    So, let me be sure I understand this. In a nutshell, a business owner sexually harassed his employee and, when she refused to take the bait, fired her for being “too attractive” — and the courts sided with him? Talk about pretzel logic.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of “at-will employment.”

      We’re moving backwards. A randy man who can’t keep his thoughts to himself gets away with harassing a young woman, and he’s aided and abetted by his (either cowed or brainwashed) wife and misogynistic pastor.

        No I think the wife was just as guilty, she could have read him the riot act and force him to change his behavior.

        Instead she requested the girl got fired instead of requesting he control himself or he and the employee and her husband would be informed in no uncertain terms that he had a midlife crisis and must be slapped down hard

      In short, it’s the idea that women must be virginal and modest at all times, because men cannot control their sexual impulses otherwise.

        Ayatollah Khomeini and Mullah Omar would agree.

    It seems to me that this is setting the groundwork for pushing women out of the workplace entirely. All the employer needs is some pretense like Dr. Nelson used.
