Men working

Ooh call the cops, I just triggered some people and offended others; woe is me for being so insensitive and oh so politically ignorant.

While on a recent trip, I enjoyed seeing the quintessential road signs: ‘men working,’ while seeing men  operate massive Beckwith earthmovers, Kubota bobcats, Old Milwaukee sawzalls, Makita drills, Ford tractors, cement loaders,  while laying steel girders, tower climbing, sand blasting, pit digging, break taking, men. That’s right, men working, but wait, I may have misspoke, as the ‘men working signs’ were m.i.a. Yep, they were missing; we wouldn’t want to offend that one person who may have been of another gender.

Jobs typically done by men, sought for by men, and excelled at by men are at threat have been at threat for some time now, to assuage the weak-minded crowds of pc gone haywire.

If you are a woman, and you see a ‘men working’ sign, does this offend you? Are you that shallow to ignore the fact that for eons, this kind of work has been, is done, and will be done primarily by men? So what if there is a ‘men working’ sign. Who are you to rewrite reality so your ‘feelings’ are not disturbed?

Get a grip, grow up, gird up, (man talk) and for once, consider the possibility that ‘men working’ speaks to the essential difference between the sexes, and there is no apology for admitting to the obvious. (male and female created He them)

During that long trip, I saw men everywhere, do you hear me? I said there were men everywhere, working that which is a man’s job. Could a woman do the work? No doubt, and only a fool would argue, but rest assured, SHE could care less what the sign reads, the fact is, she is operating in the mans field.

So who is doing the  b_tchin? Ha, the feeling deprived ones who would not know the difference between John Deere and Bambi’s nephew.  They would not know the difference between Porter Cable and Cole Porter, but gripe they must! Image result for men working

Indeed, they must be included in a field in which they are naturally uncomfortable, they must have the sign removed! Can’t have a sign that reads ‘men working.’  When was the last time you saw a woman drive a cement truck? Or when do you recall seeing a woman (by herself) load refrigerators on the Friday curbside pick-up? Didn’t think so.

So here’s a toast to men, and a toast to the women who have no issue with ‘men working.’ Hip hip hooray for those ‘men working’ signs, if you ever see one. And to pc: go away and learn the difference between allen wrenches and Allen Ginsburg.

  1. Life must be really tough when women find “men working” offensive.

  2. As a woman, I think it is asinine that a” men working” or “men at work” sign would be, could be, offensive…
    I call that splitting hairs as well as oozing with insecurities…
    Ridiculous and a waste of time…
    I am so sick and tired of this overt correctness of ours—
    Let Gloria Steinem get her shovel or pick or bulldozer, if she so wishes, and go out and join the guys if she wants but let’s stop with the idiocy—
    that is my head banging against the wall—will the madness ever stop?!
    Because that’s what it is, pure madness steeped in gender equality—to that I simply say Bull Sh*t.
    We have got to get real with our world—and political correctness should be last on the list, yet we have allowed it within the top tier of concern…..
    ok so, I am woman, hear me roar…ENOUGH ALREADY…lets address our real issues—like broken and dissolving nuclear families—in which lies the heart of all of our woes….
    Sorry CS, this madness keeps hitting a nerve…

      Nope. No ‘sorry’ needed J. Well said.
      Pure BS as you say. ‘Madness.’

      But don’t bang your head! Love your passion though for agreeing with common sense!! Seems to be a rare commodity these days.

    Wow…that was awesome

    I work in what is still one of the most guy oriented jobs around. I mean, out of over 500 of us in our company..maybe 7 or 8 are not guys. There’s no plot there, it just is.

    They call us the _____ man, or the ______ guy.

    What’s the problem?

    When I was in the Air Force, I worked in Space Command. Since we worked with space systems, we did not exactly have the same problems the crews on Navy ships or the Army’s infantry troops. The work was mental, not physical. Nevertheless, there was a problem. We have systems deployed in remote locations around the world. Stationing lonely young men and women together at remote sites around the world is just asking for trouble.

    Speaking as a woman here…I am not offended in the least by men working working and the orange signs telling me as such. They are doing hard, dirty work in hot dusty, weather; stuff that would cause me to crumble if I were forced to endure.

    I am offended by peoples’s quickness to be offended by the most asinine things.

    Good post as always ColorStorm!
