    Beautiful Women Are Denied Manly Jobs

    Attractive people are usually at a slight advantage when it comes to getting a job. But a new study finds that for women in traditionally masculine fields, beauty can be a burden.

    Attractive women were discriminated against when applying for jobs considered "masculine" and for which appearance was not seen as important to the job, according to a study published in the May/June issue of the Journal of Social Psychology. Such positions included job titles like manager of research and development, director of finance, mechanical engineer and construction supervisor.

    "In these professions being attractive was highly detrimental to women," study author Stefanie Johnson, assistant professor of management at UC Denver Business School, said in a statement. "In every other kind of job, attractive women were preferred. This wasn't the case with men, which shows that there is still a double standard when it comes to gender."

    LOL!

    Maybe it is just me!
    But I have not noticed any Attractive Women applying for men's Jobs.

    I will say it looks like the Feminist Disinformation Machine has not realized that the year is 2010 and not 1973 though.
