    I'm for the process," UMass Athletic Director Ian J. McCaw said.

    Anyone who uses the phrase "the process" needs to be horse whipped. After that, start in on those who say do it for "the children". :neener:

    Egg,

    I know that's what he meant, but I just though it was bizzare to apply the adjective "single-gender" to the noun "ethnicity." The last time I checked, all ethnic groups had two sexes. ;)

    Sometimes the syntax of the P.C. crowd is very Wonderland-like to me. I wonder if single-gender ethnic groups are brillig.

    A "Liberal Arts" college in a LIE-beral hell-hole of a state. What else should we have expected from the home of Ted "Where is my car, and my pregnant secretary? And no guns for thee." Kennedy.

    A Revolutionary Minuteman with a musket as a mascot for a Massachusetts school?! Whatever will us right wing, redneck, racist idiots allow to sully the minds of the good folks of our schools next?! :rolleyes:

    Where's jmbg29 to tell us what he thinks about Massachusetts? :D





    IOW, change for it's own sake?

    Ludicrous.


    But don't anti-gunners always say that the 2nd gives you the right to own a musket? Here I was, thinking that Rosie and her ilk didn't have a problem with muskets.

    :rolleyes:

    I'm supposing that the next thing will be that the Revolutionary war was a "misunderstanding," and that, had a effective non-confrontational verbal conflict-resolution strategy been employed, where the parties could talk about their feelings, it never would've been fought. Furthermore, most of the combatants were estranged from their fathers, not held enough by their mothers, and potty trained at a late age. ;)

    Yet another attempt by Liberal scum to erase all non-PC history from our country. The Great Prophet Orwell predicted this.

    OK, then how about "Minute Persons"???:D :D

    Seriously, these are college students, professors and staff. They surely must know that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it! :scrutiny:

    (This, of course also applies to English, Government and Chemistry!) ;)

    So, they want to tear down a symbol of those brave young men whose selfless sacrifices under unimaginable conditions made it possible for those ingrates and the rest of us to live in peace in security.

    They want to forget who made it possible for them to have the freedom to even consider discarding such an honorable mascot. Only to choose a replacement which is world renown for attacking in packs and targeting the youngest and weakest and ripping them open and devouring them whilst the prey still lives and breaths to experience a horrific death.

    There's just something not right about liberals/democrats. Hypocracy runs rampant in their ranks.

    They could change the name to "Minute Rice". That name should not offend too many people except those who drive little, inexpensive, Asian foreign cars with lots of flakey geegaws installed like crappy ground effects, oversized tail-pipe noise makers and 20 decals. They might not like the "rice" connotation. :D

    Typical Mass. PC puke! I wouldn't be surprised to see a statue of 'ole Ted Kennedy erected in its place...sad.

    Hard to believe that many stupid sheep could migrate to a single state...

    No offense to the two of you right-thinking Mass. citizens wherever you are...

    And you know what the REALLY sick part is?

    The state of MA, population 6.4mil, has more CCW permits issued than California, pop. 35.5mil.
