College’s husky dog logo promotes rape, says student

The new logo for the University of Connecticut’s sports teams is a terrifying husky dog that calls to mind images of sexual assault, says one student.

The new logo was unveiled last week, receiving mixed-to-negative reviews from UConn fans who preferred the older, cuter husky dog.

But one student went much further, criticizing the new, meaner logo for being a pro-rape symbol.

In an open letter to UC President Susan Herbst, self-described feminist student Carolyn Luby wrote that the redesigned team logo will intimidate women and empower rape culture.

UConn basketball coach Geno Auriemma said the logo “is looking right through you and saying, ‘Do not mess with me.’ This is a streamlined, fighting dog, and I cannot wait for it to be on our uniforms and court.”

In response, Luby wrote, “What terrifies me about the admiration of such traits is that I know what it feels like to have a real life Husky look straight through you and to feel powerless, and to wonder if even the administration cannot ‘mess with them.’ And I know I am not alone.”

There were two sexual assaults at UConn involving athletes in the past year, Luby claimed.

The logo and the teams it represents are menacing to women, she wrote.

“The face of real life UConn athletics is certainly capable of frightening college women,” wrote Luby.

Herbst did not respond to requests for comment.


Really? REALLY??? This logo makes a student think of rape??? What kind of messed up mindset has that girl got?

*Sigh* I used to have to work at a University and I have seen this sort of BS before. Ultra-militant feminazis trying to cause trouble simply to see if they can get the administeration to cave. I've seen it time and time again. And God knows, we dont want to be un-PC on a college campus do we?

Does this logo make you think of rape?

Me either. (And to think, this person is a voter. 2 guesses as to who she votes for).

I think there may be some shit in that woman's past she needs to work through. As for the general argument, we need a face palm icon.

It makes me think that they still suck at football, but make up for it in basketball. The new unis for football suck.

Oh, that bitch is off the reservation.

I wonder if that was really an original thought by her, or was she influenced by someone.

also the article stated she was a feminist - that should be amended to say left-wing extremist feminist.

Of course, I can always pray for her as well

It does kind of make you wonder.  Wouldn't be surprised if she and her women's studies friends were dancing around the Maypole one night and decided to make an issue of this.

Why automatically left-wing, out of curiousity? Are there no right-wing feminists?

Not really that call thselves so, or complain about some nonsense like this lol. But dor the most part salty is right. Feminist basically means feminazi, or what i would characterize as such. I think feminism was needed to an extent, but the movement as a whole, today, is dominated by the left (and mostly about "reproductive rights") and goes well beyond equality, and into the realm of man-hating, and victim thinking. You know, the whole system is rigged by men to keep women down, yadda yadda. Stuck in the same kind of tired mentality as when the movement began, though the world is a far cry from the way it was back then.

Yep, plus I know of no right wing feminists who would be afraid that a cartoon logo of a husky was going to rape her.  lol!
