...and uses the word "bitch" in the URL. Oh wait, its okay because its a woman that runs it? I guess? Man, I really hope I don't have to take a wokeness test soon because I most certainly will fail the what is okay and not okay section.

Skeen what you are really calling for is the end of a society. I used the best source for the definition. The one the most people use. The one that is accepted in real academia and makes no reference to color of your skin. If you want to throw out the dictionary, great, but you are...more

To far? Maby
Does my opimion have any weight given I don't belong to any kind of tribe? No

Also if you look up the names you might be shocked to find how many are "offensive" based on the information Yeti was given.

Is this a N with an a thing where only they can use it it?
Many of the tribal groups use the word tribe. Maybe this person who started this petition needs to attend the cultural sensitivity training they have for people who will be working with tribal nations. They use the work...more

Hello Yahmon,

I'm not "clearly" speaking to you. I'm replying to the myriad of comments such as yours. You can find them on facebook, Twitter, Instagram (actually, scratch that, Yeti disabled comments on the post) and PinkBike.

First I'll push back on the idea the word tribe is...more

Wow, kudos for finding a way to fit the words oppression, privilege, freedom and vindication all within three short paragraphs. In all seriousness, this is the wokest thing written on Vital maybe ever.

Yeti changing a name changes NOTHING for Native Americans. Go ahead, call any...more

I'd just like to remind everyone bikes are still cool, yeti is still a great company, and being critical of something doesn't mean we "hate" each other.

Sparring intellectually is okay. We used to do this all the time. I'd like to bring it back.

Just a friendly reminder despite...more

I’m a bit confused by your response. I insinuated I was going to find a Yeti (the creature).

I find it both ironic and sad that you just marginalized every commenter here and on pinkbike that has a different opinion than you while claiming to stand up for “vindication” of a “marginated” group.

This is in response to Yahmon’s link to myself and another user. I’m not sure why I’m being told the website is unable to take my response as a reply.

Who exactly was offended? Care to cite any specific sources? Maybe blacks should stop using the N word, I find it very offensive.

I see your point, but 'Tribe' has been in used in Europe for centuries as well as other parts of the world. From all I see it originated in Rome /Mediterranean area. This particular word isn't anyone's to 'own'. Yeti is a private company and is free to change as they see fit, but this isn't appropriation anymore than a restaurant selling Italian dishes , Hispanic dishes, Thai ,etc outside the 'home' country.

I'm offended that someone is offended by something that doesn't offend me, and I'm not a ROBOT who's easily offended.
