Army: ‘Ugly’ women seem more competent

Post  fshnski on Thu Nov 21, 2013 12:52 pm

Attention, pretty girls — Uncle Sam does not want you!

An Army colonel has called for pictures of only “ugly” women to be used in promotional material, because they are perceived as more competent than sexy female soldiers, according to Politico.

In leaked e-mails, Col. Lynette Arnhart says pretty girls should not be used to promote the Army because they look like they wouldn’t want to “break a nail.”
“In general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead,” the colonel wrote.
Arnhart is on a panel trying to entice more woman into combat roles.

“There is a general tendency to select nice-looking women when we select a photo,” Arnhart said. “Such photos undermine the rest of the message, and may even make people ask if breaking a nail is considered hazardous duty.”

I knew a girl that was so ugly her mother had to tie a pork chop around her neck to get the family dog to play with her.

They said that girl in the picture was actually in the service too. Poor girl, think how she must feel.

That's the Colonel's picture. The one who sent the e-mail.

The U.S. Army is incredibly political, so this colonel has made a good point.

Shocked 

'Course, it'll get even worse with homosexuals in the ranks.

In the news yesterday—apparently, Uncle Sam doesn't her—either!
