If you're so hot that your boss can't help but want to have nasty, taboo relations with you, it's legal for them to fire you... in Iowa. This past Friday, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled on a case where a 53-year-old dentist in Fort Dodge, Iowa named James Knight fired his attractive female assistant, 33-year-old Melissa Nelson.  The horny cavity filler says he fired Melissa because he was afraid he might try to cheat on his wife with her.

He claimed that he had an "irresistible attraction" to her. So she sued him for sex discrimination.  However, the all-male Iowa Supreme Court ruled that it wasn't and that it was legal for James to fire her.  They said the firing wasn't sex discrimination since his decision was based on feelings, not gender.

The fact that he replaced her with another female employee didn't help her case either.  My guess is that the new employee is completely resistible to the doctor.

Melissa's attorney said the court's decision was a horrible blow to gender equality.

"Now men can protect themselves from sexual harassment claims simply by firing women they've been harassing."
