The Toronto Sun is reporting that Sarah Tressler, a “lifestyle journalist” at the Houston Chronicle, was fired from her day job when her bosses discovered that after deadlines, she would go to work at her other office—which happened to be a strip club. According to the Sun, Tressler said “she began stripping to help pay for her master’s degree in journalism and continued to occasionally strip because she said it’s a good workout.” While stripping through school isn’t all that unusual, you’d think most people would stop after they got a job at a right-wing newspaper. But not Sarah.
What’s more, she’s now suing her former employer on the basis of gender discrimination. “Most exotic dancers are female, and therefore to terminate an employee because they had previously been an exotic dancer would have an adverse impact on women, since it is a female-dominated occupation,” her lawyer told CNN.
Now I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that if the Chronicle found out it had a male exotic dancer on its staff, they woulda fired him, too.
