Fark_Guy_Rob: I like to make fun of frat guys as much as anyone else but....let's be reasonable about it.

It was a party with a raging bonfire.  If anyone other than a frat was holding it, nobody would be hating on the hosts.  There is nothing to suggest that members of the frat tossed the bottle in the fire, or that they condone such activity.  In fact, if it was the frat's alcohol and someone tossed it into a fire, I'd bet a lot of people would be pissed off.

It's really sad that a girl got hurt - but I'll rage in the general direction of whomever threw the bottle.  And truthfully, it was probably some other drunk, underaged, freshman or would-be student checking out the campus who didn't have experience with alcohol, wasn't thinking at the time, and would never intentionally do such a thing.  So, while I'm not supporting his or her actions - I'm not willing to condemn frat members everywhere for the actions of one person who may or may not even be in the frat.


Your well reasoned articulate comment is not welcome in this frat bashing thread!

If you wish to comment in a frat thread (let's face it they are "bashing" threads) in the future you MUST advance one or more of these negative stereotypes:

1. equate membership with buying friends
2. claim all members are gay
3. claim all members rape women (even though they are all gay)
4. claim all members participate in hazing
5. claim that all members suffer alcohol poisoning
6. claim all members commit sexual harassment
7. claim all members are douches
8. claim that the only reason they exist is to party and get drunk

You will get extra points if you add one of the following:

1. Make a demand that all fraternities be banned, or outlawed
2. Question how fraternities can exist "in this day and age"

You will get "super" bonus points if you add one of the following statements:

1. That is why I never rushed a fraternity or associated with any fraternity member
2. That is why I went to a school that didn't have fraternities

Well, they -are- the only college organization created just for that specific purpose. Most everyone else goes to academic institutions to, you know, learn stuff with books and things.
What 'Greek' organizations are still doing being allowed to exist in a learning environment are beyond me.

 Other than subsidizing enginering students (by paying those of us with high SAT scores to pledge and then promise to never show up, in order to keep their minimum average scores up so they don't get booted), I see no good they do at all.
 It certainly does not offset the vandalism, added security expense, and environment of fear and sexual harassment they add to the college environment, nor the personal cost to all the rape victims and victims of assaults.

We are not condemning a frat based on the actions of one idiot throwing a bottle, we are condemning them for collectively refusing to administer first aid and throwing the girl out of the party to cover their own butts.

That is the frat as a whole, and that is exactly the thinking you see in frats. That's worthy of condemnation.

The college I went to holds a vote every year about having a Greek system and every year they vote it down. I really like the concept of a Fraternity. I like the ritual and the networking and the all you can eat buffet of Early Education and Psychology majors from the sororities, but goddamn if 90% of the frat boys I ever met didn't fall into the stereotype. I just don't think I could spend that much time with the "popped collar" crowd.

If there was a real deal adult fraternity like the Freemasons that wasn't nothing but old men, I'd join in a minute.

Thank you, sir. That was very considerate of you.

WienerButt: Why was a high school student at a frat party?

/dnrtfa
//SAE '08


why are any girls at a frat party?  So the guys can attempt to molest them.

There are two types of women at a frat party:  1 - the girls that are forced to go for social reasons (boyfriend, sorority sisters, etc).  They show up, have a crappy time and leave at the earliest possible hour.  You can try to get them wasted in an attempt to molest them, but it ain't gonna happen.

2.  the frat sl-ts.  these are the chicks that can down a 12 oz bud in under 4 seconds.  they can drink many underclassmen under the table and are the ones that will have sex with you (should you desire it) as long as you are the last guy standing.  They typically don't pass out until after sunrise....so, you had better pace yourself.

some of these chicks are the ones that get molested, trains pulled on them (voluntary or not).  Seems to me that the later in the morning it is, the less likely ms vodak realized that things only get worse after dark

/wishing her a speedy recovery

//frat boys will likely lose their charter

No - I just didn't consider it particularly noteworthy.

Everyone involved was playing their part...some of it is their fault and some of it is 'our' fault as a society for making ridiculous laws and turning a blind eye, except when something bad happens.

The girl was underage and (almost certainly) consuming alcohol.  She shouldn't have been at the party.  But, realistically *80%* of HIGH SCHOOL students admit to drinking.  I don't know of ANYONE, personally, who waited until 21 to drink.  I was a huge nerd and most of my friends were, and I didn't start really drinking until Sophomore year of college - which was still well before 21.

It *is* part of the college experience.  And every university I've been to is aware of this.  A huge part of keeping students showing up (with their government loans) is giving them a 'fun' environment.  So yeah - you can't go into the bars - but you can get a cup at the frat parties and occasional large house-party.  But those are 'against the rules'.

Even the police were happy enough to let us stagger home drunk, so long as we were quiet and not in the street.

What do people *really* think happens at recruiting trips that span the weekend?  You get a tour of campus, some stupid flyers, and go party.

And 99.99% of the time, everything goes mostly okay.  People get drunk, have unprotected sex (or hookup with a fattie, or a member of the same sex, whatever...), smoke weed, maybe even try a harder drug.... and life goes on.  They call it the 'college experience' and it's good fun.

But this time, someone got hurt.  It wasn't directly the fault of the frat and it wasn't directly the fault of the girl....but they'll both get screwed over for it.  If the girl is an athlete or scholarship winner - she stands to have it taken away.  It's unlikely, but entirely possible, that she could lose admission to a university for her underaged drinking (even though, at least, 80% of high school kids admit to drinking before they graduate).

And the frat, who everyone on campus knows welcomes big parties with lots of alcohol without looking too closely at IDs is going to face fines, possibly lawsuits, or being thrown out of school for doing exactly what the university and local police expect them do - both of whom benefit from the role the frats play in the community....

Is it 'right' to ask the girl who is ALREADY injured to wait for an ambulance a bit down the road to try and avoid getting in trouble?  No, not really.  Is it understandable?  Absolutely.  If the laws and university code of honor crap wouldn't punish them, I'm sure they wouldn't have wanted her to leave.  But as an underage drinker she should be aware of the fact that SHE IS A LIABILITY.

When I was underaged and people gave me liquor, I would go out of my away to avoid them getting in trouble for that act.  That girl wanted to be at a party with drunk, stupid, college kids.  They made it possible for her to get what she wanted.  Hardly seems sporting to turn around and try to get them in trouble for it.

Wrong. I would hate on any group of dipshiats that does what the frat boys in TFA did.

Throwing a bottle of vodak into a bonfire is stupid.

Kicking a severely burned woman to the curb in the hopes of not getting into trouble is borderline evil.
