According to The Huffington Post, a Yale Fraternity initiation prank has outraged the campus women’s group inciting the Frat President to issue apology for misogynistic comments.
The Frat boys chanted: “No means yes, yes means anal” and “My name is Jack, I’m a necrophiliac, I f— dead women.”
Members of the Yale Women’s Center called the chants “hate speech” and “an active call for sexual violence.”
Let me get this queer: some frat boys acted inappropriately during some initiation? What!? That’s crazy! This is absurd.
Dear Yale Women’s Center, Frat boys do stupid things. Lighten up, get a freakin’ sense of humor, ok. Those frat boys weren’t promoting rape, they weren’t promoting sex with dead people; they were being humiliated as part of an initiation. If they had dragged a cadaver into the lawn and took turns gang banging the decomposing body, then there would be cause for alarm.
I am a huge proponant of knowing the power of words, but in this case I find that the reaction was blown out of proportion.
What do you think?
