If this gains traction will baseball players no longer be able to play on a field. I can hear the announcer now "Okay, everyone, we are almost ready to start as the players make their way into the area. Play ball!"

Isn’t it more demeaning to current farmers and fieldworkers to say that their profession is so abominable and undesirable that we cannot even insinuate an analogy in civilized society? I’m not very educated, but I was raised on farm and know what horseshit smells like.

Ok, I grew up on a farm here in Ontario and have actually worked "in the fields" (plural!) as did my grandparents. Yep, I have been traumatized for years and years by those smarty pantses in ivory towers... folks like this here Kraussy feller, for saying "field work." This policy goes a great way towards making amends....

This is so stupid its quite funny.

Perhaps they are overreaching and their house of DEI cards may be about to crash. As there is no "There, There" and all sound and fury about anti-meritocracy and anti-science will starting fading away as the DEI budgets get cut.

From my viewpoint, the check box group categories tell me nothing useful about an individual. All the checkbox groups have a full statistical range of human traits that are significant and relevant as individuals.
