'Men only' job ad posts land Facebook in boiling hot water with ACLU


Re: Is it discrimination

Is it though? It is illegal to not hire someone based on sex, but advertising is a different story. Otherwise, tampon companies would be required to have just as many ads in Men's Health as they do in Women's Health. It is also perfectly legal for insurance companies to charge different rates based on sex. To the point, someone recently made the news for changing his sex to female so he wouldn't pay so much in car insurance.
