School battle: Mascot team name ‘Stallions’ too sexist


 EBL brings us this story:

New Sport Team Mascot Battle: The name ‘Stallions’ is too sexist…

 Daily Gator, Weasel Zippers and Breitbart noted this story: apparently the name Stallions is too sexist for a sport team mascot name…in Kentucky.  Last time I checked they had a lot of stallions in Kentucky.
A school district in Kentucky has canceled the school’s “Stallions” mascot after a petition from the community argued that the mascot was “inappropriate and sexist.”

Caulk declared that the students of Frederick Douglass High School will have the opportunity to choose their mascot from a slate of horse-themed options:

“Moving forward, we will keep the Keeneland green and orange colors and horse image in the school logo to pay homage to Lexington’s rich history in the horse industry, but we will allow the incoming students of Frederick Douglass High School to choose their mascot,” Superintendent Caulk said in a statement late Tuesday. “We’ve already received suggestions of Thoroughbreds or Racers as possible alternatives to Stallions and we will solicit additional ideas from our students before they choose a horse-themed mascot grounded in the land’s equestrian heritage.”

While the decision reeks of sexism, the word stallion itself is not sexist at all. Rather, I think they mean the name Stallions is too male.

Then there is always the cow.

 
Hannah Simpson, of Southland, New Zealand, rides a 7-year-old dairy cow most days. It started when her parents said she wasn’t allowed to have a horse, the then-11-year-old got creative. Now she and Lilac race across fields and master jumps, as documented on Simpson’s Instagram page. Simpson, who works at a dairy farm, says she’s tried to ride other cows but has only had one other that could jump. While Simpson admits she was a particularly adventurous kid when she started, she wouldn’t necessarily advise other people to try riding cows.

    This just proves that the Femi-Nazis are mentally ill. What can we do but lock them up and let them fritter away in a corner somewhere like a moth trapped in a window. What a miserable life they must lead.
    I read about Hannah Simpson recently. My father claims he did the same thing having grown up on a farm. A country boy / girl will survive. *giggle* ~:)

    Hmmm. So I guess a team name such as “Kentucky Boy Toys” is completely out of the question.

    The word “inane” doesn’t begin to describe this believing that a stallion mascot is some kind of aggression.

    January 20th, it all reverses. Gone will be the sissy-boys, and in will be the Alpha Males. Men will hold their wives, like a tiger holding a piece of meat. The PC people will snap out of it.

    Sexist. You want sexist? How about snowballs? Will five year olds be given the opportunity to choose alternative names for what is now a male dominated winter activity. Can’t you just see it: Johnny why are you crying my little weiner? Mommy, Suzy threatened to hit me with a sphere of crystallized frozen precipitation…sniffle sniffle sob. But Jisie and the Pussycats isn’t sexist huh?

      The absurdity continues. Apparently only we of a certain age appreciate what life was before the great wave of P.C. nonsense. What appears to us as totally wacko apparently makes sense to them.
