Y Not?

Say goodbye to the YMCA readers! The Young Mens Christian Association announced a major change about to go underway at their recreation centers across America. 
One of the nation’s most iconic nonprofit organizations, founded 166 years ago in England as the Young Men’s Christian Association, is undergoing a major rebranding, adopting as its name the nickname everyone has used for generations. 

“It’s a way of being warmer, more genuine, more welcoming, when you call yourself what everyone else calls you,” said Kate Coleman, the organization’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer. 
Hopefully this doesn't upset too many Christians who choose to use The Y because of that one important word in the organization's name. Sorry Village People, now your song really is obsolete.
