From The Lost Lettermen, a student of UCONN isnt as joyous about the new logo like everyone else, she’s saying it promotes… rape?
A self-acclaimed feminist, Carolyn Luby, sent a letter to the school President claiming that UCONN’s new logo will “intimidate women and empower rape culture”
What prompted the letter was the admiration UCONN basketball coach Geno Auriemma had of the logo:
“its 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 to Geno’s admiration, 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. The face of real life UConn athletics is certainly capable of frightening college women,”
I think the logo is definitely a strong presence… but rape? thats a bit of a stretch.
