    ok, this may sound like a weird question, but is there any law relating to things like asking for “young” writers or “male” writers or “gay” writers? I know employers can’t discriminate on the basis of age, gender or sexual preference, but is everything different online?


  2. Tim says


    Employers can’t discriminate for a ‘typical’ job, because they do not require being a certain age, gender, etc. to complete in most cases.

    In this case, when an employer is reaching out to a certain audience and wants someone that will have a particular voice or relevant life experience, it may in fact be necessary.

    I don’t see it as discrimination at all, or there being anything wrong with it, legally or morally. I understand if a website for single mothers wants a single mother to write for them, or if a website about life in Costa Rica expects you to actually be living in Costa Rica; I don’t need to fight that and cry foul.

    If on the other hand, you feel a specific job does not require such specialization based on the job parameters, I would go ahead and contact the employer to get more information and see if there would be any flexibility as far as who they hire, and if not, why.


    • says

      I wasn’t “crying foul,” but I was wondering whether anti-discrimination laws are in effect on the web. I’m not interested in applying for positions that are specifically not up my alley, but wonder why online ads are allowed to say NOT “seeking a writer with knowledge of women’s issues in Latin America” but rather “seeking a Latin American woman to write a blog.”


      • Tim says

        I don’t see it as discrimination in the first place, especially if it’s a blog and not just articles. If they’re running a blog on women’s issues in Latin America, it only stands to reason they would want a Latin American woman to write for it and be the face of it, someone whom their audience can relate to and will build a rapport with.

        Would you follow a blog about women’s issues in America (if indeed you’re American) being written by a Japanese woman living in Tokyo? Probably not. Doesn’t mean she couldn’t research the subject and write informative articles on it, but she still doesn’t have the same appeal or credibility as a person who actually lives that life, and who can speak from the heart and draw from her own personal experience.

    Just a heads up. I tried to apply for “Freelance Content Optimizers,” the second listing under the “Content Writing” heading. The location is listed as “USA,” but Ogden Publications is only hiring local candidates. Ogden is based in Topeka, KS.
