“Pretty Up, Ladies”

pretty up bitches

Because America’s military leaders are such gentlemen, we shouldn’t be surprised to learn they are providing professional women with pointers on how to get ahead in the workplace.

“Makeup makes you more attractive,” female employees were told during a recent seminar at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (USDIA), “don’t be a plain Jane.”

The women were also advised not to wear flats – and told “a sweater with a skirt is better than a sweater with slacks.” Also, according to the presenter, “brunettes have more leeway with vibrant colors than blondes or redheads.”

Good fashion advice? Um … probably. But all sorts of inappropriate in a public sector workplace …

Government officials have condemned the seminar as sexist and “highly offensive,” sort of like our globe-trotting generals themselves.

USDIA employs more than 16,000 people and reports to the U.S. Department of Defense – an agency which last month lifted its longstanding ban on females serving in combat units. It is not to be confused with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) – which reports to the the president, vice president and other members of the executive branch of government.

Both agencies’ budgets are classified.

Lmao @ Smirks!

Who could actually give this seminar, in this day and age, and keep a straight face? Are the Kardashian girls brought in as guest speakers? Sounds like a government agency that is ripe for the hatchet.

The nails on the woman in this photo are absolutely disgusting.

Crooner February 4, 2013 at 3:48 pm

Until they’re gently scratching your balls.

Colascguy February 4, 2013 at 4:05 pm

Nails? I did not even notice until you posted.

Swingline February 5, 2013 at 11:21 am

There’s nothing wrong with a set of well manicured nails, but these are just too long. Personal preference I suppose.

Colascguy, I have a thing for minor details.

This may be the only thing implemented by Barry that I can really get behind. Let’s not do anything that might draw negative attention to it. Delete this story, immediately!

America’s military leaders …….are providing professional women with pointers on how to get ahead in the workplace

Surely you jest. Our Military. Petraeus, Allen, Sinclair

Maybe you just hit the wrong keys and meant to type: how to “give a little head” in the workplace

Yep, now that is more believable

DIA is not “military” they are a civilian sinecurial workforce, thank you very much.

Please post any new Catherine Templeton pics. I hear she’s getting hefty in the chest working from Columbia (not home any more). Maybe the water?

Leave sex out of it. When you get hit with a sex discrimination lawsuit or a sexual harassment lawsuit, you will learn to stop this shit. Nice that Harpootlian has a great looking daughter, so do I, but I would come after you with every legal means available if you published her photo in a lascivious light or false light.

Under federal law, and your website has enuff connection to federal law to raise a possibility of a lawsuit in US District Court in Columbia, you have created a hostile website and workplace environment. You whip your readers into perpetuating your lasciviousness with their own comments, which heaps insult upon injury. It’s not really funny.

I want news, I have no interest in who is hot, or who is zooming who, or who spends time illicitly at the Redneck Riviera unless this news has a direct impact on governance, the body politic, law, or regulation or infractionms thereof.

Leaving sex out of your titillating calculations would raise your profile and give you more credibility as a genuine journalist, which you have a headstart doing already due to your taking on the Good Old Boys and corruption. Don’t get sidetracked.

Keep to the journalism.

“you have created a hostile website and workplace environment.”

Ummm…one small detail….his site is only hostile towards you(in your mind none the less) if you willingly come here.

Additionally, it’s only in YOUR workplace if you do the same.

He has no employees other than himself(that I’m aware of)…and I highly doubt that he’s going to sue himself.(unless he can seek judgement for nudie mags & beer against himself)

If you don’t like the atmosphere, don’t type in the website address….if you just don’t like the commentary on women…don’t click on the articles, etc. et al

I know this seems axiomatic…but obviously you’ve demonstrated that it’s not.

This IS real jounalism.

The kind that USED to be performed until the media became the propoganda arm of the Democrat National Committee.

The Obama regime was waging its own “war on women”, the irony is soooo delicous, not quite as delicous as the woman featured above!

This is what happens when idiots think they understand the law.

Last I looked, Fits isn’t charging its readers to be here. He owes you nothing. Go somewhere else or start your own blog.

Wes February 5, 2013 at 2:32 pm

What in the holy heck are you talking about? As long as the pics he posts here are in the public domain and as long as he frames his comments as an opinion there isn’t a thing in the world you or anyone else can do about it.

Can anyone tell me if the DOD is going to adopt these suggestions for women in it’s larger framework?

I would imagine it’s very important for the newly “equal” women that now get an opportunity to kill and fight directly against a variety of middleasterners in a couple of different theatre’s to look good when being blown up by IED’s.

Though I’d image doing combat patrol in pumps is probably asking a bit much, certainly a hot shade of lip stick isn’t out of the question.

edit: it’s to its (or tits, take your pick)

You need to find a life other than hanging out on FITS all day.

Did they advise Nikki to shave her back?

I suppose, with Michael gone, Nikki like Catherine gets her sex release from those $12 dildos at Walgreen in the personal hygiene section.
