Lines that ought to be jokes..but are dead serious.
Angel’s first prize goes to:
“Ever since I was in high school hairdressing is what I wanted to do. It is sad for them to not give me the opportunity. This has ruined my ambitions. Wearing a headscarf is essential to my beliefs.”
Well, Boo-frikken Hoo.
The owner of an “alternative” London hair salon is being sued for religious discrimination after refusing to give a job to a Mus–lim woman who wanted to wear a headscarf at work.
Hairdresser is sued for refusing a job to woman in a headscarf
Sarah Desrosiers, whose Wedge salon specialises in “urban funky” cuts, says she turned down applicant Bus–hra No–ah because she was “selling image” and needed her staff to display their hairstyles to the public.
Ms No–ah, 19, is claiming religious discrimination and suing Ms Desrosiers for more than £15,000 for injury to her feelings, as well as an unspecified sum for lost earnings.
“I sell image – it’s very important – and I would expect a hair stylist to display her hair because I need people to be drawn in off the street,” said Ms Desrosiers. “It’s the nature and style of my salon that brings people in and someone having their hair covered conflicts with that. If someone came in wearing a baseball hat or a cowboy hat I’d tell them to take it off while they’re working. To me, it’s absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist’s hair.”
If At First You Don’t Succeed… Blame Someone Else And Sue!
Um. OK sure, let’s start with the bleedin obvious.
To be a hair-stylist you um..actually need to have a bit of style yourself Missy.
On the one hand bein a Muzlim woman, she must cover her hair with a scarf, but she presumably will have no religious conflict with touching men at work: especially the unrelated, Non-Muzlim men?
Wedge is a uni-sex salon. Maybe someone oughta explain that concept to Ms. “Look I got my feelings hurt and put another innocent Brit out of work”.
Does your train of thought have a caboose Ms.Nooah?
Will she be insisting on women-only clients to accommodate her religious beliefs next?
Or maybe, she will apply to be a swimsuit model donning the latest bur-ka and sue for being refused.
Or perhaps a pork butcher provided of course that her employer never makes her touch or smell pork.
For someone who seems to know nothing about the hair salon business, she shows a pretty crafty attitude to discrimination law.
Hmmm. Perhaps she’s in the wrong profession.
Become a lawyer and Spend your days suing infidels why dontya.
Better yet, sue the other 24 hairdressers who also refused you employment.
Perhaps you forgot your breath mint hun.
In the mean time Ms. Desrosiers, has become yet another victim of Muzlim intimidation and the PC machine. She had built up her own business on sheer, hard work and may now lose it all.
The only “discrimination” here is against the salon owner’s right to choose who she does or doesn’t choose to employ.
Ms Desrosiers, 32, who set up her business in King’s Cross 18 months ago, has already spent more than £1,000 fighting the case and says that if she loses she will be forced to close.
So, I ask,
Who’s the real “victim” here?
