RAPE CULTURE: UCONN's husky logo promotes rape

Look at the logo upside down on the area between the eyes. I can sort of make out a cervix.

So she was criticizing Uconn ( which from what I understand has a legitimate rape problem. They have a trail at the school the students dubbed "the rape trail") and someone misinterpreted it as saying the actual logo promotes rape?

I certainly hope that's the case because if you see anything resembling rape in that logo you got bigger problems than patriarchy.

At first, I believed this to be absurdly stupid. Why was someone taking offense to a wolf? But then...

The author of that article misunderstood the girl's sentence. She wasn't saying the logo frightened young women, she mockingly referenced the tame look of the logo, then said that the real face of the athletics program (not that of the tame wolf) is one of misogyny and so forth.


And Rush Limbaugh leading the charge to draw up more anti-feminism, it all made sense.

Y'know it might be because while I'm very supportive of feminism I'm just not seeing the connection between changing the logo and promoting rape culture so perhaps I'm missing something. As I'm seeing it the passive permissiveness at the school regarding sexual assault and rape wasn't being addressed by the administration either way, now that's definitely something worth complaining about.

An 'aggressive' husky enhancing the status quo though? I'm not buying it... I really do wanna know if I'm missing something here cuz I just don't get it.
