News You Can't Use: Employee sues for the right to pee

So very sad that this had to come to litigation, but here you have it. A female crane operator has won the right to pursue a discrimination lawsuit against her employer for telling her that she would have to urinate off the back of the crane like her male colleagues when she needed to go to the bathroom. Citing the "obvious anatomical and biological differences between men and women, and the unique hygienic needs of women," (I can't make this stuff up), a U.S. District Court allowed the woman's suit to proceed.
