Wait. So you want me to pay a bunch of money to live in a big house decorated in hot pink and smells like hair spray and share a bathroom with a bunch of bulemics– but first ridicule and embarrass myself to prove I’m worthy? Um, what?
I just don’t get this whole concept. All these crazy bitches preach community and sisterhood and the bonds born out of pledging. Last time I checked, standing in your underwear in front of other girls while they point out your flaws didn’t form any kind of fucking bond. It takes humiliation to a whole new level. (This ACTUALLY HAPPENED to girls who were pledging.) It makes me want to kill some Delta slitches. The fact that girls are CHOOSING to go through a week of pledging with insane requests and demorlaizing demands is appalling. Girls! Come on.
Also, I keep hearing you can’t even drink in the sorority house. Tell me again the perks of this? Sororities also have rules as to how you can and can’t behave. WTF? This idea that people (YOUR PEERS!) can decide things like, what’s appropriate behavior, how much is acceptable to drink, how high off the floor you can dance, etc. It’s fucking ridiculous. I know a girl put on probation for doing a shot at a fraternity party. What?! Stories like this make me want to go apeshit on the people who think this crap is normal.
Just a quick note to all the ladies entering college: Skip the sorority. Seriously. The cooler, more fun chicks are playing sports or on the newspaper or just chilling in their off-campus apartments playing cards and sipping a beer. You don’t have to lick gum off another girl’s shoe to make real friends.
And a quick note to all the dumbshit girls MAKING the insane and demoralizing demands: Just stop.
