FTFA: She said the Penn State-Altoona pledges would get calls at 2 a.m. demanding that they gather for a meeting at the sorority president's apartment as soon as possible.

"They would test us on one of the sorority's prayers or songs, and if we got it wrong they would call us fat or ugly until we cried," Joanne said. "So many of us cried in front of them."

Is it already time for the "Shocking College Hazing Expose" again? I could swear we just did this.

Now Killer Bees, there's a classic that I haven't seen around in a while.

If only there was an option to not join a sorority.

Poor babies. Group hug.

No, seriously, did you know you can just farking LEAVE situations like this? Heaven knows your cellphone doesn't leave you hands for more than 30 seconds at a time, just call the cops.

If a group of people are making you absolutely miserable as a condition of joining them, how do you think it's gonna be when you live with them full time? Morons.

FTA: "experts say, has triggered increasing violence among women that can lead to depression and self-esteem problems as the hazers take cues from reality TV or try to emulate the behavior of male fraternities."

Unnamed experts blaming males for problems in an all-women group -

Check.

My college girlfriend's "pledge daughter" was referred to as the Fraternity Cum Dumpster. She wouldn't think twice about having her tits ranked.

Having actually pledged and joined a sorority. This shiat happens. It happens a lot. I have no clue why. There wasn't anything too bad but someone calling me a fatty isn't really gonna crush my self esteem. Especially when I was playing sports and working out 5 times a week already. Oh noes I still have some fat on my thigh and they circled it with a sharpie. They wrote FAT on my stomach. The Horror!

I just wanted easy access to parties and better housing on campus.

We would have lineups and have to recite stuff and answer fraternity questions. If you got them wrong you had to eat from the Apple of Knowledge (a large Bermuda onion).

These chicks are weak.

All the frat houses at Arizona State were (still are?) dumps. Even compared to the nearby apartments and freshmen dorms. I never saw the appeal. I went to all the parties I could squeeze into a weekend, and girls were abundant.

The article talks about all of this as if it is a bad thing.

I thought college was supposed to prepare you for life in the real world.

""I received an e-mail last week in which a girl told me that her sisters said she had to either take a hit of cocaine or use a dildo in front of them," Maxwell said."

Why is this an either/or situation?

LOL...I'd rather eat the onion than have to deal with this:

FTFA: "If the pledges moved at all, Joanne said, one of the four Penn State Altoona sorority members would shove their heads into the concrete bricks until they had lumps or bruises. "

Sheesh. Didn't read the full FA. That's bad.

Can't say we were ever physically abused. Though I admit to getting a few bruises during our Pledge Double Dare contest. It's not easy racing another pledge down 4 flights of stairs in ski boots.

I loved pledge period. It was a riot.

And if you had a legit reason to opt out of an activity, no one said boo. For example, the pledge class after mine had a guy who was a recovering alcoholic. Obviously we weren't about to make him join in pledge activities that involved drinking.

Put the cocaine ON the dildo. Two birds with one stone, my friend.

The "boob ranking" is just another example of how libruls can't let the Bush administration go.

I was going to post the pimply-faced kid from the Simpsons exclaiming "I need closure on that anecdote!" but it looks like someone ruined pic posting for us in this thread.

You can't try to buy your friends and then walk away from them. It doesn't work that way. Besides, the type of person who would join a sorority very probably is the type who defines herself in the context of a larger group.

Give me all the coke and they all dildo themselves ... that's a party.

roughly 35% of internet porn is based on sorority hazing

please, won't somebody think of the kittens!?

wait, no, don't think of the kittens, the hell with the kittens

Being a new member (the non-hazing friendly word for pledge) was the best part of being in the sorority. You don't have to deal with the drama of arguing which color of blue would be best for an event t shirt. And you don't have to pay for any of the shirts or events that you're required to have or attend.
You just show up to parties, look cute, learn some songs and cheers and ritual stuff, cry a lot, and get presents all the time. It was great.

I was hazed more at cheer camp and when I joined Civinettes in high school.

The Civinettes hazing was actually a blessing. We had food smeared all over us to gross us out, but getting egg and mayo in my hair and then sitting in the sun for 2 hours was better than any salon treatment. My hair was never so shiny and soft after I finally got to shower.

From the article, which you didn't read:
"All the sisters and pledges turned on me," Joanne said. "My car was keyed. I was getting threatening text messages every day. The second semester I couldn't sleep because I would have nightmares."

Cops aren't going to shiat to stop your car from getting keyed.
 
2010-02-17 04:32:05 PM
But despite the switch, Joanne said, she is still receiving hateful Facebook posts and messages from the young women she once called sisters.

Oh, God no. Not facebook!

"Boob ranking" always gets automatic greenlight.
 
2010-02-17 04:43:18 PM
My god college kids are way too sensitive these days. You have emotional scars from being yelled at, getting nasty texts and facebook post? And if you are rushing a frat or sorority and they are beating on you or treating you in a way you don't like just leave. If you stick around and let them do it to you don't complain about it later. As for the chick that was given the choice of the dildo or cocaine if she stayed and made a choice she deserves everything she gets. Seriously if a group of same sex people told you to masturbate in front of them I think it's time to leave and never look back, unless that is what you are into.

You know you can still link pictures for boobie ranking right?

I joined a sorority my freshman year. I was also in Navy ROTC. The sorority was sweetness and light, but we got the shiat hazed out of us in ROTC.

Yeah, I know... cool story.
