Ernst and Young Royally Fornicated Up

God could EY be any dumber?

Quote

When women speak, they shouldn’t be shrill. Clothing must flatter, but short skirts are a no-no. After all, “sexuality scrambles the mind.” Women should look healthy and fit, with a “good haircut” and “manicured nails.” 

These were just a few pieces of advice that around 30 female executives at Ernst & Young received at a training held in the accounting giant’s gleaming new office in Hoboken, New Jersey, in June 2018.

One section of the document is devoted to women’s appearance: Be “polished,” have a “good haircut, manicured nails, well-cut attire that complements your body type,” it states on Page 36. But then, a warning: “Don’t flaunt your body ― sexuality scrambles the mind (for men and women).” 

The most important thing women can do is “signal fitness and wellness,” the presentation continues.

If I was an employee at EY I'd damn well tell EY to go off and fornicate themselves with this training.

I know.  EY needs to do a score card on itself.  Namely how big of douche cannons can they be.  And tack on 10,000 points for their masculine/feminine score card.
