It is unfortunate that OP"s "learning and psychiatric disabilities" apparently compel him to provoke negative responses in a sad attempt to get any kind of attention. At the risk of provoking him further, I reiterate the many earlier suggestions that he seek further counseling. The suggestion is kindly meant. Best of luck to you, and good-bye.

I written a longer post, but accidentally deleted it, so that is all.

You know, if the OP's posts weren't somewhat anti-fraternity, I'd be forced to ask the question:

TEITY?

IU sorority recruitment is already done. I find it totally plausible.

Look I'm going to go ahead and say this because I've been thinking it for awhile:

Sammy, if this actually happened to you or your friend I'm sorry. Maybe I'm being naive, but I can completely see this occurring if someone whose social skills were not their strongest suit trying to rush a group with some not so kind members. I can see that happening, sadly. But the fact is that they have this capability to be this unkind, there is no reason for you to want to join their organization. Clearly it won't bring you the kind of friends that you need. I would suggest some professional counseling and I don't mean that as an insult, I go to one myself. They can be very helpful at listening to you and helping you deal with some of the issues present, both surface level and underlying. After that maybe try joining another group, one with an open membership policy, to make some friends.

Being in a Greek organization does not automatically make your friends for life, the seeds of friendship need to be there first. Therefore you may have better luck in an environment where friendship can evolve naturally and over time, not in the pressure cooker of rush. I'm sorry things did not turn out the way that you'd hoped, but trying to bully your way into a private social group won't work. Period. My advice is try to pick up the pieces try to grow from the experience. Bad things happen but we can't let them define us, we can only choose our actions wisely to make us better people in the end.

Okay, first off: Brown v. Board of Education (which is a case, not a "law") or any other case that is based on constitutional rights only applies to the government (state or federal). Only the government is bound by the Constitution, so only the government can violate someone's constitutional rights. Public school. Yep. Private organization. Nope.

So, if you're dealing with a private organization, you've got to find some other law that says a private organization cannot discriminate against you for whatever specific reason. The ADA won't get you where you need to be: It prohibits discrimination in employment and discrimination by public entities (schools, government offices, public transportation, public parks, etc.), public accomodations (hotels) and commercial facilites (restaurants, stores, movie theaters, etc.). It does not apply to membership in private organizations.

And by the way, asserting (correctly) that the situation you've described doesn't violate the laws you think it does does not equate to being "supportive of discrimination of all kinds." This forum is not that stupid.
I nominate this for best thread of 2012...so far.
