I agree bensw. Of course I’m not naive to think it wasn’t part of the decision making process to employ both a good-looking woman and a good-looking man. But I agree with you that it’s unnecessary to comment on it.
We can always ignore our so-called natural instincts, or at least modify them. It’s one of the joys of being civilised. 🙂
Again, it’s all pretty easy and doesn’t involve taking away anyone’s rights or free speech. If people want to retain what I personally identify as old-fashioned attitudes, there’s nothing I can do about it.
Personally, I advocate that we all use a bit of imagination and empathy and put ourselves in the shoes of the other person (though that may be a tad difficult for some men who think that getting personal compliments from strangers on the internet would be welcome ;). That’s all!
