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.”
