‘For man,’ really?

Editor, The Smithfield Times:

I am appalled at the non-inclusive nature of the Page 2 photo (titled “One small step”) in last week’s edition of The Smithfield Times. It should be obvious to Times editors that the “One small step for man” messaging of the file photo excludes women, transgender, non-gender, racists, pets, farm animals, fish, insects and critical race theorists. Wait, paint that last one as redundant given their inclusion within a previously mentioned category.

C’mon, man. Get with the times, Times.
