A good article by Andrew Mason posted at Aeon. The focus of the article is answering the question, “Can lookism in employment ever be justified? And, when it can’t, should we legislate against it?”

His conclusion is, “…we make it illegal to reject a person on the basis of their appearance, or particular appearance-related features, when no plausible case can be made that these features are qualifications for the job in question – when possession of them can’t even be seen as a way of conforming to a company’s ethos or attracting its customers or clients.”

Discuss 🙂
