woman fired for shaving her head in support of uncle with cancer--manitoba human rights commission says "too bad"

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2011/01/27/mb-shaved-head-firing...

I can't think of a more obvious display of sexism than firing a woman for shaving hear head.

 First, it's obviously totally acceptable for a man to do it.  No male would be told it's not professional for them to wear a shaved head at work or would be asked to wear a wig at work.

Second, it reinforces the absurd notion that women are to be "pretty" at work, according to the male traditional hetero definition of attractiveness, and that they are under added duress to conform to that image in the service industry and are often hired specifically for that purpose (think earl's, hooters, etc.)

The Pill: Unnatural Woman

Quote:
Sometimes I imagine a world where writers are forbidden for a year from starting from the premise that women are dumber, more irrational, or more emotional than men. The pages labeled "Fashion," "Style," or "Life" in newspapers would change dramatically. The trend-piece industry would quite possibly not be able to handle the shift in focus, and collapse completely. Sexism is the gasoline that fuels it. Exhibit #1: This condescending article about the pill from Vanessa Grigoriadis of New York magazine.
