Good! People make judgments about what is good in their workplace. Sexual distractions are a factor and society doesn’t work otherwise.
Here’s one not for the squeamish, from South Korea: A semi-cooked squid inseminated a woman’s mouth, according to a paper published in the Journal of Parasitology. After experiencing “severe pain in her oral cavity” when she bit into her seafood, the woman spit out her meal, but continued to feel a lingering “pricking” sensation.
Doctors found that the 63-year-old woman had “small, white spindle-shaped bug-like organisms” lodged in the mucous membrane of her tongue, cheek and gums.
Despite having been boiled, the dead squid’s live spermatophores, or sperm sacks, were alive and penetrated the woman’s mouth. The sacks, which contain ejaculatory devices, forcefully release sperm and a “cement” that attaches the sperm to a wall.
Not to worry, calamari lovers. Most Western-world squid preparation removes the squid’s internal organs, leaving only its muscle for eaters to enjoy, according to Danna Staaf, who writes the blog Squid a Day, published on Science 2.0.

- (Simply)Powerless and empowered men ate more or less the same quantity of cookies. The powerless ones even consumed a bit more.
- Empowered women ate almost twice as much cookies as powerless ones.
Well, it opens a new can of worms, but what can I do?
Your empowered woman was not so empowered. She ate a lot of cookies because her image is still defined by men. Real happiness from women comes in realizing that they can be powerful… or more powerful, but it won’t be pleasurable. Should she make a sacrifice of pleasure I’d respect it, but I’d be a fool to not break her with the knowledge that her bliss and ambition are polarities, if she should cross me. I’m honest about this. Feminist men are not transparent. and control the whole game and no one has any idea who pulls the strings. Feminism is Marxism in drag… and I get the feeling he gets off this way.
(Reuters) – A New Jersey woman said on Monday that she was dismissed from a temporary job at a New York lingerie warehouse because her male employers felt she was too busty and dressed too provocatively for the workplace.
Wearing a form-fitting sequined black dress and black leather, sequin-studded boots, Lauren Odes, 29, said her Orthodox Jewish employers at Native Intimates told her that outfit and others like it were “too hot” for the warehouse.
“We should not be judged by the size of our breasts or the shape of our body,” Odes said.
Odes’s attorney, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, said she filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York.
Odes said she felt her wardrobe was appropriate for a business that sells “thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say ‘hot’ in the buttocks area.”
Media photographers climbed on chairs and crashed into each other as Odes held a pose and Allred held up a series of purple, black and brown outfits she said also led to the woman’s dismissal.
Odes said that on successive days during her week-long employment in late April she was warned that her attire was too alluring, that her breasts should be taped down to make them look smaller, and that she was asked to wear a red bathrobe to cover one outfit.
“This whole experience has been horrifying to me,” she told reporters. “I love fashion and I always will, but I don’t believe any woman should be treated as I was.”
Odes, whose said her duties included data entry and coordinating the shipping of samples to customers, said she eventually agreed to purchase a sweater to wear over her dress, but was dismissed anyway.
“I understand that there are Orthodox Jewish men who may have their views about how a woman should dress … but I do not feel that any employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on me,” she said.
An employee at the company had no immediate comment on Odes’ claims.
She doesn’t have a case if her job was data entry. She’s not a model in a showroom. If she is a distraction to other people then it is within her employers right to ask her to modify her appearance or feel that she wasn’t right for the job.

Thank you for your consideration and support.” Michelle Schimel’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
