8 inches: Is this the thread where I whine about how lame and secretly gay fraternities are?/Was in a house and those memories are still my favorite and most fun.
drewogatory: 8 inches: Is this the thread where I whine about how lame and secretly gay fraternities are?/Was in a house and those memories are still my favorite and most fun.No, this is the thread where frat boys call haters "just jealous".
Alebak: They say they're banning pledging but I don't believe it. If they actually gave a shiat they'd have stopped or at the very least SERIOUSLY rethought the way they did things after the first death. They didnt, so they're completely retarded, and are probably continuing pledging in secret, and will get caught when someone else dies.I dont get the mind set, when every year theres at least one story coming out of someone dying or almost dying and whatever school/group they were with gets hit with a big scandal, but the other fraternities/sororities just go "Who cares! LET IT RIDE!"Its baffling
skinink: Why "Pinto"?"WHY NOT?!?"

Molavian: All of you Farkers are hating on a tradition you know nothing about, you all must have been pencil-necked pizza-faced geeks in the Chess Club, fraternity brothers get access to more top-shelf pussy than you could shake a stick at, and the relationships you make in the Brotherhood will last you a lifetime.
buckler: CTRL-F "top-shelf pussy"Not found.This will never work.
PapaChester: While we were a tiny chapter with no house or anything like that, hazing just wasn't an issue. Party people were "big brothers" to party people, academics to academics, social leaders with social leaders, etc.And the chapter was better for the diverse mix. I hope the TrueGentleman Experience helps guides bigger chapters yet doesn't stifle those still in line with the principles./phialpha
CygnusDarius: buckler: CTRL-F "top-shelf pussy"Not found.This will never work.Glad I'm not the only one./There were no frat houses in the college I went to//Architecture School, however, has an inhuman, cruel, and mind-vending ritual///The five-day all-niter
FDR Jones: Not trying to advocate for fraternity life or anything, but this is the text of The True Gentleman, btw, some of you guys might actually like it. It was not written with the fraternity in mind, but IIRC as a response to a request from a Baltimore newspaper for readers to submit the definition of a true gentleman:The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceedsfrom good will and an acute sense of proprietyand whose self-control is equal to all emergencies;who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty,the obscure man of his obscurity,or any man of his inferiority or deformity;who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another;who does not flatter wealth,cringe before power,or boast of his own possessions or achievements;who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy;whose deed follows his word;who thinks of the rights and feelings of others rather than his own;and who appears well in any company;a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.John Walter Wayland, 1899
ladyfortuna: The college I just graduated from couldn't ban frats because they're part of SUNY (SUNY allows it everywhere else, I guess), but the private Uni that is literally across the street banned them several years ago because there were a few incidents that resulted in injured/dead students, within a couple of months. It's a small town with very little else to do, so I think if the SUNY school could have legally gotten away with it, they'd also have banned them.For all that, the student activity groups were amazingly good at putting together events to keep people occupied./so glad I lived off campus though
SpiderQueenDemon: And what is the opposite of the term 'sausage-fest'?
