From todays NY Times. Some excerpts (I hope not too much.)
So the questions are out there. I think everyone agrees that a woman can chose to see a female doctor. But what about hiring only women?
I would say that’s what the market wants, and that’s the breaks. But what then about hiring only men if that’s what the market wants? Or only whites? Does a distinction require a value judgement - that we agree that a woman wanting to see only women has a reasonable basis so we honor it, but a preference for men or whites is bigotry?
For that matter, can a man walk into the general practitioner’s office and announce that he will not see any women? Or blacks? (As a practical matter he can specifiy Doctor X - the question is if the office can accomodate a direct request).
Have at it.
