WHAT!? I am discriminated against? I am an excellent worker!
Those born between August 23 and September 22 are mocked online for being picky, spoiled, and fussy to the point of being obsessive-compulsive.
“Virgos are perfectionists, so they’ll often criticise other people,” Felicia Jiang, founder of popular astrology website NoDoor.com, told New Republic. “It’s easy to notice, and easy to exaggerate.”
Some even have trouble in the job market. According to an online survey conducted by Sina, Virgos were named as the astrological sign which has the most trouble finding work.
That’s nonsense. Your personality has zero to do with what constellation was in the sky the day you were born.
Yet, the New Republic piece (Chinese Astrology: The Surprising Prominence of Horoscopes ) says over 90% of survey respondents paid attention to horoscopes with a third of those saying they absolutely believed in astrology. This type of discrimination against birth signs would not be legal in the U.S. and would certainly be challenged, and lost in court.
Following a pseudoscience as a guide to run your society may not be obviously harmful in the short-term. But relying on nonsense in the long-run will put you at a disadvantage in the real world. Good luck with that, China! They are seriously superstitious society.
