Is It Racist? Most Americans Would Not Hire Hairy Women

A slight majority of U.S. adults, 53 percent, would say ‘no’ when asked if they were likely or unlikely to hire a woman for a public role who had hair on her face.

As Statista's Isabel von Kessel notes, this is the result of a YouGov survey of 2,159 adults at the end of June 2017. Also, many participants were unlikely to hire a woman for a job which included public appearances if she had hairy armpits (36 percent unlikely to hire, 33 percent likely), legs (36 percent unlikely, percent likely) or face (53 percent unlikely to hire, 20 percent likely).

Broken down by gender, the survey indicates that men were generally more critical of female facial appearances: 57 percent stated that they would not hire a woman with facial hair, while 48 percent of women subscribed to this statement. Broken down by age groups, it's baby boomers (55+) who are least open to women sporting facial hair (64 percent), while 39 percent of millennials suggest that they are more likely to hire hairy women if they were the hiring manager for a company.

One question from all of this is how long before the progressives begin to side with the 'hirsutes'?

Isn't it time someone stood up for the rights of women with more hair than average? Make Female America Hairy Again?

The Founders mansplained in the Declaration that a decent respect for the opinions of mankind required ....    So, right there   I think courts of mankind would find a chick who doesn't remove that guy looking facial hair to be in treasonous disrespect for the sacred Founding, even more primordial than the Constitution.   This truth is self evidentnt, bitchez.

Anyone note the long hair and feminine collar in the pic? Why assume that long hair is female? Why is that collar style feminine? SEXIST!!!! /sarc

Seriously though, what every man in America simply declared himself a woman on paper? Do pants, a button-up shirt, short hair, and a hairy face disqualify you from being a woman? Do all women have to wear pink dresses? What could the left do if Americans started trolling them en masse?

It's the weekend! Weekend Tyler has always been "questionable" in his choice of dross. Bear in mind that it is almost August, nothing exciting is happening, and you can't just say "today, there was.no news", as the BBC once did.Back to the topic in hand, two things: One, don't Google for "hairy woman", unless you have lived through the 1970s. Two, in my search for something appropriate, I found this: http://www.freakingnews.com/Hairy-Hillary-Clinton-with-a-Beard-Pictures… . On second thoughts, maybe better to go with option 1
