Study: Pretty Women Don’t Get Hired

Attractive women are getting the shorter end of the job stick, according to a new study out of Israel. Researchers at Ben-Gurion University tested the idea that more attractive people get more job opportunities. They sent out identical resumes with “average-looking” male and female headshots, “attractive” headshots, and no headshots to prospective employers. Attractive males got more callbacks than average-looking men, and — surprise, surprise! — attractive women got FEWER callbacks. The study argues that “female jealousy of attractive women in the workplace is a primary reason for the punishment of attractive women.” But we’re wondering if it’s something else — that those in power are intimidated by conventionally attractive women, not jealous of them, and anecdotal evidence seems to back this up. Either way, it’s a good thing that most places in the U.S. (sans Abercrombie & Fitch) don’t require headshots upon submitting your resume. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Why Men Go Ga-Ga

News flash, the less clothes you wear the more stupid stuff guys will say to you. A recent study (who funds these things?) has shown that men’s brains nearly shut down into instant gratification mode when they see a scantily clad lady. They tend to zero in on your visible assets and fumble for words, hence dumb-founded phrases like, “Huminah-huminah!” (Refer to above dramatization.) Drool may be another side affect. Also, when they can’t get the object of their desire, they will grab what’s around — chocolate, beer, some other chick. So, bottom line, if your man’s fat, it’s because you’re so damn good looking and he can’t resist you. Or if you’re single, and you’re looking for a smarty pants, keep wearing turtlenecks.
