Ohio College said ‘Men Working’ Sign Was Too Sexist

There used to be a lot of warning signs on country roads in Australia saying "Men at work".  In response to complaints that  there were in fact usually no workmen in sight, that was changed to "Workmen ahead".  There still usually weren't any, though

Following an election where the alleged “War on Women” was a major incentive to vote for a number of citizens, an Ohio community college asked a construction crew to remove the common “Men Working” sign after an administrator reportedly found it sexist and non-inclusive.

The construction crew at Sinclair Community College in Dayton was forced to stop working until the sign had been removed.

A spokesman for the college told Fox News that they have a deep commitment to diversity and take it quite seriously.

One Fox News commenter joked about the next step: “Men and Women restrooms seems divisive also…in fact, ‘no dogs allowed’ seems unfair to everyone except the cat.”

If there were no women on the job site, then what's the problem? If there were women, then change the sign to "Work in progress".

This isn't rocket science. It's people not willing to make a decision and follow through.

CARBON BASED LIFE FORMS AT WORK

This would offend, as well as confuse, the global warming goofs.

Diversity good.....carbon bad......ugg, ugg.

"Carbon based life forms at work" would offend any silicon based life forms! But to be a bit more serious - I concur with the first comment (2:36)

Have a feeling this is one situation where liberals support the death penalty.

Well, making the sign gender neutral will satisfy the feminists and genderqueers, but what about the big percentage of liberals who are workqueer? Does people working offend them?

I'm sure there are numerous other problems at the university that need to be solved and this is what the self important school officials worry about? I'm sure that the union construction workers still got paid while work stopped for this nonsense, all on the public's dime while these officials were grandstanding.

Fine, in the future purchase signs that are gender neutral, but until the current signs need to replaced because of wear/lost/stolen continue to use them.

If "the construction crew ... was forced to stop working until the sign had been removed" and didn't have the gumption to give two fingers to the complainant and keep going, they don't deserve to be called men. So perhaps the sign was wrong after all!

I'm offended by those signs. They're rarely "at work".

Guess the 80's group 'Men at Work' would not perform at that college. Too bad rather liked th Aussie band.

I keep wondering- Were there any women working? If not, wasn't the sign correct? I suppose it's wrong to even bring up the fact that there are 2 sexes.

A sign whole approching the collage CUATION DIP-WADS AHEAD

The King's Fool said...

Perhaps a different sign could be used.

"MEN WORKING AHEAD. jUST MEN. THERE ARE NO QUEERS OR FEMINISTS OR EVEN WOMEN AMONGST THEM AND THIS IS A SHAME ON QUEERS AND FEMINISTS AND WOMEN WHO REFUSE TO PICK UP A SHOVEL AND DO SOME HARD WORK AS THESE MEN DO.

JOIN TODAY AND MAKE THIS AN INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE GROUP AT WORK."

What I don't get is these signs have been used for at least 50 years (my lifetime) so why NOW is it "offensive?"

Why is something we have been doing for god (oops, I will get in trouble for that word) nows how long all of the sudden it's "offensive?"

Did some liberal wake up one morning and realize they have nothing to be offended about so went about finding something?

It would appear so!

America is circling the drain!
