I wouldn't blame them, would you?

As much as I dislike Indiana, I'd rather be homeless there than (upstate) New York, that's for sure. The 'winter' is a lot shorter for one thing.
 
2013-04-21 12:25:00 AM
Well, yeah, it's more fun' to be homeless in, say, southern California or Florida than northern New York, Maine, or Minnesota.

Unless you migrate. Do the homeless migrate?

I meant I don't blame the homeless. And from everything I've ever heard, yeah, they migrate, southern states in the winter or something like that.

Why do fraternities and sororities always have to have themed parties?

My (non-sorority) friends threw a trailer-trash party, it was much classier than a homeless party.  We even had a themed cake.

I would dare say that the homeless in Hawaii are the kings and queens of the homeless world.

In Canada the homeless migrate to the west coast.

Understandable. I'd much rather sleep under a bridge in damp 36 degrees Vancouver winter than in -30 Winnipeg.

This just in:  College students often exhibit poor judgement!

It snowed in Bloomington last week, so not so much.

It's sad that people can't have fun anymore without someone getting all butt-hurt over it.
 
2013-04-21 09:03:01 AM
As some one who has spent some time on the street, If a local sorority threw a party like this, instead of protesting, I would just bring all my homeless friends to the party and drink all the alcohol and eat all their food while saying that we just had better costumes than they did. Add to that the fact the place is full of drunk sorority  girls,  this screams opportunity.

My sister lived there for over a decade, trust me it's not nearly as cold as where I live usually.

No shiat.  The theme of our parties in college were pretty much, "Don't puke in the kitchen sink night" or "Does that kid behind the couch have a pulse night."
 
2013-04-21 09:06:05 AM
The sorority claimed that they were trying to call attention to the plight of the homeless in Bloomington and goad the rest of the Greek community into actually doing something since they feel the plight of the homeless is being ignored.

Don't be too hard on these girls.  Their approach and the net impact on homelessness in Bloomington isn't much different than the combined efforts of social do-gooders and government programs of the last 50 years.  These sorority sisters probably have a bright future in non-profits and Congress.

I think if there's one thing the internet has taught us in the last decade, it's that trying to be funny by throwing themed parties is sure to get you pariah status (and maybe a defrocking by the university/national chapter).

Now, if they'd made a sizable donation to the local homeless shelter as well, they'd at least have their hearts in the right place.

I live there currently, when I am not abroad.  While it isn't as cold as Maine (where I lived previously), it sure ain't a homeless person's paradise.
 
2013-04-21 09:13:54 AM
Shocking news update:

People with the poor judgement to pay to be part of the sorority/fraternity system also exhibit poor judgement in other decision making.
 
2013-04-21 09:16:48 AM

ongbok: Why do fraternities and sororities always have to have themed parties?


Because at their core, frats and sororities are just groups of people paying money to make friends, like some kind of sad singles mixer. In such a situation, inevitably a lot of people in these groups have nothing in common with each other and would never be friends normally, so they have to come up with these forced socialization mechanisms so that everyone in the group dynamic can find their role and connect with someone in the group, or at least have enough peer pressure applied to them that they'll fake it.

There as in Bloomington?

/somebody the other day asked if they smelled as bad as real hobos.  I figure it was rather fishier.

Same reason clubs and bars have theme nights.  You're paying someone to decide for you how you're going to have fun.

ongbok: Why do fraternities and sororities always have to have themed parties?


Because they're fun.

When you're in a frat, EVERY night is don't puke in the sink night. If everyone's in costume, you know it's a party

DemonEater: There as in Bloomington?


Yup.

//God, I hate Little 5 weekend

I'll admit, I am not sorry to be out of town for it.

College kids do a lot of weird 'drinking' themed things.

I was in a fraternity in college and I never understood beer pong or pub crawls!  You're at a bar, drinking.  Why leave that bar to go to another bar to drink!

But then again, as Peter Bailey once told me "I was born older"

/boys & girls & music, why do they need gin?

Not at all. They could be carried.

I wasn't in a frat but we had theme parties, there was the Keg Theme, the 5 12 Packs of Icehouse Theme, the we're broke and can only afford Milwaukee's Best theme, and the who the hell brought the Mickey's Fine Malt Liquor? theme.

Given the fading role of US universities as gateways into the overclass, the sorority sluts may be meeting the homeless on the way down...............

"You've gone to the finest school [sic] all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but know you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say, "do you want to make a deal?""

Why the sick tag? When I was in high school we had hobo day during spirit week before homecoming. It's in Indiana though so maybe it's just us.

Hobo's are loveable little tramps from the Great Depression waking the train tracks with a can of beans tied up in a rag on a stick, you are free to mock away.

depends on where you are in Indiana.  The northern slice.(Gary, Hammond, South Bend, etc.) gets as much snow as upstate NY, for the same reason (lakes).

Thank you Jezabele, with the Boston bomber in custody I wasn't sure how I was going to maintain my moral outrage for the day, and you delivered. These girls are obviously worse than Hitler and should be put in stocks in the town square and shamed for 20 years. This just in, teenagers are a$$holes, always have been.

(CSB) I was in 5th grade when Challenger blew up, and of course we made all the requisite jokes... Need Another Seven Astronauts... You feed the dogs ill feed the fish..... Almost 30 years on I think, "Well, that was a dick move, but hey, I was 10" but now I wonder if I should call up Jezebel. In sure there is a scowling 26 year old Vassar-grad staff writer who would like to write a breathless article about how horrible I am.... Patriarchy.... Jingoism.... White privilege..... Something Something......

Wow a little too PC these days.

I suppose we should get out the old eps of Hee Haws and remove any references to hobos, digitial remove the town drunk from Mayberry...

College students are not the only ones who have themed parties...

The ironic thing is that they're too dumb (or self-righteous) to realize that this type of manufactured outrage hurts their cause. A few months ago I decided to try to stop being the chauvinistic misogynist I always was, so I tried to gain a different perspective by reading some of the more popular "feminist" sites. While I learned a lot about myself and how some of my views were hurtful, I've found that today's "modern feminists" are nothing but a bunch of histrionic, whiny, self-righteous bigots who seem more concerned with generating page clicks than they are about equality or social justice. There's nothing more pathetic than a modern "crusader" who thinks she's going to change the world by "battling Patriarchy".

2013-04-21 10:14:11 AM
  Seems like there was a sorority that did a Mexican theme party a year or so ago...and it drew a little heat.
