One woman declined to have her hands photographed because she feared that her fingernail polish might be recognized.

NYT photog: "Hey, uh, can I like take some pics of your hands?  It's, uh, for...an article."

Sororities and fraternities are the dumbest traditions ever. All you ever hear about them is the hazing, drinking, partying, sexual assault, and other abuse. I'd sooner join the catholic church.

"New recruits are impossible to miss on campus. Everyone wears a slightly different version of the outfits recommended by the Alabama Panhellenic Association. Those include shorts that aren't ripped, frayed or too short, and "nice" dresses that aren't too tight. The organization's guidebook for 2022 is 111 pages long. It also suggests women wear colors that don't show sweat."

Y'all going way too damn far out of your way to seem cool.

Secret Hint - y'ain't cool.

I do feel bad a bit for the impressionable young folk deluded as they are to think they need to belong to these cults.

"The documentary would "explore college life, sisterhood, and all the joys and complexities of what it means to be a young woman today, following several women from the University of Alabama," the producer wrote."

Before participating in rush, PNMs sign a contract with the Alabama Panhellenic Association, which oversees the process. They agree not to disparage sororities or sisters and not to record what happens at parties.

Are they joining a sorority or a Home Owner's Association? JFC.

I'm so, so happy my University banned 'Greek Culture' entirely with one simple rule:  All clubs/organizations on campus must be open to everyone without regard to sex, religion etc...   So, no Freshman hazing beyond being 'encouraged' to dress up funny and go shine shoes for Cystic Fibrosis (Shinerama) for a day and showing up for mixer dances and pub nights....

I'd throw shade on it all, but spent most of college playing Rugby, where you get most of that stuff but also have to turn up every Wednesday afternoon through winter to have a bunch of 200lb dudes stomp on you for an hour or so, which seemed like a good idea at the time but in hindsight was a tad stupid.

Anyway, glass houses and all that shiat.

For people who are reaching up in society greek life is a big deal for their future. It isn't what you know, it's who you know.  Sadly many kids will spend a ton of time and money trying to belong.

When Marina Anderson was accused of recording herself inside a party and told she was being dismissed from rushing any sorority, she was so shocked that she offered to have her body searched for a microphone.

I personally volunteer my services to do a complete and comprehensive body search on prospective pledges for these sororities.
Let's put these potential issues behind us.

I tried joining a couple of fraternities when I was a freshman.  Things didn't work out, but I ended up on the rugby team during my junior year, and I guarantee that was a better experience.

/We had better parties.

Belonging to a sorority is important. For example, when you're in your 30s and tell me about your sorority on our first date I can split the check!

Also, it lets every man know you're undatable trash because you willingly got bullied because you thought that was a way to be popular, so we all kinda know after your first marriage to Trevor or Kyle or Jackson fails you're *really* mostly interested in retaliation or revenge so you'll prob put out quick.

Women that joined sororities are destined to be single for the rest of their lives after they implode their first marriages, is my point.

I'd never seen this and so I looked her up. Here's an interview from a few years later. Spoilers: she was still a raging twunt.

Highlight: 
Speaking of BroBible [where she works as their 'resident Woman'], how was your original email perceived by guys around you? Did people in frats reach out to you amid all the sorority craziness?
All the guys that I know that read it took it a lot better than the girls. Guys would come up to me at the bar and be like, "Oh my god, you're that girl," blah, blah, blah, and just be really, really excited and pumped, like, they thought I was actually deranged or insane, but girls were a lot cagier about it because they thought I was just this really raging biatch kind of person that was screaming and angry all the time. So guys were more excited whereas girls were more hesitant.

Mine too.  She joined the US Navy instead.  Secretly very proud of her FU.  Roll Tahd.

CSB I was talking with one of the locals who gave me an address.  I wasn't being a dick, swear!, but I could not understand when she told me "I" street.

I knew she was saying a letter, but couldn't figure out which one because of her atrocious accent.  I had to finally ask her to use a word that started with that letter to figure out what she was trying to say.

"Ahhhhhhh". " r like robert?" "No, ahhhhhhhhh" "A like apple"?    The sad thing is I am fluent in three languages but not Alabameese.

My niece half-assed it through h.s. and they tossed a full scholarship her way. LOL.

I mean if it was 1970s or 1980s Wisconsin h.s. grads, you're talking about being some of the best in the nation, especially from public schools in Madison.

2018 WI h.s. grads are .... well. Some of them know how to code! Wow so very broadly educated. Many prepared for life.
