There is literally nothing in that article about anyone trying to "cancel" the Notre Dame mascot.

I love how there's a giant picture of a woman holding a paper drawing of a leprechaun, over her head and the caption reads "A Notre Dame fan holds a leprechaun paper drawing over her head."

If a mascot — any mascot —  is offensive to anyone, it should be reconsidered,” said Jean, a 25-year-old actor. “A mascot is a silly thing but why hurt someone’s feelings?”
That's what that generation thinks.
It's part of being woke.
It's what an older generation criticize these days as being part of "cancel culture".

As a member of the older generation I find the entire cancel culture stupid, silly, weak-minded and pathetic.

Having said that, I find Youppi offensive. It triggers me and I want it reconsidered.

It's offensive to me and I am someone. Just ask Speedy Muffler. :laugh:

Did any of you actually read the article? A sportswear company asked people to rank college mascots in order of their offensiveness. The entire premise of the survey puts the idea into respondents' heads that some mascots are offensive. The Notre Dame mascot ranked 4th.

NOBODY IS TRYING TO CANCEL THE NOTRE DAME MASCOT.

No, it's not. It's what happens when a desperate reporter for a sleazy tabloid approaches a random member of the public and asks something like, "What do you think about offensive mascots?" or "A lot of people are offended by certain sports mascots that they consider culturally insensitive. What do you think teams should do about it?"

VanIslander, I think you've said something about having been a reporter before becoming an English teacher. Sorry, but you have no excuse for falling for this crap.

The same survey (https://www.qualitylogoproducts.com/blog/best-and-worst-college-mascots/) also asked respondents to rank the "sexiest mascots".* Does that warrant a thread titled "Sexually depraved sports fans now want to normalize intercourse with mascots"?


*Willie the Wildcat is Number 1, in case you're wondering.

It has been said Americans have opinions on any subject (Stephen Colbert used to have absurd questions asked on the street and answers were given).

I read the article quickly on my phone while out and about. Some good critical observations of it by posters here who researched the survey website. Good work.

The quote i posted stands as an opinion of a generation that didn't exist in my youth; to wit, no one would have said such a thing in 1982: if even one person is offended by it...

If they cancel the fighting irish Mascot, a line will have been crossed. this is my warning to you, woke mob.

actually, I come from Protestant Ulster stock, and I don't care for the Irish Republicans. but sometimes, something is bigger than political divides.

Your move, wokersters.

But why would they cancel the mascot? There hasn't been mention of it, from what I can tell.
 I mean...
"If they post photos of the Pope in a speedo, a line will be crossed. This is my warning to you, heathens!"

Admit it. You're angry that Willie the Wildcat was ranked sexier than Sammy the Spartan. For you, that was when the line really got crossed.

Tell us what you're gonna do about it.

When the woke kids start running around like sissies saying something is offensive, the repeal and cancellation of it isn't far behind.  Their small but very loud voice will complain and complain and complain to get it cancelled.

In that case, what do you think will happen as a consequence of the sexy mascot survey?

Not related to this story.  But Billy did a good job hitting out at the woke kids.  (There aren't too many free speech Liberals like him around anymore.  Even though I disagree with him a lot, occasionally, he makes sense.)
