It’s obvious that these guys aren’t class acts. They are more than likely to fill the stereotype that frat guys are so eagerly trying to gain. Kobe had to change his number after his allegations. You can change your American Eagle shirt as many times as you want, it won’t change the person wearing it.
This is hardly the end of the line for these slogans. As school is beginning around the country, more and more are popping up. The Guardian recently published an article stating that “numerous studies have found that men who join fraternities are three times more likely to rape, moreover, women who join a sorority are 74% more likely to experience rape than other college women and that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted in four years at away at school.” Sounds like a culture to be proud of. This brotherhood isn’t what it used to be.
As the commonness of these incidents increases, more and more women are coming forward and more and more men are being reprimanded. It’s a disturbing reality to leave in, however it’s the one we are in. The past generations of frats should step in and raise the repercussions of future brothers crude behavior…. because after all… your fraternity is something to be proud of.
