Sylva Stoel took a job at J.C. Penney’s because she didn’t qualify for any better jobs then promptly quit because her boss told her to go home and come back wearing something not short shorts to work. Stoel dashed over to Twitter proudly displaying her middle finger and touting her victimized feminist bona fides. She claims the shorts came from the J.C. Penney’s Career Section, which I guess was her way of saying how women’s work attire is sexist from the get-go. Or it’s just meant to shock people that J.C. Penney’s has a Career Section.
I told [my manager] that I thought it was unfair to send me home due to the fact that I had purchased the shorts from JC Penney’s own career section, but he insisted that I go home and change anyways.”
Point made there, Susan B. Anthony with the resting bitchy face. Stoel mentions how casually the men get to dress for work at J.C. Penney’s. Also how most of them have raped and dismembered children in the back of their Ford Econoline vans but still get to work in the kids shoe department. Stoel neglects to mention the reams of employee orientation material included pictures of things not to wear, including those short shorts. That might take away from her righteous indignation, though in no way harm the intellectual integrity of her argument. Once future employers Google her amazing dedication to work, she’s certain to be hired elsewhere forthwith. Wait, what does whiny feminist blogger pay again?
