. Or if she were old. Does that make this an agism case, too?

Or if she hadn't gotten personal in private communications with a man married to a jealousy-prone wife (who also worked there). I'm guessing that was the direct cause.

This is simple. You flirt with your married boss, the wife finds out, you get fired. He can't fire himself, so she has to go.

If he had made unwanted advances at her and she got fired for rejecting him, she'd have had a case.

264 NDAA Indefinite Detention Provision Mysteriously Stripped From Bill


The provision was replaced with a passage that appears to give citizens little protection from indefinite detention.


The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 was
added by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), but there was no similar
language in the version of the bill that passed the House, and it was
dumped from the final bill released Tuesday after a conference committee
from both chambers worked out a unified measure.


It declared that "An authorization to use military force, a
declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the
detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent
resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless
an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention."

Her husband cheated on her and she started dressing like a hottie and flirting with the dentist/boss to make herself feel OK again. The dentist, being a typical man, was pleased to have attracted the attention of a hottie right up until the bride found out.

He discovered how expensive divorces were and canned the hottie.

*****

Patients come to my office every day seeking reassurance. They want reassurance that their child will not die next week. While I am happy to run the diagnostic tests, and inform them when the tests are normal, some of them are not reassured by that.
I will say to you what I say to them. There is a point of diminishing returns when it comes to trying to predict the future. I could run more tests, but the incremental gain in reassurance becomes less and less with each additional test. How certain do you have to be in order to be reassured?
At some point, you have to accept a measure of uncertainty.Eventually you have to accept the fact that uncertainty is part of life. At that point you have a choice to crawl under the bed in fear or to go out and live your life. Staying in your bedroom 24 hours a day might keep you from getting hit by a bus, but it is a lousy way to live. The choice is yours.

345 That was one of the few positives of going to the orthodontist back in the 70s, when braces were a lot more painful than they are today. Dr. Mays had three smoking hot assistants. If Playboy had done a Girls of Orthodontics pictorial, they would all have been excellent candidates.

346 I was the manager at an adult toy & video store attached to a international chain of strip clubs.

One of the employees on the retail side would *always* be wearing tight ass "I'm going to the club, Lookit Meeeee!" clothing.

I told to knock it off or go get a job at the strip club.

She knocked it off

348 Propinquity (look it up) leads to many affairs that would not have occurred otherwise.

It's why your bf or hubby doesn't want to spending time with any old guy "friends".

It's not anyone's particular fault or weakness, it's just human nature.

Besides, she worked for him for quite a while and things were cool. (literally) When she and he began sharing "I hate my s.o." stories, that's when Mrs. Lawsuit threw the flag on the play.

There's a certain age of the participants and age of their current relationship that can predict the possibilities.

Mid - 30's to 40's and 7 years come to mind.

357 Good.

Anti-discrimination laws are a violation of freedom of association anyway (unless they apply to government entities, which, as government entities, have no rights).

Posted by: Mr. Estrada at December 22, 2012 08:09 PM (5piqN)

358 aclu/ the bill was drafted by Carl Levin. and Mcain

UPDATE I: Don’t be confused by anyone claiming that
the indefinite detention legislation does not apply to American
citizens.

It does.

There is an exemption for American citizens from
the mandatory detention requirement (section 1032 of the bill),

but no
exemption for American citizens from the authorization to use the
military to indefinitely detain people without charge or trial

(section
1031 of the bill).

So, the result is that, under the bill, the
military has the power to indefinitely imprison American citizens, but
it does not have to use its power unless ordered to do so.

362 Obama in fact threatened to veto the bill with that specific language .

Posted by: ette at December 22, 2012 09:35 PM (nqBYe)

363 As outrageous as it sounds at first, this is a sound legal ruling. The government has created some narrow exceptions to Freedom of Contract and Freedom of Association do redress the issues of racial and sexual discrimination. The rightness of this in reduction in liberty as well as the need and continued need for this is debatable but it is established law. However, these statutes don't give the government permission for the government to become an arbitrator of fairness in how everyone conduct their business. By employing only women and replacing her with a woman, he is clearly not discriminating against women on the basis of sex.

Posted by: Michael E. Stora, Ph.D. at December 22, 2012 11:29 PM (IpkXJ)

364 No. Let's be honest. Melissa Nelson didn't get fired because she was a woman. She got fired because she and Dr. Knight were sexting back and forth, Mrs. Knight found out about it and told her husband in effect "Either you get rid of her or I use your dental tools on your pee-pee." And the doc quite reasonably decided that price was too high.

Posted by: Rich Fader at December 23, 2012 12:24 AM (qcNh7)

365 >>>but how an attorney can argue, and the court can agree that being female here wasn't the pretext for the firing is beyond me.

Plaintiff failed to demonstrate an unprovable negative that the employer was not bi. Though it is safe to assume so, the court would require that it be demonstrated (burden of proof lies on the person complaining) that the employer could not have the same problem with a ludicrously hot cross dresser in order to entertain sexual discrimination.

Never underestimate the value of a woman's intuition...
I, myself, pay special attention to the wives of co-workers and bosses. I want them to be comfortable with me, know my values. (I also do NOT dress like a HO HO HO in the office)
That woman knew what she was doing, and knew what she needed to do if she was NOT after the Doctor. Right to Work... Free to Fire....
Next time, dress appropriately, woman...
