Amy-Erin Blakely Was Fired for Having Too Nice a Rack?

I'm up here Gloria

If I wasn’t friends with so many people in the LGBT community I’d say this is the gayest story I’ve heard in a long time. Amy-Erin Blakely was an executive at the Devereux Foundation when she hit the “put ‘em on the glass” ceiling, according to her lawyer Gloria Allred who Blakely summoned from the pits of Hell on Halloween specifically to take vengeance on those who wronged her.

It’s being reported that some mincing hipster d-bag told Blakely that she was “too sensual” to get any more promotions and that men secretly ogled her at meetings, much the way Allred is doing in the above picture. If this sounds to you like a catty drama queen was jealous of a woman commanding the attention of a room then you’re not alone. Blakely (rightfully) complained about this disgrace to men everywhere and was fired by the Foundation.

Classy.

The Devereux Foundation is a non-profit and since I have worked in non-profits, and gone to many a meeting, I can tell you that Amy-Erin Blakely is not the only attractive woman that men with no dignity or social skills stare at once the boredom of a meeting sets in.When I was bored in a meeting I used to try to catch dudes staring at someone’s chest then catch their eye and shake my head ruefully so that they knew I was smugly sitting in judgment of them. I suppose that too would keep a person from getting a promotion they deserved at the Devereux Foundation

To say that the claim that some woman is just too distracting for business is suspect is a gross understatement. In the real world people look at people, big breasts or not. I hate Gloria Allred but I hope she wins this case.

CEO Bob Krieder released a statement claiming that we have it all wrong:

We have not received the formal complaint, which has apparently just been filed with the court today. Ms. Allred has, however, shared details of the allegations and we can tell you that they are purposefully inflammatory, and either spurious or twisted in content and context.

So why was she fired? The courts will figure that out. Here’s a video of Blakely and Allred talking about the case. Not to be a sexist pig but I guess “too sensual” is in the eyes of the beholder. She looks like an attractive, run of the mill middle manager to me. You’ll also notice that Allred is the lawyer for another “so hot she was fired” plaintiff. Make of that what you will:
