"Cavesluts and Dinowhores" posters deemed offensive

Ski and Board Club admits mistake

The Ski and Board Club at the University of British Columbia has received a warning after advertising of a prehistoric-themed beer garden called “Cavesluts and Dinowhores” offended a student union staff member, who then complained. Posters pinned up around the Student Union Building showed “busty, scantily clad woman leaning against a dinosaur skull,” according to The Ubyssey, which has a photo. Ski and Board Club president Charlott Johansen addressed it. “It wasn’t meant to be at all degrading, but I guess we didn’t think it through enough,” she said. The posters appear to have been effective nonetheless—300 attended the Feb. 3 event.
