If sexism was enforced as much as URM/AA debates, TLS would be half as fun. *Grabs popcorn*

Depends on who is hiring.

Studies show if female is hiring they will hire the unattractive female. They don't want better looking girls around.


LOL @ a woman hiring. Funny joke.


I'm sorry, what law school are you going to again?


How is that relevant to me fucking with you? I'm not really sexist, but getting a reaction out of you is just too much fun to let a little thing like being PC get in the way.


That really makes no logical sense, as your first non-"PC" comment came before I said a word. Nice try at thinking that one through though. A+ for effort.

To the OP: I would hire the person at the higher-ranked school. No way would I gamble with a TTT grad who only made top 1/3 of their class.

The Legal Employment forum is not for "fucking with" people.

Yes, I've noticed that hardly anyone takes offense to sexist comments on TLS. Irritating to me, but I suppose most women are used to it by the time they make it to these boards.

Legal Employment is not the place to debate what content is offensive, either. Please either drop this discussion, or move it to the Lounge where it belongs. Thank you for your compliance.

Wow, that's incredibly offensive.


Edited because I see soccer officials.

OP: Go to Arizona. The added advantage is that it's an infinitely better place to live than Ohio.

Yo dawg TLS is not srs bzns


Thanks for the tip, unfortunately as a woman I have to deal with sexist assholes like that on a daily basis, so I have a tendency to take things like that a bit seriously.

Hopefully people will now understand that I mean it when I say this discussion ends now.

If anyone wants to continue having a Legal Employment discussion, they may do so. Otherwise I suggest they think a little more carefully before posting.

Are you serious? So much inane, irrelevant bullshit is posted on TLS and you flag this because I pointed out it was sexist? That seems a little bit unnecessary. Then again, I'm not a mod so I'm obviously not privy to all the mod-exclusive knowledge you have. :roll:

Since this was a direct response to a blunt warning about not continuing this discussion, guess what you get:

Also, to prevent anyone else from making the same mistake, thread lock.
