Sure you can, it's happened before. I think a female cop, or a security guard, got fired because she was too good looking.

I've been fired from several jobs because the women there just couldn't keep their hands off me. I don't know what it is, but women just get all hot and bothered when I'm around.

All that comes to mind is "Put your clothes back on white boy." But I don't remember what movie that's from.

What each person feels is sexy is different, this is way to subjective and argumentative. This ruling is a joke giving employers another reason to fire someone. This sets bad precedence. Now I have to becareful not to bend over and show off my great behind (of course thats only my opinion )

Well, apparently you can. Why give the courts the power to make decisions like this if you aren't going to respect them?
