Is this REALLY sexist?

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/334655/college-demands-construction-crew-remove-sexist-men-working-sign-eliana-johnson#

Hope my clicky works.

I can't believe that they made them stop working. If I were one of the crew members I might just need a few more bathroom breaks, rain delays, etc. No work = No pay for most construction workers.

Are we really that picky about things? We still call ourselves woMEN so where does that leave us?

  • Wow. I was going to ask if there were even any women working on that particular crew. Since there weren't, then the sign was completely correct. I say the workers should sue the school for lost wages due to stupidity. Unfortunately, that won't work, but it totally should!

  • thats stupid. the few female construction workers i've met wouldnt give a crap, so why should some random person just seeing the sign care? oh yeah, cause they have nothing important in their lives that they need to care about.

  • As a woman, I really don't find it to be that serious.
