How about Pedophileville?
I’m quite surprised that it took them this long to ‘get offended’.
Young People Unlabeled by Gender Social Constructs Town
Why not Mans Country ?
It worked for Barry and Rahm.
The gay men’s contingent wondered if this means that boys can’t be brought in.

Lyrics to a Rush song could apply:
I grew up in Chicago, on the north side of the city, just a few miles from that neighborhood. We knew it as “Lakeview.” Later it became known informally as “Boystown,” but first in a derisive way, because of all the homos there. I don’t like to call it “Boystown,” but for a different reason than why they are changing it.
They should rename it, “TransGayAndLesbianFreakstown,” or something similarly inclusive.
.... Just rename it Gay Town .....
