Here are a few things that happened in college this week. You may have missed these stories because you are not in college.
A little creepy
Members of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity at James Madison University are catching a little heat after one of the more sad and creepy letters ever penned fell into the wrong hands. See below to view a vibe that you never want to put out.
Power ranking freshman babes? Okay. Including their dorm room information? Easy, bruh. In case you’re thinking of power ranking the women of your office, you should probably avoid putting pen to paper, and definitely avoid prefacing anything with “Now this is a little creepy thing to do but necessary so let’s keep this low key.” I felt weird typing that.
RIP Kiss Cam
Full disclosure: I hate kiss cam. I hate watching people, usually undesirables, making out in public. Even the sound of two people sucking face makes me cringe. So when I’m at a ball game and the kiss cam fires up, that’s usually my cue to go drop 20 bucks on 2 draft beers. Well, thanks to a letter to the student newspaper, Syracuse has axed the kiss cam forever.
During the Sept. 12, game between the Orange and Wake Forest, letter writer Steve Port said he witnessed two incidences on the kiss cam in which women indicated they didn’t want to be kissed. Yet, the men nearby kissed them anyway to cheers from the crowd.
“The instances I witnessed at the game encourage and condone sexual assault and a sense of male entitlement, at best. And they are an actual instance of assault, at worst,” Port wrote in his letter.
“No one has the right to forcefully touch someone be it a hug, a kiss or a violent rape.
I adamantly insist that Syracuse University student government, the chancellor, the athletic director, etc. review what happened last weekend and seriously consider the ramifications of what they are encouraging,” he said
Steve Port is PC, bro. While I applaud his effort to rid the world of kiss cams, I’m not completely on board with his reasoning. Whatever. I’ve read Machiavelli, so I know that the ends justify the means.
Okay, this is high school, but it’s still great.
This was titled “Video Proof That UCLA Kappa Is Full Of Dimes.” I can’t disagree with that.
Maniac Hockey Brawl
Yeah, high school again, but you have to think that many of these guys will end up in college at some point. Bold move going after the ref. Kids are just out there going wild..
