"Its a problem with American stereotyping. American employers expect men to look like pitbull dogs, yet with demeanor of an indentured servant. After all, management likes "yes-men" who won't give them any competition. Well groomed men have far more self-esteem and give the aire of independence and control, that seems to be threatening to management. Seen this too many times, particularly working in government."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
