Chinese airlines hold bikini competition to recruit flight attendants. Wait, what?

Somewhere in America there’s a women’s rights activist choking on her packed lunch and questioning her faith.

This week, about 1000 high school graduate girls took part in a flight attendant search that required they parade in their bikinis much like a Miss America Pageant while job recruiters looked for the right “talent.” And here we thought flight attendants were only pre-menstrual women and gay men.  

The “beautiful promotion” was also said to help relevant professional colleges and universities “focus” on selection criteria and help candidates “build a platform to show themselves”. Sure, and when our vet tells us our childhood pet is going to the happy farm, it really is going to a farm.

Coming from a country that puts up nets around buildings to catch suicidal laborers trying to jump to their deaths, it’s not surprising that China appears to have missed the memo on sexual harassment for women in the workforce. White cat, black cat they both catch mice. As long as business is good, the high school graduates will continue to flaunt what they got from their mommas hoping to serve shitty food and drinks to salivating male business travelers.
