Re: Another big reply (section 1)

I know you worked in corporate america, hence I know you know that at the end of the day, I am right. That said, as you pointed out, you were a temp. But think about it, how many people have you ever seen climb the corporate ladder dressed like the woman in the frumpy picture. I mean male as well as female. It is a sad unfair fact of life that men have something of an advantage, so they're are going to be some men that get farther dressing like this than women do. But all in all, the man is still better off dressing like this. And simillarly, a woman, of any size, has a better shot in better clothes than in worse ones.

And I am not talking about the women's bodies. You're completely ignoring the entire last paragraph where I said, "I'm talking about the clothes not they're bodies" and linked to Lane Bryant. I work in a financial analyst consultant office. Probably half my co-workers are women, of varying ages, shapes and sizes. And I can tell you without fail that for the most part they dress up and not down. Here are some links to plus size suits just to show my point:

Jessica Landon
Lane Bryant

All quite sharp, all quite appropriate. None of them smaller than a 12W. (which is by no means huge, I'll grant, but that's just where "plus size" stores start) Now I will grant that any model, petite or plus size is going to be "hotter" than a "regular" woman, but that's just the game. The office manager at my company is by no means a small woman or a young woman. But I can honestly say that in the nine months I've worked there, she has not looked "bad" a single day. That is true of most of the women I work with. Fewer of the men. I also want to point out that I have the exact same problems with men not looking their best as I do with women. Its just that you're not really complaining about my stances on the men, so that's why the conversation is going this way.
