Female stupidity

Atlanta Stripped of 'Men at Work' Signs After Complaints of Bias
Thursday, July 10, 2008

Political correctness rules the road in Atlanta — which is replacing all its "Men at Work" signs with gender-neutral ones after a women's magazine editor complained of bias.

The project, which involves painting over the existing 50 "Men at Work" and "Men Working" signs with those that say simply "Workers Ahead" or "Workers," will cost a total of $1,000, Atlanta Public Works Commissioner Joe Basista told FOXNews.com.

About half of the city's 100 Public Works employees are women, said Basista, so he complied with PINK magazine editor Cynthia Good's request to stop warning passersby of men at work when women were right there alongside them.

"It seemed like the right thing to do," Basista said.

The change-over, which Basista wants to complete by the end of the month, has met with little resistance so far, he said.

But it could raise eyebrows when Good goes national with her crusade — which she's planning to do.

"We're calling on the rest of the nation to follow suit and make a statement that we will not accept these subtle forms of discrimination," she told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The city will have to shell out an additional $144 per new sign ordered in the future, Basista said. But the $1,000 initial cost to paint over the existing ones is not a big hit to the Public Works budget, especially since national industry guidelines suggest gender-neutral road signs, according to the commissioner.

"We hadn't really thought about it before," said Basista. "I said, let's do it. We're changing the signs now. We're hoping to encourage others to follow."

The "Men at Work" roadway warnings were used throughout Atlanta and would often be posted where women were toiling next to their male counterparts.

The project was launched on Thursday, according to Basista.

Some female Public Works employees complained about the male-focused signs years ago, according to city union leader Gina Pagnotta.

"It is a little bit biased to say 'Men Working,'" she told the Journal-Constitution. "Women are working, too."

A woman's magazine editor (isn't that gender bias? Oh yeah,it is gender bias against men so it's allowed) has a problem with these signs. First of all it is mostly men doing these jobs,especially the hard work such as digging and pouring hot tar,especially in summer. Women either hold the signs or other light work. As far as I'm concerned this woman can take one of her pink magazines and shove it up her pussy. It just might change her disposition and spare the rest of us a feminist headache.

Hi Masc. I enjoy your blog. I run a humour (mainly for male readers) website, and I want to exchange links. I want to discuss this with you in private over email instead of in the open. Please can you provide your email in either this comment section or profile, and then delete it once I contact you.

(If you could delete this message once I have contacted you through email, that would be good too, as I don't like discussing these matters where feminists can watch/spy).

I'm against feminism and political correctness and tend to use humour to make a point.

Thanks,

S

Thanks Masc.

I'll be emailing you in the near future as I will be asking you if you want to trade links to my male positive site (I'm sorting some server issues that will be amended soon). Thanks, S.

This same Nitwit of a Fembot idiot has had nothing to say about an Honor Killing in her back yard. If you look at Feministing.com, Feministe.us, pandaon.net etc. Not a mention of the Video of Two Women executed by the Taliban. Nothing. Cowardice defines Feminism in the West the allies of Al-Queda. Sooner or later Men will realize Feminists are the Jihadist's allies and have to go. Time to Thin the Herd.

A Purge of Feminism is coming if we have another attack on the US by Al-Queda. Or if a smuggled Nuke is detonated on US Soil. Termination with Extreme Prejudice of all Feminists. Them or us. I vote they all go.

Ironic, isn't it? These whores would rather die than ever do anything that could result in pleasing a man here at home, but they defend patriarchist terrorists abroad. That's the level of hypocrisy the cunts have achieved.
