    When I was in my twenties I applied for a job as a bartender, I got the job, however the owner looked at me and
    said , " I don't know, look at you", You are going to cause me a lot of problems.. I got good tips and did a good job. There were a few unwanted advances , but over all , the guys were pretty respectful. No one should be fired
    on how they look, only if they are unkempt and nasty looking...

    What a shame, wasting good looks on a conservative woman, have you ever considered a jon as a dental assistant. I understand there is an opening in Iowa. Never mind, it's too important to the presidential nominating process.

    @stepped_in_it I only worked in one, it was not upscale...more of a watering hole for the locals and guys who
    stopped after work. Not one of my greatest achievements...LOL

    @PoliticalSpice You know you're being very judgemental, right?...(: Besides, I've moved on from my bar tending days. Thank God for that!

    How will this dentist word future help wanted ads - " must have periodontal experience and be a graduate of an accredited dental assistant program. Disfiguring facial scars a plus"

    Maybe he should be responsible for controlling his own feelings! He can't dismiss every pretty girl he sees out in public. He is wanting to have and affair, and it will be with someone! The wife isn't going to stop it!

    this guy belongs in a looney bin. Fire a woman for being attractive? Really now! A normal guy would love to be around a pretty woman. A gay guy wouldn't notice. A man in love with his wife would not be tempted or resist temptation. This guy is just nuts.

    I don't know what he was "wanting" but, while I think he is absolutely wrong, the laws regarding employment in Iowa will prevail. I think that is why he could get away with firing her. I wonder what kind of civil case she might have, though. And, maybe we on Politix are not getting the full story.

    I love pretty women. If I had my way all other men would either be gay or attracted to ugly women. But ya know? This guy needs to fess up to the wife. SHE was not the problem there.

    The dentist should be dragged by his hair from his office into the parking lot. Then he should be lifted overhead and body slammed into the pavement. Then he should be pummeled into absolute and utter submission. And then kicked in the ribs a couple of times. Now, every one of you worthless idiots that vote republican and turned your state into a "dentist can fire your ass for any reason whatsoever state"
    You're stupid and one day I hope it happens to you. Also, I hope your dog gets hit by a car. No offense.

    He sounds like a perv waiting to happen. He did her a favor.
    "If my pants are bulging...." seriously? WTF? Is this the 1950's again?

    @truthsayer Likely not Sayer. I will tell you for a fact, that an MD does not equate to smarts.
    The Medical community talks. Even if this had not been reported on, this girl would have told people who in turn would have told people.
    Dumb move.

    @Fishbone345 Yeah the right to remain silent is seldom used. People speak when they shouldn't and stay silent when they should yell. Crazy world we live in.

    If you look at the picture, it looks like she is holding a baby.
    Could that have anything to do with it?
    Hmmmm..........

    you do realize those are stock photos they use for the article headings and the people in them have nothing to do with the articles most times....

    @woodtick57 the folks picking picture to go with the articles have a perverse sense of humor. They pick pictures like the one of the girl who distracts men till our iq's drop, cuties like this one or the havatd munch girl, and then they delete comments when we prove our maturity level is below our iq score. I think they do it on purpose. "Hey lets post this photo, see how many idiots put up comments we can delete." They snagged me more then once!

    I have seen this daily in Afghanistan. Women wear burkas because men cannot be held responsible for their actions. Is that the message these judges are sending.

    Was she ugly when she was hired? If she wasn't butt ugly when she was hired she shouldn't have been fired. I figure this man's wife became jealous and insisted that she be fired.

    Dismissed a good employee at his jealous wife's insistence, what a worm. Jeez, the poor dentist needs marriage counseling and/or to grow a new pair to replace what's been chopped. Firing his assistant isn't going to solve his problems.

    Considering that Nelson was married and they all seemed to know each other this should come under sexual harassment.
    But hey we're talking Iowa here. I once mentioned to an ex-Iowa resident that I had never visited Iowa and that my wife and I were going to visit. His response was WHY.
  • #16

    So... if she started wearing tight sexy clothes, he complained, and she continued despite knowing the effect this had on him who was sexually harassing whom?
  • #29

    @FFX_VA texting about her sexual orgasms is not sexual harassment? Saying her clothing was inappropriate if he had a bulge in his pants is not sexual harassment?
    The ONLY reason she got fired is bc his wife found out he was flirting with the help.

    The first girl I lived with was from Iowa. She would go on and on about it, but my take, there are two reasons to go. Best prime rib I ever had, an the presidentil first caucus season could be fun, although very cold.

    Sounds like the Iowa Supreme Court has put equal rights back a few decades. Ok, women of Iowa (or any state), when your boss makes "bulging pants" comments or texts questions about your sex life, sue the poo out of them.

    @stepped_in_it It depends. Many of the Federal laws under Title VII do not apply to employers with less than 15 employees. So, it depends on how large his practice happened to be as to whether or not he fell under Federal law.

    @Granny_Grey No offense, but (to me), it doesn't matter what the law says on number of employees. If it was my wife, the dentist would need his own services. But, hey, that's me!

    @stepped_in_it i find the whole thing sort of silly. first of all, most of the men that work with my wife find her very sexy, and yet none of them want to have an affair with her, nor does it intimidate me in the slightest. i find my sister in-law to be 'irresistible', but don't want to have an affair with her, either now, nor 'down the road'.

    in fact, the good doctor's statement seems to indicate that he will have an affair with him even if she doesn't want to have one with him. sounds to me like an ego problem.

    @stepped_in_it why, it seems to me that it's rather a compliment... both to you and to her. don't you want people to think that your wife is pretty and sexy?

    If it iss your business, you should be able to fire people for any reason under the sun, regardless of how racist, homophobic, bigoted, ect you may in fact be.
