Crew Team’s “Check Out Our Cox” Shirts Fail To Amuse

Check our Our Cox

I dunno, I think “Check out our cox” is a pretty funny slogan for a men’s crew team. (The person who directs the boat is called the coxswain or cox for short.) But a student who witnessed the Tuft’s University men’s crew team wearing their “Check out our cox” shirts to a Spring Fling dance was not amused, and filed a “bias incident” report of sexism. The team was then suspended from rowing by their own coaches, which would have kept them out of an important championship game. Fortunately the suspension was lifted by the president of Tufts — correctly assessing that people were perhaps being a wee bit too sensitive. Please, let the preppies have their penis puns! [Boston.comTufts Daily]
