#1 "The army lacks knowledge about heraldry."

No sh*t.

More feminism gone stupid. I remember one of our VMAQ squadrons getting rid of the playboy bunny logo after tail hook, I could almost see the logic though still thought it was lame P.C. crap. In the sweede case; I can only imagine the time wasted discussing a logo's genitalia in staff meetings. And these dudes used to be the vikings? Now clearly the viqueens. Oh well, the way the weak ass sweedes are going in 50 yrs they'll give the lion a scimitar and an abaya - but don't name him mohammad.

#2 A lion without a penis is either a female lion, in which case the logo is still "sexist", or it is a castrated lion in which case it is most probably accurate.

#6 The lion now has a Mohawk with mullet. No that's offensive to Native Americans. It just has the mullet.
