This is outstanding:
A Brazilian police inspector has lost his job after using Twitter to criticise women who worked for him.
Pedro Paulo Pinho tweeted that out of the 14 women staff of a Rio de Janeiro police station “only one had the talent, courage and determination needed for police work”.
The head of Rio’s police, a woman, had him replaced by a female officer.
Pinho’s defense that his tweet was “misunderstood” certainly rings hollow – when given only 144 characters to express your thoughts, it’s hard to fall back on the “I was taken out of context!” argument. That a woman replaced him seems a particularly just and karmic way to illustrate the error of his sexist attitudes towards women.
