Parents in Farmington are petitioning to change the name of a new high school mascot out of concern that when their children cheer from the sidelines it will sound like they're shouting about male anatomy.
Recently the school announced their decision for the school's mascot: the Phoenix. Everything was fine and well until a group of parents practised their updated chants for the sports team. A Utah dad is demanding a local high school change its "inappropriate" mascot - not because of the mascot itself, but because the name sounds ever-so-slightly similar to the word "penis".
This prompted Kyle Fraughton to launch a petition asking the school board to change the mascot, reports KSL.
Fraughton started a petition to change the name, writing, "We were horrified to hear that the phonetics of the word Phoenices are far too close to the word penises". As happened to my neighbors and me, high school kids will take a quick trip to Google or WordHippo to learn that Phoenices is a plural form of the word.
"We don't see anything about the plural version of phoenix having anything to do what's going to be happening at the school or on the football field", said Williams.
"With his scenario playing out, there will be a never ending barrage of references to male anatomy directed at our children as they participate in any kind of sports against other schools", he said. He pleads for the school distract to change the "well-intentioned, but potentially unsafe choice". That will just be the beginning as it doesn't take much imagination to figure out how vulgar this could get.
Farmington High School in Utah isn't scheduled to open until the fall of 2018.
