Ashley Judd, is that you? Student says UConn’s husky logo is a pro-rape symbol

Oh, come on. This has to be a joke or satire. Or something.

But no, the feminist self-parody is unintentional.

Student Carolyn Luby says she penned her open letter to University of Connecticut president Susan Herbst with “sincere concern” that the “powerful and aggressive” new husky logo promotes campus rape culture. Luby writes:

It is 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.~Geno Auriemma stated about the new logo change.

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.”

Take back the night … from a freakin’ husky?

Ashley Judd, eternally obsessed with equating anything and everything with rape, would be proud.

While the feminist absurdity induces eye rolls, Luby is trivializing rape and demeaning rape survivors who understand that a stylized husky logo has nothing to do with victimization.

You’ve come a long way, baby.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but won’t a dog die just as quick for a fired in self defense .375 as well as a human rapist? I don’t peeing on him will help, but a bullet through the brain will stop a rapist every time.

    • Chris

      This is a situation in which I actually have knowledge, because I have both a CT concealed carry permit and I go to this school. Unfortunately this school is a state run institution, making it illegal for me to carry my .38 special snub because that is illegal on government property. Since I’m not a criminal I leave my handgun in my safe, but boy would I feel safer from the idiots were I able to carry. Also of note, we have a system on our campus where from any location you’re supposed to see two of these Blue Beacon police call box systems. They even instruct you that, if you’re being chased by an assaulter, you should click the buttons on the boxes as you run so the cops can follow your signal.

      • TugboatPhil

        Chris, Best of luck in your studies and the career of your choosing. That said, please consider moving south and live in at least a bit more freedom.

        • Chris

          Although I am very fond of the freedom the South stands for, and the often overlooked humility of the south (everyone on the east coast is so pompous) my career will likely take me to one of the big cities (LA probably). I assure you that once I have won my financial freedom, I will probably find a way to get to Texas or one of our other fine southern states.

      • La’Milton

        they have those on our campus. A girl actually got raped 4 feet away from one

        • Chris

          I believe it. I was attempting to show my disdain for their concept of safety, as if a police call box is a substitute for a self defense weapon. What kind of person believes that the right of self defense is accurately achieved in calling someone 10 minutes away. I think people forget that life isn’t a TV show, where the aggressor spends 10 minutes explaining why hes going to rape her.

          • Peter Black

            Neither the Police or the State has an affirmative duty to protect you. Nor are they liable for failing to do so. If they are waiting for the doughnuts you’ll be outta luck. I’d reconsider not carrying because of a sign or a law that prevents you from defending yourself. There are many effective ways to conceal and realistically no one is really paying that much attention. Too busy hiding from the big bad Husky.

  • Walt

    Man I must have been drunk when I wrote that last comment. (Note to self, proof reading is your friend). I meant .357 not .375. Although a .375 H & H will do the job too.

      When she gets laughed off campus, she should avoid transferring to TCU. After all, their mascot is the horned frog, also known as the horny toad.

      What am I thinking? She won’t be laughed off campus. There will be sit-ins and “hunger strikes” by the cause-heads until the administration forms a “working group” and changes the logo. To maybe:

      UCONN blocks of wood? no, that’s obviously unacceptable

      UCONN concrete blocks? no, too heavy and used to kill cops in certain
      “youth” neighborhoods in NYC – although that might be an argument FOR this one

      UCONN superballs? – nope, could get lodged in the throat and kill

      UCONN bunny rabbits? – I thought we were trying to avoid the sex thing

      UCONN pencils? – could be a sharp weapon

      UCONN cottonballs? – insensitive to Acne-Americans

      UCONN coffee mugs? – Are you kidding?! Don’t you know how coffee pickers are exploited in some countries?

      UCONN treestumps? – I just heard that tree scream!

    The whole thing here:

    The article as a whole isn’t about the husky logo – it’s about a perceived problem with the culture of the athletic program at UConn. Apparently, the author thinks this culture encourages and/or covers up rape. I don’t know anything about UConn, so I can’t say whether her major points are accurate.
    However, dragging the Husky icon into the discussion was just foolish. Major gaffe. It takes what should be a serious letter about a serious issue and…well, we can see the results. Sadly, I think the poor girl has been trained to think this way by UConn.

    • Lisa Dean

      All I can say is, she better be glad she doesn’t go to University Alabama Tuscaloosa. Also, the UCONN women’s basketball team does UCONN proud every year, isn’t she proud of that?

