Campus Progress Iconography

Found this picture in the “About” section of the Campus Progress site.

Thoughts: 1) Is the guy in the vaguely Mayan, Jim Henson-style costume a metaphor for campus conservatism? Seemingly scary and/or huggable creature but in fact a pasty white guy who parts his hair on the side? 2) Is his horrified expression from a) having his secret identity exposed by her kick of justice or b) unfortunately catching a glimpse the very intimate regions of this avator of liberalism? Given his line of sight, I’d go with b. 3) What the hell are they thinking?
