Anyone ever think that the lady that got the job might have actually won for reasons besides being a woman? Great OP, you worked on your speech a lot and came up with some good ideas, that doesn't mean you deserve anything more than a "Good ideas, we'll use them. Also nice speech". Sorry but you're not going to be the one on FML saying "oh yeah, and I have this character flaw/lack of experience that makes me totally not ready for the position" and its perfectly possible. Even if it is a case of you being better qualified and some BS is going on at your workplace, get a job somewhere better. If you're so confident in your abilites, apply for similar positions at organizations that you don't hate.
@THE_A_TEEN, While I understand where your comment is coming from, I do think that sometimes the politics of the situation comes down to this. People usually don't vote based on logic. Of course, the hotness or lack thereof is speculation, but then, just about every FML has some of that.
I agree with 5 and 30. My first thought was "she probably had big boobs" or something. I mean, obviously OP could have a "sour grapes" mentality distorting his view on the situation, but we can't ignore the fact that more attractive people often go farther in this society. We see it everywhere from political candidates to office politics. And of course there's the whole "maybe OP is just a jerk no one liked so we won't vote for him no matter what" possibility. At the end of the day, we'll never know the truth (unless OP actually comes in and offers more details)...but yeah my first thought was that she was hot and most of the people making the decision were men.
Let me guess the ratio of men to women is also 4-1 and she's attractive?
