Leftism flows freely on the campuses of American universities, though occasional idiocy rises to a level I feel warrants exposure.
Such a case recently surfaced near a community college campus in Ohio.
As construction workers performed their integral service, one female employee was reportedly outraged at the “Men Working” signs erected at the work site’s perimeters.
The staff member’s tantrum apparently forced crews to halt the project until the offending signs are removed and replaced with a more inclusive and politically correct alternative.
Though conceding the incident might have gotten out of hand, a school spokesperson touted the school’s “deep commitment to diversity.”
The source went on to admit “it might not have been necessary to suggest that work be stopped,” but explained the school “stands by its commitment to providing an environment that is inclusive and non-discriminatory.”
This bloviator genuinely contends a “Men Working” sign is discriminatory. More than anything, I believe this case proves how incredibly rare actual instances of discrimination are in today’s America.
Why would people try so hard to drum up outrage over a non-issue such as a construction sign if there was anything else about which they could complain?
In reality, I guess I should be thankful these lunatics were only offended by the first word on the sign. Considering the current age of government dependence, I’ve got to imagine a large number of Americans consider the word “working” a pejorative.
