A high school changes its mascot because parents think 'Cougers' is offensive.
Some parents of students at Corner Canyon High School in Utah forced the school to change the students' mascot name coice because they believe "Cougars" is inappropriate. The word doubles as slang for a woman who is attracted to younger men.
"Corner Canyon Cougars" was a cool name. Instead, they're going with their fallback option, the "Beavers."
The new name is the bland "Chargers." Why name your sports teams after an AC adaptor? http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/01/20/utah-school-rejects-cougar-mascot-to-avoid-offending-older-women/
