New Sport Team Mascot Battle: The name 'Stallions' is too sexist... Update: New Petition to Reinstate Stallion Name...

Daily Gator, Weasel Zippers and Breitbart noted this story: apparently the name Stallions is too sexist for a sport team mascot Kentucky.  Last time I checked they had a lot of stallions in Kentucky.

Update: Heat Street is noting that there is a petition to reinstate the name Stallions, gaining 10x the votes of the repeal petition

While the decision reeks of sexism, the word stallion itself is not sexist at all. Rather, I think they mean the name Stallions is too male.

Why not the Cows? Cows is a good name...

Alternatively, in the spirit of compromise, what about naming this sport teams the Geldings? Or perhaps they should choose an animal that can change its gender over its life time.

Then again, going with classical references such as the Amazons might be a more fitting name. They can create their own Themyscria in Kentucky.

Wow. If Stallions are too triggering, I am guessing it is only a matter of time until 'Speedy' the Geoduck (gü-ē-ˌdək) gets dumped by Evergreen State College:
