    I have a thing for construction workers ( real men) but I'll feel sad when they come home with their back hurting and skin dirty, skin baked from the sun.

    Anything but wal mart and McDonald's.

    Your post is a massive generalisation. You're telling me someone can't be kind hearted if they're a business person?

    There are certain traits that are 'useful' in certain professions which you might object to. Just because somebody is pleasant on a personal level doesn't mean you can't object to what they're doing with their life.

    Well I disagree with what everyone else is saying, an occupation is part of the person, if someone is a nurse, and a good one at that they clearly value looking after other people's lives more than say, a businessman who profits from gambling on the market.

    Rather be happy and moral than rich and parasitical. I doubt many nurses share the same view as you, which rather demonstrates my point nicely.

    Of course. But then that's being idealistic... Ultimately, you should care for the person and not what they do on a day to day basis (given it's not illegal). To judge an individuals worth entirely on their occupation is like calling a fish useless because they take in water and not air.

    I find it not only grossly judgemental but also a woefully ignorant metric to work by.

    Judging a person by what they spend their time doing is not a good metric? So I can't tell that a monk values spiritually because he sits in a monastery all day? Yes I am generalising, I rather reserve the right to generalise, since induction is a simple method which has achieved many results.

    Not really,

    Rich people generally get income either from inheritance or non-work related market manipulation, or worse from military aggression, are you telling me the people at the top work 1000x harder than the people at the bottom?

    I think it's a completely valid metric to work by. Why is it ignorant to not show interest in somebody who has committed their life to a career that you think is harmful or who acts in a way that you think is unethical? If anything, I'd be shocked if you didn't care about that - that doesn't say a lot about your respect for your own beliefs and values.

    - Fire service
    - Nurse
    - Teacher
    - Pilot
    - Army
    - Judge
    - Politician
    - Civil Service
    I've dated a nurse and she was a *****.
