October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the month, you’ll find countless pink things and hear sayings such as “I heart boobies” or “Save the ta tas.” These types of things will be found everywhere across the United States, and it’s great, because raising awareness for breast cancer is a great thing.

Rutgers University is one of the places where you’ll see a lot of Breast Cancer Awareness decorations. That’s because each October, the Greek houses will decorate their houses pink for Zeta Tau Alpha’s “Think Pink” campaign. The house that is determined to be the most pink wins a dinner with the girls. Sounds harmless, right? Show a little support for a good cause, and win a dinner with the girls. Well one fraternity, Theta Delta Chi, is in some hot water for the signs they made. Check out what these guys put out.


Looks like a good display if you ask me. Unfortunately, because everyone has to constantly be mad about something these days, someone took a photo, posted it to Facebook, and let the cry babies in.

Here are just a few of the comments that stood out:

Comment 1

So now they’re perpetuating rape culture because they want to support breast cancer? Say what now? That’s the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard. For those who don’t know, “I heart boobies” is something created by the Keep A Breast foundation, not fraternities.

Comment 2

Sounds like someone didn’t get a bid.

Comment 3

Dang these boys for writing “save the ta-tas!” They should be hung for the whole world to see, right? It’s not like save the ta-tas didn’t already exist as a charitable organization for breast cancer.

It was probably an idea that some creepy, misogynistic dude came up with. What’s that? It was founded by a woman? Welp, guess I’m wrong.

The resulting outrage led to the Dean of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs to email the fraternity to remove the signs. They complied with the request because despite what these commenters think, they aren’t terrible guys. So my question is this: Why are people so outraged over Theta Delta Chi for these signs? Just a thought, but what if the concerned citizens spent as much time raising awareness for breast cancer as they did complaining against fraternities?

Look what happens when this exec board has to deal with its school’s “PC police.”
