Texas A&M Upsets Fans With New Sexist 'Aggie War Hymn'

Texas A&M's sexist "Aggie War Hymm".

@tadousay

Texas A&M football held a special event for its female fans earlier this week.

The Aggies had a "Chalk Talk" that allowed for women to meet the coaches, play some football and get ready for the upcoming season.

One aspect of the Chalk Talk included a rewriting of the school's fight song, Aggie War Hymn. The rewrite was geared specifically for women and, unfortunately, included some fairly sexist undertones.

A Texas A&M fan in attendance, Tonia A. Dousay, took to Twitter to voice her displeasure with it.

Here are the real lyrics to the song.

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!

First Verse
All hail to dear old Texas A&M
Rally around Maroon and White
Good luck to dear old Texas Aggies
They are the boys who show the real old fight
That good old Aggie spirit thrills us
And makes us yell and yell and yell
So let’s fight for dear old Texas A&M
We’re going to beat you all to
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Rough Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A&M!

Second Verse
Good-bye to texas university
So long to the orange and the white
Good luck to dear old Texas Aggies
They are the boys that show the real old fight
“The eyes of Texas are upon you . . .”
That is the song they sing so well
So good-bye to texas university
We’re going to beat you all to
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Rough Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A&M!

Perhaps there's an explanation for the rewritten version of the song at the Chalk Talk event, but we haven't heard it yet.
