Skip to comments.University Of Wyoming Profs: ‘Cowboy’ Slogan Promotes ‘White Heterosexual’ Masculinity
Posted on 07/11/2018 7:46:13 AM PDT by blam
Professors at the University of Wyoming say the schools new cowboy slogan promotes white heterosexual masculinity. Expanding upon the University of Wyomings Cowboy mascot, the school recently adopted a new slogan The World Needs More Cowboys. But some professors are up in arms over the choice, claiming that it promotes white heterosexual masculinity.
Christine Porter, associate professor of kinesiology and health at the university, is leading the charge against the new slogan.
The history of cowboys, of course, is much more diverse than that racially, and presumably also for sexual orientation, Porter said in a comment. But the image what the word cowboy means off the top of almost everybodys head in the U.S. is the white, heterosexual male.
Porter explained that she thinks the slogan might potentially ostracize students who arent white and male. I care most about our university having a slogan that makes all people feel welcome here, Porter added. I also care about us not embarrassing ourselves as an institution across the nation. However proud this state is of our cowboy tradition, it just does not translate outside the Rocky Mountain West.
Chad Baldwin, the schools communications director, says that the criticisms of the new slogan will not stop its full adoption. The criticism of the slogan as being sexist, racist, and offensive simply does not hold water in the context of the overall campaign, Baldwin said. Cowboys is the universitys official mascot and nickname, and the upcoming campaign casts it in a way that we have demonstrated is effective in catching the attention of prospective students from outside Wyoming.

prof connotes leftwing promiscuiousness along with intellestual narrow ness.
She needs a little cowboying to set her mind right. Or perhaps, she should move to the crappy streets and queers of San Francisco.
Wyoming pollution should be a capital crime
Yes, I suspect that the good citizens of Wyoming would certainly hope so.
Of course, this form of begging the question is part of the standard Leftist Academic tool bag for leading susceptible students away from family & traditional values.
I thought of brokeback but they were shepherds. To get that out of your head, it is disgusting, just tell satan to get behind you. Works every time. Think of what is true and honorable and your brain will naturally dissolve what isn’t used. :)
The cowboys I know were also Marines so it’s easier for me.
Quite true. In fact, one of our more popular gubernatorial candidates this fall is a black cowboy by the name of Taylor Haynes. He happens to be a mechanical engineer and an M.D. He’s also a very strict constitutionalist. He’s getting my vote. Laramie is such a silly progressive town because of the idiots at the university. It’s a tiny blue speck surrounded by a sea of red!
The University of Wyoming? Wyoming? Are there any colleges or universities —outside of Hillsdale —that are not infected by leftist PC nonsense?
They need to change their team name to Prairie Chickens. “The World Needs More Prairie Chickens.” Or would somebody object to that because it excludes other species? I’ll bet prairie chickens are overwhelmingly heterosexual and cisgendered too.

That headline should read: “University Of Wyoming Profs are a bunch of fags”
Historically, over one third of the real cowboys were black.
Dont tell oklahima state that pistol pete has to be mulatto and wear a tutu.
Great movie line.
She just thinks that cowboy is a “steereotype.”
She looks like the south-end of a North-facing horse.
Now days you almost have to be.
I always heard the term Cattlemen and thought that was correct and Cowboy being some kind of derogatory slang term.
...and there was Saddle Tramp, cowpoke, Rancher, drover...
