The new logo for the University of Connecticut’s sports teams
is a terrifying husky dog that calls to mind images of sexual assault, says one student.
The new logo was unveiled last week, receiving mixed-to-negative reviews from UConn fans who preferred the older, cuter husky dog.
But one student went much further, criticizing the new, meaner logo for being a pro-rape symbol.
In an open letter to UC President Susan Herbst, self-described feminist student Carolyn Luby wrote that the redesigned team logo will intimidate women and empower rape culture.
