As you may know, the supreme court recently decided to throw out a gender discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart. Apparently, the court agrees that there’s nothing wrong with only 14% of your management being female when 80% of lower-ranking employees are women.
Anyway, this got me thinking. Although I think the Supreme Court decision may be a bit off base, there are certain jobs out there that I’m perfectly fine in saying I’d rather have a chick or a dude doing.
After the jump I’ll get into my top 5 jobs I really feel are sexual bias worthy.
The girl pictured above and wearing a black bra is Christina Fallin. She is the daughter of some lady named Mary Fallin. You may know of Mary because she is the governor of the state of Oklahoma.
We have learned that Christina is marrying the dude on the right — Matt Bacon — in Ireland on Thursday. The ceremony will take place at the 15th century Ballyhannon Castle and Coach House and be immediately followed by a reception at the Dromoland Castle. After that, the couple will hunt foxes, dance with leprechauns and float down a pristine brook on a small raft made of four-leaf clovers and hay.
Anyway, the reason we know all this is because the couple has a wedding page. We highlight our five favorite things from this page after the jump.

So start sending me your questions!
The lady pictured above is Susan Tessner. She is the current favorite for the Bad Parenting Foundation’s ”Mean Grandmother of the Year” award. From KFOR:
Susan Tessner, 51, was arrested for attacking one of her grandchildren after the child reportedly wouldn’t listen to her.
The police reports state Tessner choked the child, grasped her hair, pulled the child out of the out of house, and then struck the child with a glass perfume bottle.
OKC Police Capt. Patrick Stewart said, “This juvenile was able to flee that residence, make contact with another relative and that’s when she was taken to the hospital.”…
Yeah, child abuse is wrong and everything, but you know what, it’s about damn time! Seriously, I think we’ve all wanted to smack some bratty little kid at one time or another. Thank God someone finally did it.
NewsOK.com really isn’t that bad of a website. But…if you took a poll to determine the most annoying thing about the site, I would bet good money that the top complaint would be the stupid auto-play videos that accompany most of their news stories.
I say that because it’s an issue that I’m sure has gotten quite a few college students, office workers and people at the Gazette in trouble over the past 3 – 5 years. You know what I’m talking about.
It probably happened to you one morning while you’re at work or class. You’re a little bored and decide to check out Royce’s Daily Bolts. You then see a link to some Darnell Mayberry column. You click on the link and a few seconds later you’re greeted to the loud audio of some guy telling you “I sell Edmond.” Of course, that dude is then followed by Jenni Carlson and Mike Baldwin — two people who have the sports IQs of drunk llamas— discussing Serge Ibaka nicknames and Eric Maynor tattoos.
Well, I wanted to find out exactly why NewsOK.com thinks it’s cool to “surprise” people with unexpected video content. So I emailed Alan Herzberger, the Digital Managing Editor for OPUBCO to get an answer.
Here’s what I asked
