The Pi Kappa Phi chapter at North Carolina State University has been placed on interim suspension pending an investigation into the contents of one of their pledge books, which was found at a restaurant near campus. The book was chock-full of handwritten derogatory notes towards women, as well as some racially charged comments.
Here are some excerpts from the book:
“Be kind to the whales because they’ll lead you to the dolphins.”
“The only reason I don’t hook up with fat chicks is I’m afraid I’ll love it.”
I think every guy here can relate to that last sentiment, and the dolphin line is legitimately funny. Not seeing much of an issue here.
“That tree is so perfect for lynching.”
You had to go there, huh? It was so promising, and then you threw us all a racially charged curveball.
“It will be short and painful, just like when I rape you.”
“If she’s hot enough, she doesn’t need a pulse.”
Fuck. What happened to all those good, cheeky fat girl jokes? That’s your wheelhouse, kid.
“The written comments and quotes reported earlier this evening are offensive and unacceptable,” Pi Kappa Phi Chief Executive Officer Mark E. Timmes said in a statement. “These statements are inconsistent with the values of Pi Kappa Phi and will not be tolerated. We have instructed our students to cooperate fully with all investigation efforts.”
Guarantee this pledge is long gone, and for what exactly? Writing a bunch of faux pas statements he doesn’t believe in for the sake of being what he thinks is funny.
Word of advice to you kids out there: Have the impression that everything you say aloud will be recorded and everything you write down will be read by the masses. The greek community would have far less problems if we all had this train of thought. Also, stop being generally shitty..