  • Garth Haycock

    That this little ‘fraidy-cat” feminist thinks that the new logo looks aggressive demonstrates her ignorance of the canine species. This logo has the corners of its mouth turned up – or as we humans would say, the dog is smiling. This is indicative of submission in the dog family. A submissive dog is not an aggressive dog.

    Anyone with any kind of observational skills would know this. Think about it for a minute and you’ll realize that at one time in our respective lives, we’ve all faced an aggressive dog. When the dog is emitting a low-pitched, guttural growl, it’s lips are curled downward. That is a sign of aggression.

    The left knows no bounds. A bill in NJ proposes to make all language “gender neutral” as in no more penMANship–all handwriting; no MANdates–all requirements; but they can’t change manhole due to civil engineering manuals or midshipman due to military code.

    In MA and CA, they want text books without husband and wife (two of the oldest words in Eng) or mother and father (also orig. words in Eng.) so homosexual marriage can promote parent 1 and parent 2.

    In order to stop some leftist krap, stop the immig “reform” and call Cong. every hour 202-224-3121 and join for free Numbers USA and send faxes for free to your Sens. all day along. Otherwise, there will be 11 million more members of the Dem. Party to create the nonsense like the husky girl.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      Nobody authorized any legislature to define words of the English language.

      • rennyangel2

        I DIDN’T SAY A LAW (CAN’T YOU READ?) In the NJ Assembly, there is a bill to “neutralized” or gender-free the language.This bill has not yet passed.
        However, it has already been done in colleges like Sarah Lawrence where “he” is been eliminated as a pronoun. The pronounce “it” is suggested as a substitute (Sarah Lawrence College “Gender Neutral Guidelines”). U of MI has similar writing requirements. Other actions on gender-neutral language is France is set to remove “mother” and “father” from all official documents (UK). Our State Department is removing “mother” and “father” from passports (US State Department). ‘Mother” and “father” go back in the Eng. language to Old High German. Very ancient words. And “mater” and “pater” go back to Latin. Passports will replace them with Parent One and Parent Two. In education (where I am), there is a push to change textbook the same way to accommodate the feminist and homosexual agendas.

        • IceColdTroll

            Yes, the gender-neutral talk was a radio subject on Wed, c. 2-3 pm, 101.5. The Dimminsky and Doyle Show. The bill is a proposal but not yet a law. I am going to guess it won’t make it in the Sen. and/or Christie won’t sign it. But the ultra-feminists and homosexual activists have been on this kick a long time.

          Apparently, you have never read the law. Legislatures routinely assume the authority, in virtually every jurisdiction, of “defining” words. This is a modern conception of liberals in the legislatures. A forced neutering of the language is merely an extension of this foolish practice. Foolish politically correct coercion of the language which amounts to little more than Fascist Propaganda. Perhaps you should learn to read, or learn something about the subject, before you criticize others and make yourself look foolish.

      Gotta tell you if I was in HR at a Fortune 500 company, I’d circular file any resume from a student who’d majored in Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies. Just imagine what her classes would have been.

  • MurphTacular

    That’s what she sees. It’s not what I see, but please, don’t miss a chance to be outraged, proffer mean-spirited ridicule and blame everything you don’t like in the world (feminism, liberalism, lord-knows-what-else) for causing this … And the band kept playin’ on …

    • Ben Bollman

      Yes, because I’m sure no one on the left ridicules anyone on the right. See: any comment on Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, Herman Cain….oh who am I kidding, liberals are disgusting douchebags to any conservative. Liberals claim that conservatives are racist and misogynist yet call black conservatives “house n-gger” and “uncle tom” and female conservatives “c-nt”, so just take your high and mighty attitude and shove it where the sun don’t shine.

      • MurphTacular

        Gee, I don’t remember ridiculing Sarah Palin, W., or Herman Cain … But thanks for presuming to know all of the following:
        a) All of my political beliefs
        b) My general opinions about African-American conservatives or female Republicans
        c) That my attitude is “high and mighty.”

        Other than that, thanks for sharing such a charming post. :> Have a nice weekend.

        • Ben Bollman

          Re-read my post, I said “liberals” and only referred to you personally in your high and mighty attitude which still exists even in your last post no matter how ardently you deny it. Reading comprehension is key.

