Posted on 12/03/2012 1:20:11 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
A construction crew working on the campus of Ohios Sinclair Community College was forced to halt work until it removed a Men Working sign that was deemed sexist by a college administrator. A spokesman for the college told National Review Online that the incident, which occurred on November 21, stemmed from the schools deep commitment to diversity, and that it takes that commitment very seriously.

A “deep commitment” to stupidity, is more like it.
But al;l of the construction crew men were gay. Doesn’t that count for something??? (sarc)
Good damned grief...
And not to be out done, California has renamed the capital to Sacraitto.
Will they demand the band “Men At Work” change their name?
So why did no one demand the name of the PC clown who made this demand. He/she/it should be roundly criticized and abjectly humiliated on line for days! Perhaps that would dissuade other leftists in the future.
A “deep commitment to diversity” is inversely proportional to any kind of a “commitment to excellence.”
Given that those workmen produce more value in one day than the vast majority of that looser “university” does in a year, the workers should simply tell the “university” to shove it up their smelly Obamas and try and find some of their valued “diversity” dorks to go out and try to do the real work that these workers are doing.
Without killing themselves are injuring their pot-filled lungs.
December 21st is quickly approaching. Don’t they have better things to do in preparation for the end of the world than to worry about who would be offended by a safety sign?
“Which one is man with beard?”
Well, they could have gone the other way and named it
So.. seeing a “men at work” sign was the worst thing that happened to the administrator all day long? Pretty fine and comfy life there.
The left is never embarassed by their deranged kooks taking things too far,
meanwhile, all conservatives get painted with the same brush if they can just find ONE person whose opinion is out of the mainstream.
Um.... exactly how many women are working on this construction project?
None? Then STFU.
It’s been reported that there are actually restrooms on campus with doors labeled “Men”.
After all this time and having seen so many examples, I remain astonished at the stupidity of people like this "administrator".
Fine, let the crew pick up the sign and walk away.
Why not? Colleges are running men out for years.
No, but CBS just might start showing “The Late Show with David Letterperson.”
And the Broncos’ current QB will be changing his name to Peyton Personning.

I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org asking for the name of the administrator who demanded the sign be removed. I suggest a few million other Freepers do the same. The only way radical leftists can be silenced is via the same intimidation tactics they use against us. If Sinclair responds-which I doubt—I’ll post the name of this lib, PC clown. The NAtional Review should have done that in the first place.
How dare CA has all those religious place names.
Were there any women working? If not, the demand to change it is sexist and stupid.
And this is an institution of “higher learning”? God help us.
UNC announced it will stop using the term “freshman” for the same idiotic reason.
New sign: “Caution: Lesbians trapped in men’s bodies at work”
And they are also baning Boys to Men, Dixie Chicks, Miss America, Daughters of the Revolution, Working Moms & Dads, Hooters, Play Boy, Mens & wowens bathrooms, locker rooms, dorms, pants, skirts, nylons, bras, support hose, premenstral drugs...... and ...and...and... ;-)
I’m sure that there is a law/statute that requires signage for construction sites. In which case, after the sign was removed, work should have stopped, until the law was changed.
Can I say “MENtion”? RecomMENd? “MENd”? “MENtal disorder”? “DocuMENt”? “EstablishMENt”? Didn’t think so.
This reads like a joke, but unfortunately it probably isn’t.
53% of Americans ARE THIS STUPID.
By the way, when you see a Men working sign htat is usually what is happening, If a woman is on site she is the flag person.
That’s what I suggested when the Air Force Academy was forced to change it’s iconic “Bring Me Men” sign. I suggesteed they do product placment and make it “Bring Me Mentos.”
No, that is also sexist, because it contains the sexist three letter combination SON, which is a male offspring. The non-sexist spelling of perSON would therefore be peroffspring, and the politically correct, non-sexist name for the capitol of California would be ...
Well, if no women were working it is in fact correct to say “Men at work”, unless there was a transgender involved at which point I don;t know what to say.
At least. At least that many and at least that stupid.
Some faculty are drooling microcephalic slack-lipped mongoloid idiots.
I had one call me and start whining that when she spell checked her email she noticed “racist” was in the system dictionary but “racism” was not and she WANTED IT FIXED RIGHT NOW!
I basicly told her the dictionary was distributed with the operating system and told her to go f*ck herself by giving her the DEC tech-support phone number.
 If you can call Ultrix an “operating system.”
 I was a BOFH turned sysadmin. A snarky combo...
 Digital still sold computers and operating systems - it was that long ago...
You got a new “nom de plume”?
The special “Sign Removal Detail” should have been called. They charge $10,000 per job. Billed to the school.
Not so fast my FRiend! Sacraperoffspringto?
It sounds too much like “sacré bleu”, a Marian oath, referring to the color (i.e., “sacred blue”).
Religious connotations, just won’t do ...
What about ATHEISTS?
Shouldn’t SINclair be forced to change its name, as well?...................
