Let it go Badge.  Can you make the claim that you've never used the old standby Pur-dont?

Wisky?

I can't speak for others, but I don't use Wisky in a pejorative sense (not like those folks who use Pur-don't). 
Just see it as shorthand for Wisconsin.

Don't they put Sconnie on their own gear? 

I thought that's what they liked to be called.

I agree with bw above, it is shorthand for me.  I work with numbers badge, not letters.  Letters are not my friends.

Not by a UW license. The school has nothing to do with it.

Those are ass clowns.

After googling around, I can't find any evidence that "Sconnie" is a pejorative. 

Nothing but Wisconsin fans, proudly sporting it on their clothing, using it as the name of their blog, or their storefront that sells Wisconsin apparel. 

What, is it supposed to be like the N-word, where only Wisconsin fans are allowed to use it?

Why the F google around?

Just trust me when I say that alumni HATE it - especially the older ones. Maybe the snowflakes like it - some of them anyway. Take that for what it's worth.

I'm not really the type to accept a singular unverified anecdote as undisputed fact. 

Plus, I'm having way too much fun researching this...

I do not want this to dip into the political world, but from my understanding of the concept, a Snowflake is someone who is "an overly sensitive person that doesn't take criticism well" or "is too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own."  IE, someone who is short doesn't want to be called short, but instead prefers "vertically challenged" or somesuch.

Since you / the older alumni are the ones that are objecting to this name, doesn't that make you the snowflakes? :sign0151:

Yeah, I mean I can see why Vagers would be objectionable. Hence, I never use it.

And to a lesser degree, Whiskey and Pur-don't; although I hadn't really thought about either in that light until this thread. But Sconnie?

I don't even know what that means. I've simply seen pics of sweet little adorable Wisconsin co-eds sporting it on their undergarments, and assumed that it was some sort of interesting and clever abbreviation of the word Wisconsin.

If it really were objectionable, then google ought to have some modicum of evidence. Hell, if I googled hard enough I could probably find an example of some dude out there somewhere who is afraid that eating too much Wisconsin Cheese would turn him into a Wisconsin Cheerleader.

But there does not appear to be a thing about older alumni objecting to the term Sconnie. Interesting.
