So it’s about that time for colleges where it’s move in day and everyone’s pumped for the impending ruckus syllabus (or chillabus) week is about to cause. With promiscuity at an all time high and responsibility at an all time low it’s not hard to find yourself overly excited if you’re in an 18-22 year olds shoes around this time. However for Old Dominion’s Sigma Nu the party appears to be ending early. The fraternity has just been suspended for…hanging signs?
“Crass, sexually suggestive banners “welcoming” freshman women to a Virginia college last week have sparked outrage and led to the suspension of at least one of the school’s fraternities.
The white signs draped over the balconies of an off-campus Old Dominion University house read “Rowdy and fun, hope your baby girl is ready for a good time,” “Freshman Daughter Drop Off” and “Go ahead and Drop Off Mom Too.”
The “O” “D” and “U” on the first sign were highlighted in blue, while the other letters were black.”
C’MON MAN. Really? This warrants a fraternity to be suspended? It’s no wonder comedians like Jerry Seinfeld don’t want to perform at colleges anymore because everything now has to be so damn politically correct, it’s sickening. I don’t even think the signs are that funny or cool in the first place but they definitely do not warrant a suspension or really much backlash at all. It’s their house, can’t they hang what they want? Freedom of speech or something? It’s not like these signs had blatant curse or explicit words on them. If they said something along the lines of “can’t wait to bust a nut all up in yo baby girls grill” then I could see the problem, these are only suggestive. If Americans are going to have a rough time with everything that could have a sexual connotation or other meaning then we are really, really fucked. If that’s the case then they should no longer be allowed to call Oreos with twice the amount of filling “Double Stuff” because there is clearly a sexual innuendo happening there and no kids should be exposed to such crass marketing. Also I’m calling for the removal of everything “brownie batter” too as brownie is clearly an offensive term aimed at African Americans. And the batter part? Brownie BATTER? With all this police brutality going on I don’t get how shit like this stays on shelves of American grocery stores, we need to take a stand dammit! But for real, I’ve seen comments from parents saying how if they saw these signs while helping move in they would make their daughter go home. I have a better idea, why don’t you just politely remind (you really shouldn’t have to do this either) your daughter of how she was raised and trust that you did a good enough job as a parent instilling strong values so that she could make the decision on her own to not go to a place hanging sexually suggestive signs. Or is 18 not old enough to make such decisions? Food for thought.
