School system's debated new logo back to the drawing board. Does it resemble female genitalia?


Left, the proposed logo presented to the board. Right, the draft preferred by Board Member Roy Rabold.


Tweaks are on the table for the proposed new logo for Fayette County Public Schools. Still split on what the logo looks like, the Board of Education decided to hold off on a final vote at their Feb. 4 work session.

At question is what the logo looks like to different people. It is intended to be a diamond representing excellence and a flame symbolizing knowledge, but there is a sentiment among some that the finished product looks like female genitalia.

Superintendent Dr. Jody Barrow said the debate comes down to personal perception.

“When you look at logos, everybody has a different perception,” he said. “I feel like we’re at a point where we’re ready to go. I know there have been some perceptions of maybe the design looking a little different. Clearly that’s not what we see. We see something brand new, clean, and fresh.”

4. Thinking of the joke, the punchline of which is-

"Me Doctor? You're the one with all the dirty pictures."

5. Exactly.

I'm not that crazy about either logo, but my opinion really does not count here.

2. Hell, the one on the right is the one that would

concern me if I cared about such things.

A note to the graphics designer: whatever you do, DON’T make your next revision look like a taco.

6. Sometimes people reveal more about themselves than they intend when they open their mouths to speak.

It's a little abstract logo. It could be a flame. It could be a plant/flower. It could be a nematode. It could, according to this article, be a vulva. I dunno, my first impression was "flame."

Question about the guy who did the logo redesign and removed a little white bit: what anatomical structure did HE see that white bit as when he saw female genitalia in this logo? What did HE think he was removing from the logo? The reason I ask is: was it the clitoris? Does he support clitoridectomies? What the hell is he unintentionally saying?

7. In the line of duty as a peds nurse practitioner, I examine...

...female genitalia from birth thru adolescence on a regular basis. This is ridiculous.

9. No but I'd think it was a gas company...

I see the flame but there's nothing that says school system to me

10. I don't think any of those board members have had oral sex with a woman receiving.

Am I wrong?
