YMCA = Young Man's Christian Association. This article says the public is confused about this title. Sadly I must agree.
The YMCA hasn't been for young men only for many years. That can have it's good and bad points. So I can see why that would be confusing.
And much of any Christianity the organization still has is hidden from the public. In the opinion of many that has only bad points. Another entity founded on Christian principles/teachings feeling like those needed to be covered up or just forsaken because of opposition by non-Christians or just ignorant ones.
So, the YMCA shouldn't be called the 'Y', but instead the 'A' for Association... because that's the only word from the original name that still fits. Or maybe that isn't good either since there's 'ass' in the word association.
