College Official: Construction Site Must Replace 'Sexist' Men Working Sign
Breitbart ^

Posted on 12/05/2012 8:18:43 PM PST by chessplayer

The “Men Working” sign is a standard fixture at construction sites, warning passersby that they should be on guard due to potentially dangerous work. That doesn’t seem controversial, but an Ohio college official has declared it anti-women.

At Ohio’s Sinclair Community College, Elizabeth Verzi, the school’s Manager of Construction and Planning, ordered the crew to remove a Men Working sign that she called "sexist."

The incident occurred the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, as an ALL-MALE construction crew from the company JCrane was working in an area of Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The crew was told to immediately cease all work until the "sexist sign" was removed. Crew foreman Matt Peters initially thought the request was a joke, and the work continued. Sinclair employee Jim Fauzy appeared on site to say that the men needed to stop immediately until the Men Working sign was gone.

Breitbart News spoke to foreman Matt Peters, who confirmed that Liz Verzi told him in a meeting that the sign was sexist and should be replaced with a "Crew Working" sign. Peters quoted Ms. Verzi as saying, “That sign is sexist and it’s not up for discussion.”

I would say that this sort of thing is surprising, but it really isn’t. That woman needs to slow down and take a few deep breaths.

On Red Eye last night, it was suggested the sign should read “Man Working”. Although the comment was to ridicule the bystanding workers, it’s a perfect counter strike to the men-hating beotches out there.

Freedom of Speech is much different from some global obligation to listen to the blather of others.

Ignore the “college official”, and the ACLU, and most other liberals.

Take this FemiNazi: “Non-Women Crew Working”.

That should really tweak Ohio's Sinclair Community College's Elizabeth Verzi, Manager of Construction and Planning.

How about: “Men Working and a Woman in an orange vest holding a Stop Sign ahead.” That’s all I have ever seen.

Someone needs to start putting a bullet in the ass of any so-called official, college or otherwise, who is so uselessly egalitarian that they can create such chaos and pandemonium out of thin air.

She should get the bill for the time lost and the sign. And then she should get fired. The problem isn’t this absurd woman; it’s the people who allow her to be absurd with their time and money.

From the article:
The incident caused serious fallout. Jcrane, Inc. owner Jack Stull said in a letter that he would continue the work but would not replace the sign. “I’m through with appeasing, I’m tired of political correctness, and I’m no longer fearful of their media or their lawsuits," he insisted. "I will stand for truth.”

Um,Irony that can kill is when the very action of women having to protect other women from the idea that they arent equal to men, actually proves the exact opposite point they are trying to protest.

I wonder if Ms. Verzi’s bathroom door says “Crew.”

I wonder if she is a member of any organization that has the word “women” in its title?

they could put up MEN NOT WORKING signs.

We did that at a state site. We used black decals and put "NOT" between the MEN and WORKING on two signs. Took them three days to notice.
