    > After years of informal discussion, a group of students recently requested that Chancellor Thomas F. George consider changing the UMSL mascot to something more gender neutral. UMSL adopted the Rivermen as its mascot in the 1960s. A committee consisting of students, alumni, faculty and staff is reviewing the issue.

        So what is the current nickname of the UMSL women's teams?

        The Lady Rivermen?

        Classic.

        At the newspaper I worked at in Florida all the female teams that we covered automatically had "Lady" as part of their mascot --- this was high school, we were a small paper.

        So therefore you had "Lady Tornadoes" ... How big is a male Tornadoes penis?

          I was going to say Riverpersons.


          But also acceptable would be UMSL Androgynously Non-denominational Body of Water-Working Union Members.

            It's bullshit. Why can't they change their name to something less offensive like the Fighting Sioux?

                    Attached to the e-mail was a survey of names people would want...

                    I voted none of the above, put that in the suggestion box, and for comments told them "this is fucking stupid".
