I've read academics on other history-related blogs claim they're not even sure what political correctness is. They typically respond that way when someone in their field is accused of PC due to a silly, shallow, and immature approach to history. Of course, they're either lying or extremely ignorant. But, just for those folks, here ya go:
Students at a new Utah high school are facing disappointment after their choice for a new school mascot was rejected for one of the strangest reasons possible: Board members deemed it might be seen as offensive to middle-aged women.
BTW, my wife, who I think would concur with me that she is middle-aged, graduated from a high school which had the "Cougar" as its mascot. The Cougar does not offend her, but stupidity does.
