I'm Sure I'm Against It ...

It is university policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment regardless of their race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, military service, veteran status, or any other category protected by law

But what the heck does it mean?

I think they left out razor bumps.

Funny. It used to be an issue.

It means a Rutgers administrator has an atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait?

If you Google the phrase, almost all the links come from New Jersey and can be traced back to this. But note the suspicious ommission on the Rutgers site. Did they not think anyone would notice? Clearly a lucrative class action for employees discriminated against on the basis of genetic history is there for the taking. What the heck goes on in those Rutgers labs?

Actually, if that list were any longer, Rutgers could leave out race and religion and nobody would notice.

But...but...but who is it that I shouldn't discriminate against. Is it those AB- who have historically been unjustly oppressed in our superstitious Judeo-
Christian-O+ culture?

They aren't saying. Legal advice. But they are out there watching you. Sleep well, you wretched cellularist.

David - You'll find out when they sue you!
