So my high school alma mater is in the news, or at least sort of in the news, of late. And yeah, this happened,
"South Eugene High School officially will be the home of the "Axe," replacing the former "Axemen" team name...
...Some people said the Axemen name, which dates back more than 90 years, is sexist and excludes those who don't identify as male."
Or as Justin Trudeau would call them, the "Axepeople."
And lest you think this was a quick and arbitrary decision,
"South Eugene High School Principal Andy Dey reviewed about 4,000 responses to a district online survey that asked respondents to identify why the district should either change or keep the Axemen name. On Wednesday, he then recommended to Eugene district Superintendent Gustavo Balderas that the school change the team name to the Axe."
I really wonder what it will be like to look back at this farce twenty years from now.
