What message do we send our sons when we insist that a silhouette of a building on a college logo is too "phallic"?

It is an accepted tenet of modern feminism that school dress codes restricting what girls wear "contribute to slut-shaming and rape culture" because they "tell [girls] that they will 'distract the boys' and that their attire is 'slutty' or 'unladylike.'" This message "teaches young girls that their sexuality is wrong" and that "their own bodies are inherently shameful."

Those same feminists would do well to silence the loons in their community who insist that a silhouette of a building on a college logo at Brooklyn College is inappropriate because it vaguely resembles a penis. They are not alone in spewing the lunacy that images generally resembling a penis are somehow threatening to women.

If it is wrong to tell our daughters that the female body is inherently shameful, why is it acceptable to tell our sons that the male body is inherently evil?  It should not be, of course. The question is not even worthy of serious debate, and the vast majority of Americans who are not immersed in "gender" issues would have no difficulty in coming to the same conclusion.
