Hotties: Final Frontier of Discrimination

I love this story, as it may be the last frontier of victimization: hotties

Typically hotties get it all. Occasionally they get the wrath of the occasional well-connected ugly girls. But generally speaking “hotty” trumps everything.

Being hot trumps wealth and intelligence. About the only thing being hot doesn’t trump is power.

But those days may be over. According to the Washington Post, hotties may be under fire at the place where they actually get hot:

A Canadian fitness club has drawn ire for telling a woman that her sports tank constituted “inappropriate dress.”

Jenna Vecchio of Ottawa was working out at Movati Athletic Club with her husband when she was approached by a female supervisor, she revealed in a Facebook post last week. Vecchio said the supervisor told her that her tank top made other patrons uncomfortable.

The top “was inappropriate dress and is offensive to both the staff and other members,” Vecchio wrote in her post.

According to Vecchio, her top was no more revealing than those that other gym-goers were wearing, but she was singled out because of her figure. She wrote on Facebook:

I will start by saying my tank top was no different than many other women’s tank top at the club; except my chest size is much larger in appearance in comparison to my frame than many other women. After asking every woman at the club who I could find on the way out if my attire offended them and they responded no, it became clear that the only ones offended were the two women supervisors working at the club today…I felt humiliated and discriminated against due to my figure.

I’m not sure how far gone the world will have sunk, if we allow those who are hot to become victims. There simply will be no refuge.
