Caitlyn Collins is an assistant professor of sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. And evidently she enjoys spending her free time looking for working people to harass:
Me: What if there’s a woman on your crew?
Man working: What? Oh. I don’t know. I’m just here.
Me: Are there any women on your crew?
Man working: Nnnno.
Me: Do you think maybe they’re related?

Here’s the screenshot for posterity:
Collins is really proud of herself (or at least she was, before she protected her tweets):
This thread will be great teaching material.

Oh, it most certainly will.
Yes, this is great teaching material. Just not the way you think.

It will teach young people to maybe rethink that whole college thing. And it will teach that SJWs are insufferable, self-righteous busybodies who get their rocks off by shaming people who haven’t done anything wrong.
Just let the poor guy do his job. He didn't make the damned sign.

[spits in the face of the working class who does not get paid enough to deal with your shit]
"See, everyone? I'm a good person!"
That's you. That's you right now.

SJW harasses hardworking man about irrelevant nonsense and teaches him a lesson.
I can’t believe you’re proud enough of this to post about it. This is what privilege looks like. https://t.co/UOFjFxztXH

Nailed it. It’s because of signs like this that women aren’t doing physical labor reliant on superior upper body strength in numbers sufficient to satisfy feminists. https://t.co/jRcklJYb9C

Let’s pause for a ratio check:
Ah, the art of the ratio … you can’t teach that.
Here for the comments. Was not disappointed.

Is this a parody account
— Captain Marc-vel (@MarcStarvaggi) April 4, 2019
There's already a @TitaniaMcGrath account we don't need another but tbh this is a good attempt.

Did… did you just assume xyr gender?

Did you ask for a shovel?
— mitrebox (@mitrebox) April 4, 2019
Only to bury herself.
The only woman I see isn’t working so sign is accurate
— Chuck B. Free (@chuckbfree) April 4, 2019
Honest question: Why did you decide to pursue a career in academia instead of construction?
— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) April 4, 2019
This “incident” isn’t an example of gender inequality and/or oppression, it’s a matter of personal choice. Why aren’t you on an oil rig, Caitlyn? https://t.co/Q695PWvSfF
— Kimberly Ross (@SouthernKeeks) April 4, 2019
Man working: You’re welcome to come take over some of this gravel shoveling….I could use the coffee break.
You: Are you kidding, not in these shoes https://t.co/Nf6BZbSNlH
— Bamboozled (@Bambootambootoo) April 4, 2019
Ah yes, ‘‘tis fun to harass the working class for a sign they didn’t make 🙄
— Tabitha Lamberth (@tabitha1211) April 4, 2019
Isn't your bitch with the company that manufactured the sign???
Oh. And it's terrific to see you out there dispelling the stereotype that Women are pedantic and petty.

Way to feminist, Caitlyn!
Sociology professors really are a waste of resources and money
— Kebeh Nayyeh (@KNayyeh) April 4, 2019
Caitlyn Collins is pretty compelling evidence that that’s true.
This is probably the best way to completely destroy your credibility with the working class. What you though, was they you would start a conversation and invite though. What actually happened was that you became the laughing stock of the jobsite for the rest of the day.
