And they've got a right to be. Within hours, s of the initiation ceremony were ed to YouTube.
Not surprisingly, the Yale Women's Center had an especially strong reaction to this incident. In an sent out to various campus organizations, the Women's Center condemned the actions of the DKE fraternity, Wives seeking sex TN Sneedville 37869 the chants a form of "hate speech.
While Columbia may not have a history of such obscene behavior among fraternities, it is no exception to the culture that demeans and objectifies women.

Just a few years ago at the Take Back the Night rally, some fraternity members reportedly made catcalls toward the marchers as they passed the brownstones of Frat Row.
As cringe-worthy as the DKE incident is, it's nothing new for Yale women. During pledging season of the fall semester, the Zeta Psi chapter at Yale photographed their pledges posing in front of the Yale Women's Center.
Yale isn't the only institution with a questionable fraternity culture.

I was warned of the dangers of going alone to frats by my first-year RA, and cautioned by my upperclassmen friends against visiting certain frats on campus with "sketchy" reputations.

Fraternities add to our campus and neighborhood, whether through their community service or philanthropy. They can provide young men with a valuable sense of community that extends far beyond their four years as an undergraduate. But it is incidents like the DKE initiation that bring forth the Ladies looking sex Silsbee undertones that still linger within frat culture.
In light of recent events, we should re-evaluate our own frat culture. Why are first-year girls warned of the dangers of Frat Row? Why do so many sexual assault and rape cases occur inside frat houses?
The reputation that fraternities have not only harms women, but also hurts men. I don't believe that all frat brothers are misogynists, but controversies like the recent Yale incident only further fraternities' negative image. The DKE brothers at Yale have attempted to correct their mistakes by apologizing to the campus community, admitting that their actions "were disrespectful, vulgar, and inappropriate.
While DKE's apology was necessary and its participation In need of snap chat sluts fellowship the forum appreciated, it doesn't compensate for the fundamental transgression.

Our campus is incredibly active and aware, especially when it comes to issues of human rights and politics. But I have never seen college students so averse to aligning themselves with any movement than with the feminist movement.

But even with all of Snowville UT wife swapping resources at our fingertips, why are we still so afraid of associating ourselves with feminism? Why the caution?

Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that Sexy girls dating Barwon Heads 37 percent of the female students surveyed said that they would call themselves feminists.
