'Ugly Women Are Perceived As Competent': Army PR Strategist

'Ugly Women Are Perceived As Competent': Army PR Strategist

Commented Nov 20, 2013 at 11:03:13 in Politics

“"In general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead,"
In addition to the fact that I do not believe this to be true, certainly not as a maxim, in the way that the Col.states, I'm also highly offended at the suggestion. Smart and attractive are not mutually exclusive. Using homely women in ads does nothing to improve gender inequality in the military or else where. Making a point to feature less attractive women because they are "perceived" as more competent only drives us further into the stone ages. Given context by the email the message becomes "Better ugly up if you want to have a prayer of being taken seriously". We shouldn't glamorize the military but if the women featured in the ads are actual soldiers who happen to be naturally attractive, good for them.”

“Every course That I took at NYU had a participation requirement that was a part of the comprehensive semester grade. The percentage weight was in the syllabus. If you don't come to a major majority of the classes you are not participating. So to call that arbitrary is incorrect. Everyone is subject to that requirement if its spelled out up front That said I'm going to bed. Happy holidays.”

“How'd that work? Did the student who attended every day but said not a word get a 0%? What part of the final grade was that?”

“I'm not positive about it being a state policy, but I do remember a prof saying this when I was in undergrad. However, the state can definitely require that private institutions maintain certain standards.”

“2 out of 14 classes (based upon what's written above). In what world is that not "excessive"? If the numbers are correct, it just doesn't wash. Who else could get away with that record?

Not to mention... I personally considered interacting with my classmates to be an integral part of my educational experience. I had a full time professional job while in grad school so, yes I had a lot of other places where I could have been.”

Mafdet on Dec 19, 2011 at 23:14:40

“The professor did not give him an "F" on the assumption that he had withdrawn. The professor gave him a D because he factored in Franco's coursework which I'm sure had a specific weight (quizes are 10% of your score, essays are 30%, exams are 60%, let's say) and then he assigned an arbitrary weight to the fact that Franco didn't attend the class much and the weight he assigned to that trumped every other requirement that Franco met. You can't do that. What weight did he assign to everyone else's absences? You can't present a plan in which every requirement has a value and then once those values are tabulated, the instructor gets to say: Ta da! Now there is an even bigger requirement which I will place an arbitrary value on and average it with your quantitative score. THAT is why the policy is written the way it is: [Everyone is expected to attend. No one is going to make sure you do. But if you never do, and therefore never hand in any work, it's reasonable to assume you withdrew from the class. You don't get an "I" (incomplete) for that; you get an "F" for that. A 0%.]”

“Speaking from experience NYU has an attendance policy, undergrad and grad. In fact I believe it is imposed by the state of NY. The instructors took attendance through out my master's program. More than 3 absences from a weekly lecture over the course of a semester is supposed to result in a penalty. (exceptions are made for unforeseen circumstances) Most people are juggling a host of things in order to complete a graduate degree. It's a commitment. If the everyday student has to meet these requirements why can't Franco?”

Mafdet on Dec 19, 2011 at 22:25:04

“Here is the NYU policy. If he did in fact hand in satisfactory coursework and do well on exams, he should not have gotten a D: Although the administration of NYU-SCPS does not supervise attendance of classes, students are expected to attend all classes. Please be aware that some programs take attendance into consideration in final grades. Students who, in the judgment of the instructor, have not substantially met the requirements of the course, or who have been excessively absent, may be considered to have withdrawn unofficially and may be given the final grade of "F."”

AndrewNY2011 on Dec 19, 2011 at 22:19:58

“I've had individual professors that have attendance policies, but none of the colleges I went to had a system wide attendance policy. A lot of teachers I had said we've already got your money, so if you don't come it is on you. How can New York State impose an attendance policy on a private institution? I attended schools in the SUNY (State University of New York) system, which are publicly funded, and no university wide attendance policy.”

It is a sort of American Idol meets The Moth event that will be piloted in the Spring in partnership with Harvard Book Store in Cambridge and then in the Fall at Tatnuck Booksellers (west of Boston). We will be updating the website soon. Your book looks very interesting.”

My Flying Lesson

Commented Dec 7, 2011 at 20:06:22 in Travel

“I have medallion status w/ Delta and have flown over 60k miles this year. I agree with Mr. Baldwin that the level of service and hospitality has deteriorated on all domestic flights regardless of if you are flying first class or coach. However, the rules are clear. Once the door closes anything with an on/off button that is not keeping you alive is supposed to be turned off. Maybe some attendants dont apply that policy as forcefully at all times. Bottom line is if you can't live with the rules fly privately.”

