YMCA Changing Its Name, The Village People Not Amused

First Sci-Fi Channel, then Radio Shack, now the YMCA is changing its name to a shorter, hipper The Y. As you can probably understand, the Village People is "deeply dismayed":

"We are deeply dismayed by today's announcement from the YMCA that they feel a name change and a rebranding are in order after 166 years," the group said in a statement released this morning.
"Some things remain iconic, and while we admire the organisation for the work they do, we still can't help but wonder Y."

I always thought it should be changed; it stands for the Young Men's Christian Association. A little out of date, don't you think?

To be honest I am surprised they didn't change their name much earlier. I would epect that having a name which is also the name of the "homosexuality anthem" in the often anti-gay US is deadly for business.
