I guess I'm keeping my 5 bucks. That's good, because I'm going to need it to buy more red Solo cups for the party I'm throwing, which I expect to be attended by many people I don't know, who drink all of my beer, don't say "thank you," and then file a lawsuit against me! Wait, maybe I better keep that $5 for attorney fees....
For the win!

There is a refreshing amount of un-wokeness in these comments. You all have made me think there may yet be hope for our culture.

I agree with the guy who recommended concentrating on the hard work of developing new groups - it's a lot more difficult than sitting on your ass while you lob bombs at other people's efforts, but it'll actually create the kind of results you claim to seek.

I'm not gonna lie and tell you that I have zero misgivings about fraternity culture, but it's absurd and offensive to even suggest that they don't have right to exist and do things their own way. If you don't like them, don't join them or attend their parties. Do the work to find or create the type of organization or social event you'd like to attend.

Bumping because it's pre-Covid, and parts of some posts are worth a read and application into greek situations that have occurred since last November.
