I feel for those kids getting the short end of the stick down at Duke. According to the CNN report that I just watched, at least one of those poor bastards wasn’t even at the house when the strippers were present – yet he still got arrested. Of course there was another report on MSNBC that said this kid was a real dirtbag, but hey – welcome to today’s media! No one quite actually reports what’s going on…they give you their spin on what’s going on!
In any event, I think that it needs to be stated very clearly that whatever went on in that house is not the same thing that you’ll find in other off-campus houses, apartment style dorms, or fraternity houses. It’s obvious that my fraternity and the “fraternal cause” are very important to me, so I don’t want to come off as completely out of it here.
But when I see “commentators” defending whatever took place in that house (let’s just categorize it as a stripper party) by saying, “Well these things happen in fraternity houses all the time,” it makes me sick.
Apparently we’re stuck in 1969 and all that ever goes on in fraternity houses is drunken beer games and naked girls running around. I ask these commentators – have you seen the girls on campus these days? If they’re banging hot, then they’re probably a rich “Daddy’s Little Princess;” if they’re anti-establishment, then they’re probably not going to a fraternity house in the first place; and if they’re lesbians, then chances are they would rather watch a chapter house burn before going into it!
And when you do find those rare, great girls – they’re not stripping at fraternity parties! Yeah, sometimes fraternities get strippers (DEFINITELY not “all the time”). But to suggest that an accused rape situation is commonplace for fraternities – what type of stupid, bonehead, asshole, moronic statement is that?
Get a fucking clue, idiots.
