What do you think of the slogan 'grow a pair' for Western's athletics department? Do you think something else

would be better?

“I think it is sexist.”
Sophia Lynch
senior, psychology
“It sounds like it is directed toward guys and not to girls. It would be nice to see something that’s more related to both men and women.”
Leland Page
sophomore, anthropology and creative writing
"‘Grow a Pair’ is an old school term that has been offensive for a while, if they are using it for a new slogan I would recommend against it. It shouldn’t be gender specific. Maybe like ‘Health Up!’ or something like that.
Zei Zhang
junior, sustainable development and project management and Chinese
“‘Grow a Pair’ seems pretty gender biased. Especially here where we promote diversity and gender sensitivity and I don’t think it is a very appropriate slogan. It should be changed.”
Tyler Rasmussen
senior, business
“It’s kinda funny for guys, but I don’t know how I would take it if I was a girl. Depends on who you are. I definitely think they could have picked something better.”
