This chapter explores the extent to which a covert perfectionism, or theory of the good life, may be at work, along with more traditional antidiscrimination values, in contemporary sex discrimination jurisprudence. The chapter argues that it is difficult to fully understand or make sense of courts’ reactions to sex-based hiring in cases that involve personal privacy or sexual titillation without recognizing an unspoken judicial prioritization of intellectual development and a distrust of commodified sexuality.