          • MurphTacular

            True: reading comprehension is key. It appeared to me that you were lumping me in with the aforementioned groups. It’s a common practice here at to take one remark and then basically assign it and the thought process that produced it to everyone in the world who is to the political left of Most Popular Cnservative du jour.

          • Ben Bollman

            They linked one liberal who calls everything ‘rape’ to another liberal who call everything ‘rape’, the distinction is clear. And if you knew anything about Saul Alinsky and the fact that most liberals follow his thought process and tactics it is easy to point out when they are using them. I suggest reading Rules for Radicals.

          • MurphTacular

            “Rules for Radicals”? I’ve got better stuff to read … And besides, because I’m not a Tea Party community leader, former Rep. Dick Armey has never given me a free copy of Alinsky’s book to read. But thanks for the tip anyway, BB.

          • Ben Bollman

            Obama and Clinton have read him and follow him too, genius. Apparently your cursory glance at a Google search didn’t tell you that.

          • MurphTacular

            Actually that tidbit about Armey and Alinsky came from a “cursory glance” of the Wall Street Journal last winter … William F. Buckley also reportedly admired his organizational abilities, as well.

          • Ben Bollman

            Yeah, I think conservatives should adopt his tactics as well because they are effective and liberals have been killing us with them for years. We can also call bullsh-t when someone like Judd or this student use his tactics, we can spot them.

          • MurphTacular

            So anytime that anyone, anywhere objects to a new image because they feel it conveys a negative message that they oppose, that’s being an Alinsky-ite? Hmmm, so you’re saying that were the NRA to change its name to “Second Amendment Advocates” or something like that, and I objected to it, I’d be an Alinsky-ite? Methinks not.

          • Ben Bollman

            You mean like pro-abortion advocates saying instead of them wanting abortions they believe in ‘reproductive rights’? That’s Alinsky, it’s a tactic not an ideology. I suggest informing yourself.

          • MurphTacular

            Sounds like marketing to me … And I’ll stick to my own reading lists, (Thanks!) unless I want to become either a) a community organizer who doesn’t already understand basic marketing principles or b) A paranoid who thinks wide-eyed liberals are trying to undermine the country at every conceivable turn.

          • Ben Bollman

            Yes, strive to be as low information as possible. I would expect nothing less from an Obama voter.

    I actually read her full letter. What she was saying was that there are other much larger issues within the University’s athletic department and she was appalled that they were focusing on choosing a new logo rather than addressing the violent and criminal actions of some of their athletes.

  • Patricia Matthews

    I read this thinking it was a joke. I was shocked it wasn’t. OMG. REALLY??? And you wonder why conservatives point, laugh and take nothing you say seriously. There are REAL women’s issues that need attention and this cartoon mascot is certainly not one of them. How about spending time advocating for domestic abuse legislation or volunteering in a women’s shelter. By making an issue of this you are setting up the rest of us who are trying to educate and inform the populace about honest to God real issues to not be taken seriously. IMHO, don’t go to
    games or just go to a different school, but please for the love of all that is HOLY, Shut the Heck up. Rant over, carry on with your day.

    Yeah but, does the doggie promote ‘rape’ rape?

  • Michael John Naretto

    Due to political correctness the Washington Bullets had to change their name to the Wizards. Because “Bullets” promoted violence and the owner of the team didn’t want to highlight the high homicide rate in Washington DC. Ridiculous.

    • TexSizzle

      OT: When I was attending UT El Paso in the mid-1970s, I remember a headline in the sports section of the El Paso newspaper: “Bullets Must Execute Better”.


    Liberals are insane. They try to make ANY point, even non-political ones, an agenda against them.

  • MattM

    Not saying she is one, but as Democrats have responded in similar fashion recently, I wouldn’t doubt what’s listen on her voter ID card. Lately, I have seen the left make some pretty stupid comments. Like “borderline-test-them-for-retardedness” comments. Lets see. Lately, according to the left, Gang bangers aren’t to blame for killing each other over control of the drugs and prostitution trade, guns make them do it. Guam will become so overpopulated that it will tip over and now a sports logo of a dog promotes rape.

  • Timmmmm

    Hilarious thing is that Huskies are not aggresive at all, they are horrible at being watch dogs because they will treat any intruder as a guest to the home and greet them and not attack, they just look scary.

