Guess af.mil is off limits now.
When deployed, we had a poster of a silhouette of a woman running at sunrise and it said "Just remember that someone is out there running harder than you" and they pulled it out of our gym because they said it was consistent with a culture of sexual abuse. Still haven't figured out how the silhouette of a person can be that offensive.
Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't. -Pete Seeger
Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated. -Arnold Palmer
Can we show a man and a woman running? They would have to be side by side because if the woman is in front, it may be viewed as a man chasing a woman to sexually assault her. If the man is in front, it may be viewed as the man is athletically superior to the woman. Must portray women as equals.
Can anyone find any possible fault with a poster of a man and a woman running together side by side?
When things go wrong in your command, start searching for the reason in increasingly larger concentric circles around your own desk.

Ther is nothing wrong with the picture shown in the OP nor was there anything wrong with the gym. The only thing wrong with the offensive material policy is there are idiots "enforcing" it.

Yep, that sort of thing was right up my alley but in all fairness to magnetic letters and dry erase boards, it wasn’t their fault, I was to blame.
I was clever enough not to get caught or spell out anything bad enough to launch an investigation. Well, except for the time I made up a phony person and put him on the inbound personnel board and a SSgt Phil McCracken got put into the CCs briefing slides. They looked into that one.
