    Yes it does, since regs are different for men and women, reflecting norms in our society, and such regs have never been statutorily determined to be sexist.

    However, reading an article about dozens of black officers, and imputing that it means dozens of black male officers does reveal a gender bias.

    And, tits have nothing to do with it. A woman with no tits (mastectomy or otherwise) still adheres to the standard for women and not for men.
    Well, if we're going to play that way, these haircuts do not magically become less professional or less able to allow a hat to be worn a certain way if they're situated a few feet above a cock.

    Neither, IMO.
    Don't these people have anything better to do ?
    Don't they know that their duty to the public is number one, their reason for being?
    "They" includes the governor on down.
    Being concerned with an officer's hair is none of their business.
    But, at all times, the public servants must listen to their "superiors", the general public.
    "Listen" means take under advisement, not necessarily obey.

    Sorry, expecting a woman to conform to male norms is what is sexist.

    Actually they have, when one looks at things the other way. Women are allowed to go to work using the male standards and preventing that has been deemed sexist, but men are not allowed to use the female standards.


    However, reading an article about dozens of black officers, and imputing that it means dozens of black male officers does reveal a gender bias.
    Or a presumption that the writer of the article made an "apples to apples" comparison.

    No, expecting a woman to conform to FEMALE norms is sexist. Such as the 1950's female norm of not being a cop.

    Statutorily ain't the whole enchilada.

    The practice is sexism, and won't survive any scrutiny under the harsh light of reality.

    Thats not what she is being expected to conform to, she is being expected to conform to our law's norms for a cop.

    Sexist ?
    I think that it is JPS(just plain stupid).
    And a policeman's hat should not have to be worn at all times.
    A different hat for the women, if not already the case, would be apropos.
