Dress Code at Harvard?

, Bob Parks, Leave a comment

A few weeks ago, the Harvard faculty went off on President Larry Summers because he said there are differences between men and women in math and science. Good thing he left out librarians.

After less than four hours of deliberation, a federal jury cleared Harvard of discrimination against Desiree Goodwin, a black assistant librarian who claimed she was repeatedly bypassed for promotion because she was just a ”pretty girl” who dressed in sexy outfits, including tight pants and low-cut blouses. Sister, that is the wrong place, wrong time.

”I’m still going to work hard,” she said. ”I respect myself, and I hope others respect me, too.”

Okay, here’s a tip. Unless you’re a lipstick lesbian, Harvard is one of the last places to be promoting and showing off your goods. Duh…