    See! Now it’s dog cartoons that force people to rape. Next you will be saying that pencils misspell words! Or was it key boards?

  • davedufour

    Pardon my stupidity, but what exactly is “rape culture?” Some college professor had to have put this idea into the student’s head — no one in the real world talks about rape culture that I know of.

  • alanwillingham

    It was the Husky which as sled dogs, was responsible for delivering diphtheria serum over 600 miles through extreme cold, snow, and blizzards to save hundreds of peoples lives in 1925. That epic successful effort is still celebrated today by men and women alike. It was also the Husky which made life possible for the ethnic North Americans living in the Arctic by hauling heavy loads, including pulling sleds of individuals and families over long distances as they searched for food and shelter. So far, there are no reports of anyone other than a few Liberals, being hypnotized by an androgynous cartoon depiction of a Husky, having more frequent or alternative sex with strangers than they normally do.

  • Michelle

    $100 says this gal hasn’t been on a date in long, long time if ever. Something tells me she sees every potential suitor as a potential rapist.

    • camnpat

      You can bet she went through some guidance course in her first day of college where she was told that every man around her was a likely rapist. (The same courses where women are told to be aware of rape…. in rape free zones).

      • TexSizzle

        If every man is a potential rapist, then every woman is a potential prostitute. After all, everyone of each sex has the equipment necessary for the corresponding activity. But has anyone ever been informed of the latter half of my first sentence on these leftist campuses?

  • Jedd McHead

    Everything is somehow tied to rape… or racism… or climate change… or whatever. We’re becoming a nation of thin-skinned, bed-wetters waiting for an excuse to have our delicate feelings hurt.

    And, yes, I realise what I’ve written in probably insensative to people whose skin is irregularly thin and/or have issues with unintentional (involuntary) discharge of urine during the night. Deal with it.

  • MoonDogii

    I would say this is stupid, but to politically correct, I’ll just call it dumb!

    If the logo scares you: wet your pants, vomit on yourself, or talk it out of being all rapey. That’s better , isn’t it?

  • George Murrey

    So instead of going to school and great a great education this girl found time to be offended by a……wait a minute, it’s a resemblance of a husky, not the real thing. I wonder if the pres called her to see if she’s all right. If she was my daughter, I’d say I just called the school and she needs come home immediately.

  • waltzingmtilda

    Raise your hand if you read the girl’s letter.

    I did, and while I have an extremely hard time taking college feminists seriously, she doesn’t actually say the logo is pro-rape. She quotes the women’s b-ball coach as saying the logo dog conveys competitiveness and is fierce and not to be messed with (I’m paraphrasing) and then talks about how she feels UConn athletes are above the law and display similar characteristics. It’s really not the same thing.

    • BAW

      Okay I read it. It’s so much nonsense it’s hard to nail down exactly what it is she is trying to say. But she is, in fact, relating the new logo and her perception of male aggression being allowed on campus. It’s more of the same nonsense that is driving young men away from college. It’s the same nonsense that allowed the Duke Lacrosse Hoax to last for so long and do such damage to some fine young men and their families. I don’t care what she meant say, what she was trying to say, or if anyone misunderstands or misrepresents what she said, cause it was just stupid. And I’m a woman.

    See, she is a woman of “the glass is half empty” genre. The new logo could be interpreted as a female wolf…a mother of cubs…..a protector of her children or self…and the eyes could be saying “Go ahead…Try and mess with me…or my children…I’ll tear your throat out.”

    I wonder if the Husky logo promotes rape rape or just ordinary rape?

    What is sexist is to assume that this Husky is a male. It could just as easily be a female Husky. This is like assuming a picture of a Pit Bull is that of a male Pit Bull. To assume that a little cute kitten is a female kitten is just as sexist.

  • Gary Freeman

    Liberals will get offended by anything. I think the thing Liberals are offended by that really pisses me off is the fact that liberals are offended by the Constitution

  • dmar003

    What the hell!!??? I know what you should change the logo with a soft cuddling puppy. This is about the same thing that happened in ND. The NCAA told the college that they had to change their logo. The school’s logo was the Fighting Sioux. They had to take the word “fighting” out of it. The NCAA said it was too agressive.
    They have had the name The Fighting Sioux as long as the college has been around.
    If you don’t like what the college has for a logo, so what, get a tough skin and get over it.

    I doubt the Husky would even do that. Dogs tend to have standards.
