The stupidity, it burns.

I'd say that UConn owed this woman back her tuition, because they obviously haven't taught her any critical thinking skills.

The comments at Ann Althouse's blog are priceless, and pretty much spot on.

I'm definitely not a big college sports booster, I have no idea why Nike demanded the change as part of their sponsorship, and as a former Husky, I much prefer the old logo, but I fail to see how a picture of a nominally fierce animal promotes rape.  If this student thinks the sports culture on campus promotes violence against women, or at the very least doesn't condemn it, that's what she should be speaking out against.  UConn could be the Bunnies instead of the Huskies, and if the college community puts the athletes on pedestals and treats them as campus gods rather than students, they will still have the same feelings of "entitlement", logo notwithstanding.

Everything promotes "violence against women." It has to.

Those Women's Studies majors with bright futures as baristas, have noticed that there appears to be some writing on the wall, but since logic is a foreign language to them they don't know what it says. They're scared as hell and they don't even know why, so they do what they've always done - pin it on "The Patriarchy."

I don't think there is anything to add to that comment!

And I still think that whoever is paying her tuition should demand a refund.
