if the answer to equality for women is remote location working then it opens the door for any eligible employee to apply for said position. If we're thinking rationally, of course like Dak has mentioned, your word choice suggests you think an extremely small minority of women get pregnant. Already said I would make my choice on a female employee based on their pregnancy interests. don't need to act like you're "busting" me. discriminate suggests I would never hire one, but their answer factors into their decision for me. you are, though. you act as if men and women offer the same problematic scenario for employers they have the same opportunity in my eyes, it's just a female employee who is actively interested in getting pregnant would be rated lower than one who did not.
