    God I love the end of this episode.

    Picard and the Romulan Commander.

    It would seem we are not completely dissimilar. In our hopes. Or in our fears.

    Yes.

    Perhaps then, one day.

    Yes. One day.


    I had many similar experiences with my roommates from China last year.

    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant that he found attractive simply because he and his wife viewed the woman as a threat to their marriage, the all-male Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday.

    The court ruled 7-0 that bosses can fire employees they see as an "irresistible attraction," even if the employees have not engaged in flirtatious behavior or otherwise done anything wrong. Such firings may be unfair, but they are not unlawful discrimination under the Iowa Civil Rights Act because they are motivated by feelings and emotions, not gender, Justice Edward Mansfield wrote.

    ...

    But Nelson's attorney said Iowa's all-male high court, one of only a handful in the nation, failed to recognize the discrimination that women see routinely in the workplace.

    "These judges sent a message to Iowa women that they don't think men can be held responsible for their sexual desires and that Iowa women are the ones who have to monitor and control their bosses' sexual desires," said attorney Paige Fiedler. "If they get out of hand, then the women can be legally fired for it."

    Nelson, 32, worked for Knight for 10 years, and he considered her a stellar worker. But in the final months of her employment, he complained that her tight clothing was distracting, once telling her that if his pants were bulging that was a sign her clothes were too revealing, according to the opinion.


    seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2019953376_apusirresistibleattractionfiring.html
    He also once allegedly remarked about her infrequent sex life by saying, "that's like having a Lamborghini in the garage and never driving it."

    Knight and Nelson - both married with children - started exchanging text messages, mostly about personal matters, such as their families. Knight's wife, who also worked in the dental office, found out about the messages and demanded Nelson be fired. The Knights consulted with their pastor, who agreed that terminating Nelson was appropriate.

    Knight fired Nelson and gave her one month's severance. He later told Nelson's husband that he worried he was getting too personally attached and feared he would eventually try to start an affair with her.

    Nelson was stunned because she viewed the 53-year-old Knight as a father figure and had never been interested in starting a relationship, Fiedler said.

    ...

    Knight is a very religious and moral individual, and he sincerely believed that firing Nelson would be best for all parties, he said.

    "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," he said. "The motives behind Dr. Knight terminating Mrs. Nelson were quite clear: He did so to preserve his marriage.

    "I don't view this as a decision that was either pro-women or opposed to women rights at all. In my view, this was a decision that followed the appropriate case law."

    SIGH. So she was a threat to his marriage, despite her not being remotely interested in him, let alone willing to begin an affair. I cannot believe this was deemed a legitimate reason for firing a good employee. Why not just impose a dress code if her "tight clothing" is causing you pants bulges?

    Raven, you and I both know that, as women, we find ALL men irresistibly attractive, and it's only their incredible self control that stops the world from being a 24/7 bonefest.

    All right, enough of Sweet Lady G for one night.

    It's my best friend's birthday this weekend and for the first time in two years we're all in town at the same time so it's gonna be a pretty liquid diet.

    Going to the German restaurant in Tampa on Sunday.

    Gonna eat so much meat and drink so much He'Brew: the Chosen Beer.

    I hope this time we can refrain from having the more conservative members of the group shout random questions about Obama at me in between shots.

    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant that he found attractive simply because he and his wife viewed the woman as a threat to their marriage, the all-male Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday.

    The court ruled 7-0 that bosses can fire employees they see as an "irresistible attraction," even if the employees have not engaged in flirtatious behavior or otherwise done anything wrong. Such firings may be unfair, but they are not unlawful discrimination under the Iowa Civil Rights Act because they are motivated by feelings and emotions, not gender, Justice Edward Mansfield wrote.

    ...

    But Nelson's attorney said Iowa's all-male high court, one of only a handful in the nation, failed to recognize the discrimination that women see routinely in the workplace.

    "These judges sent a message to Iowa women that they don't think men can be held responsible for their sexual desires and that Iowa women are the ones who have to monitor and control their bosses' sexual desires," said attorney Paige Fiedler. "If they get out of hand, then the women can be legally fired for it."

    Nelson, 32, worked for Knight for 10 years, and he considered her a stellar worker. But in the final months of her employment, he complained that her tight clothing was distracting, once telling her that if his pants were bulging that was a sign her clothes were too revealing, according to the opinion.

    He also once allegedly remarked about her infrequent sex life by saying, "that's like having a Lamborghini in the garage and never driving it."

    Knight and Nelson - both married with children - started exchanging text messages, mostly about personal matters, such as their families. Knight's wife, who also worked in the dental office, found out about the messages and demanded Nelson be fired. The Knights consulted with their pastor, who agreed that terminating Nelson was appropriate.

    Knight fired Nelson and gave her one month's severance. He later told Nelson's husband that he worried he was getting too personally attached and feared he would eventually try to start an affair with her.

    Nelson was stunned because she viewed the 53-year-old Knight as a father figure and had never been interested in starting a relationship, Fiedler said.

    ...

    Knight is a very religious and moral individual, and he sincerely believed that firing Nelson would be best for all parties, he said.

    "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," he said. "The motives behind Dr. Knight terminating Mrs. Nelson were quite clear: He did so to preserve his marriage.

    "I don't view this as a decision that was either pro-women or opposed to women rights at all. In my view, this was a decision that followed the appropriate case law."


    SIGH. So she was a threat to his marriage, despite her not being remotely interested in him, let alone willing to begin an affair. I cannot believe this was deemed a legitimate reason for firing a good employee. Why not just impose a dress code if her "tight clothing" is causing you pants bulges?

    Raven, you and I both know that, as women, we find ALL men irresistibly attractive, and it's only their incredible self control that stops the world from being a 24/7 bonefest.

    And this man was losing his self control, what was he to do?!

    Ugh.

    Unless they're nice men. :p

    There was a website someone once linked it [chat] about minor inconveniences that at the time seem really irritating. Any clues? Because this was my worst one.
