The Word “Happy” Is Discriminatory

Virtually anything can be forbidden on the grounds that it discriminates, including expecting hair stylists to have a cheerful demeanor.

Alison Birch listed a job ad looking for a part-time qualified hairdresser at her AJ’s Unisex Hair Salon in Stroud, England.

The ad discriminated by including this:

“This is a busy, friendly, small salon, so only happy, friendly stylists need apply.”

The local job center nixed the ad on the grounds that the word “happy” discriminates against sourpusses.

Birch reports that she was told by the job center,

“[T]he word happy is a discriminatory word and we aren’t allowed to use it, as somebody who is not happy will be discriminated against.”

When utopia has been achieved, there will be no standards of any kind, and therefore no discrimination.

On tips from Varla, R F, and Dragon’s Lair.
