That's how he gets away with trashing potential customers.

“"Frankly some women's bodies just don't actually work for [the pants]."
That comment alone should have been enough to fire him.
They are WORKOUT pants, not designer skinny jeans. If he wants to market designer skinny jeans, then that comment may have merit, but not when you are supposed to me in the exercise & personal health market.”

yogini4 on Dec 10, 2013 at 03:07:43

“Not to mention the yoga market.”

rkg on Dec 10, 2013 at 02:55:58

“Designer skinny jeans also come in larger sizes and would not merit that comment either. It's possible to make all kinds of clothes in all kinds of sizes. It's up to the individual what "works."”

MyrtleJune on Dec 10, 2013 at 02:36:05

“And therein lies the rub. Health Promotion shames people into "health" by their marketing of hate and fear of fat but when fat people want to exercise they're not allowed to buy clothing in their size. AND we're not even talking about fat people really at size 10 and 12. That's not even plus size.”

“Washington & Oregon (at the top of the list) do not have anywhere near the highest costs of living.
You are right, the minimum wage should have cost of living factored in.”

AZLibDem on Dec 7, 2013 at 21:39:55

“With the cost of living factored in, the minimums from Washington and Oregon would be worth about $7.49 and $7.72 respectively, in Arizona dollars.

The Arizona minimum is $7.80.”

“Texas has one of the lowest standards of living (completely in line with states like Alabama & Mississippi), health, & education levels as well.
All in keeping with low opportunity & low wages.
No economist recently has notated Texas as any sort of "land of opportunity".
The Cali tech people refuse to move there, they'd rather commute by air.”

“Why should you have to do that?
Those bigots use the public infrastructure to prop up their business. Without it, they wouldn't have a business.
Gay people pay for that infrastructure, thus should be protected under the law.”

bobvargeson on Dec 7, 2013 at 15:24:24

“yes they do and of course they should.

Having said that I STILL wouldn't give those business owners my money. They will just turn around and donate it to some church working on denying gay marriage in some state somewhere. Why not just shoot yourself in the foot.

OR make your wedding about the love between you and your partner, not some political point you want to make.

They have the RIGHT to fight this...but....what will it change with that particular business owner. I would rather give my money to someone who supported us out of the "right thing to do" and not some court saying they had to.”

“Yes,
When women demonstrably make bad choices, especially when it comes to over-using blatant sexuality to garner attention, it does reflect badly on women in general.
Just as men making aggressive & threatening gestures towards women reflects badly on men.”

“Part of scoring well on tests like these involves critical thinking as well as general skills on subject matter.
