Researcher and author Autumn Williams addresses the use of "Squatch" in an excellent piece at her blog Oregon Bigfoot: Am I the only one… -
I've thought of writing something about this as well in the past; the use of the term always struck me as insipid, jokey and patronizing. It put Sasquatch into a "big dumb cool dude but still just a over sized goofy animal" category. That's how it seemed to me. I'm also aware of school marmish tone that some might perceive in my complaints, but tough cookies, little mister. Anyway, Williams writes eloquently, giving us some history and insights into the use of language, and why it is that "Squatch" is just so . . . not right.
