  1. Just because someone is a woman or a minority (whatever that means anymore), it doesn’t make them qualified for the job/position.

    It is interesting that the first argument Boxer uses is the sex/race discrimination card.

    With this possible exception: if a position has been traditionally dominated by one gender, like nursing or engineering, then it makes some sense to let all potential candidates know of the opportunity. If you advertise for nurses only in Redbook, you’ll miss some excellent candidates. If you post for engineers only in Popular Mechanics, same thing.
