Critics say the use of pink demeans women, perpetuates offensive stereotypes about women and homosexuality, and puts the university in the uncomfortable position of tacitly supporting those messages.

''I want the locker room gone,'' law school professor Jill Gaulding told a university committee studying the athletic department's compliance with NCAA standards, including gender equity.


Wow, people need lives.

I don't understand how it "demeans women, perpetuates offensive stereotypes about women and homosexuality". Is it simply because some people relate the color pink to this? Is it just as offensive if the dean decides to wear a pink tie to school?

I'd really hate life if I was so bothered by such petty stuff such as this.
