Welcome to the patriarchy!

A dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant that he found attractive simply because he and his wife viewed the woman as a threat to their marriage, the all-male Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday.

The court ruled 7-0 that bosses can fire employees they see as an “irresistible attraction,” even if the employees have not engaged in flirtatious behavior or otherwise done anything wrong.

If you read the actual opinion, and the history of it, you get a real image of how horrible the defendant was here. There should have been a sexual harassment lawsuit here.
