Emory University’s Greeks Respond to ‘Faggot’ Dragged Out Of Party: We’re Not All Jerks

For the same reason all gay people don’t deserve to be called faggots and dragged out of Halloween parties, Emory University’s Greek organizations want to remind you not all fraternal organizations are places of bigotry.

      Fucking greek assholes… (pun intended)…

      “We’re not bigots, but…”

      if you’re a fucking fatty you’re not getting into the sorority.
      if you’re a fucking queer you’re not getting into the frat.
      if you’re a fucking Jew or black you’re not getting into either a frat or a sorority.

      But they’re not bigots.

      They should all die in a fire.

      @FGSC:

      Before you rush off to start the fire, know that I rushed openly gay and got a bid–and my fraternity experience was great. My house also did (and continues to do) YouthAIDS fundraisers in partnership with orgs like the campus GSA and the local AIDS task force. I was neither the first nor the last openly brother, and while this comfort-level with gay brothers was rare on my campus (and moreso on others), my house got very little flak for it. When we did, my brothers were adamant in their defense of gay brothers.

      Right across the quad was a house that did almost precisely the same thing as this Emory chapter, and the “faggot” in question later joined my house! You won’t get an argument from me that all kinds of classism, racism, sexism, and homophobia are built into the Greek system–that doesn’t mean good people can’t make positive use of it.

      I was friends for a while with some queen who was in a frat when in college, and he had become a republican, all that stuff he so desperately wished would lend him status and a notch or two above the herd. I never went to one of our mutually attended get-togethers without seeing him make a colossal ass of himself with his general disregard for the fact that the people around him were in fact, people. It was like he was hypnotized by the stupid rays coming from the White house back then or something. When I went to college, I just went to college. That was about it. Self aggrandizement as a way of life just seems like a huge waste of time and it only undermines your joy in life, so why bother?

      Emory is behind the times. For at least 10 years, fraternities/sororities at many other universities have put in non-discrimination clauses in the groups’ charters and the pan-Hellenic councils have been working with campus LGBT organizations to make sure that the frats/sor.s are more inclusive.
      Better late than never but it shouldn’t take this kind of event for Emory to catch up.
      p.s. i’ve never been a member of a frat, but my ex was!