“I don't think the picture is immodest or lewd by any definition, but a conservative voter may disagree. Again, I say why take the chance? There are bigger issues to get worked up over. As I said, this is not over the top. But regardless of how low or high the top is, on her, it shows what some may consider to be a "little bit too much". This isn't a push toward the veil just my perspective on how I think conservative westerners (In a global sense) may view the picture. Many people are distracted by breasts. Men, women, children of all backgrounds, people like to look. It's not even an overtly sexual thing. They stand out from the body, western society makes a huge deal out of them, etc.”

“I'm not familiar with this woman's position in Canada. But assuming we are dealing with elected politics it is not worth alienating even one voter over something as arbitrary as a "woman's right to show cleavage". Some voters may be offended and not even listen to her great ideas on XYZ topic. I agree that this is dumb but it happens. As a woman who has worked in politics I personally would save the low cut tops and dresses for another venue.”

Parade Keegan on Sep 26, 2011 at 20:10:18

“Is her top considered low cut? I'm not being argumentative. I see a woman with breasts set high on her chest and close together (heredity, by design?). I find it frightening that cleavage is an issue, are we woman slowly being driven toward veils, etc., because of the illusion men "can't control themselves" or is it because other women feel "threatened". Though I wouldn't dress thusly in a business setting that's me, I don't find cleavage on other women offensive or a distraction nor do I think most men find it distracting. She is definitely NOT immodest, IMO.”

“The initial picture has too much cleavage for a professional shot. I say that as someone who is firmly in support of women embracing their femininity in the work place. It's not totally over the top, but in this situation it is best to error on the side of caution.”

kareemachan on Sep 26, 2011 at 19:40:30

“Why? Why exactly is it over the top for a woman to look like, oh, I dunno, a woman? And it's all of what, 2" tops? OMG!!!! Cleavage!!! She has boobage!!!

If you had said exactly why it was inappropriate, that would be one thing. But "erring on the side of caution"? Come ON now.”

“Low maintenance/natural hair styles are not a panacea for encouraging black women or women in general to exercise. I work out and break a sweat 6 days a week. For me being physically fit and wearing my hair straight are a part of a comprehensive package that make me look and feel good. People are prone to making excuses when it comes to exercise and pretty much anything else that requires hard work and discipline. If it's not "I don't want to mess up my hair" it will be something else. I really think women should wear their hair anyway that they see fit. There is already enough division in society. The last thing we need is to further develop an us vs. them mentality based upon hair and exercise.”

“Part 2: I was always in athletics from 7-22 years old. Then law school hit, then the bar, then real world jobs in law. I had to have my hair presentable every day, and keeping my hair straight became an obstacle to working out, b/c I didn't have the time for the maintenance if it started getting frizzy. Once I stopped relaxing my hair when I got pregnant, I suddenly realized I had this texture to my hair and wanted to work with it instead of against it. Once I realized I can have a nice style to my hair and exercise without all the "keep my hair straight" stress, there was no turning back and I am back to jogging just about every day, and for a nearly 40 year old mom of two, I look good! (If I do say so myself--LOL!) I think if more black women made the same discovery, I truly believe you would see more black women exercising. I know I certainly would have exercised more back in my trial lawyer days if I knew I could do my hair this way (and still look presentable to a jury). But I appreciate reading your perspective.”

lawgrrl on Aug 31, 2011 at 09:00:10

“Part 1: Your points are taken and certainly valid, especially your first and third sentences, but I don't think my comments should be interpreted as divisive per se. I am advocating for women to embrace their hair and their natural beauty. None of my comments indicate contempt for those that choose to do otherwise. When I practiced law, I kept my hair straight, as I interpreted that as the way to look professional in front of a jury. And I still like flat-ironing my hair from time to time just to change up my look (although it doesn't last if it's humid out since I don't relax my hair anymore). Obesity is increasingly impacting the black community, and I don't think it hurts to help take away one "obstacle", and let's face it---we as women have always been about our hair.”

“I also think this dynamic exists in the "single" world. My mom has warned me over and over again to just "let go of" a male childhood friend who got married to a woman that I don't know very well last year. (we live in different states now, and I just have not been able to spend much time with her) My mom's main rational is that my relationship with my childhood friend will make the new wife jealous. Frankly, my gut feeling is to say so what. I have known the guy since elementary school. Certainly if I wanted him I would have made a play while he was single. At the same time, this seems like one of those "mother knows best" situations, so I've kept my distance.”
