    Your hyperbole doesn't dismiss the facts. Do you know a lick about Native American history? The warrior reference is a high compliment.

    Your claiming social harm does not actually demonstrate social harm. When do you think you'll get around to actually doing that?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So what? It's still a stereotype and marginalizes those left out. It doesn't matter whether a stereotype is "positive" or negative, it marginalizes.

    Stereotypes do not harm society?

    I suppose if it was the Washington Gays, depicted as pansies, you'd be ok with that stereotype too.

    So, in the interest of consistency and fairness, you also openly and actively advocate for changing the name of the Minnesota Vikings. After all, Vikings were a well-known aggressive and war-like society, and Scandinavian pacifists might be marginalized and left out, and by your own admission in your other quote in this post, we just can't have that.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Nope, not particularly. And somehow, I doubt that you'd find a sports team depicting themselves as limp-wristed prancing gay boys, that doesn't fit with the sports model, but it wouldn't actually affect society at all. It's just a sports team.

    You confuse fact with opinion.

    If we take your comments at face value, and do not consider the troll potential, in effect what you are arguing for is the complete elimination of ALL sports team names. Just call them by their city and leave it at that. Even naming a team after an animal, Lions as one example, might marginalize someone who would view that as stereotyping lions.

    I know, right? God forbid we should want to highlight a positive aspect of something.
