USATODAY - appearance can affect your paycheck (RANT!)

I hate lookism. I especially hate bias against people who are overweight, but I also hate when people make judgements about other people based on what they wear, or how they chose to color their hair to express themselves.

And I really hate people who FEED INTO this bias, by "working the system" and pandering to this stupid idea that you're only smart if you "dress smart", and only responsible if you "look" responsible, etc. I'm glad some folks are suing over this kind of bias.
