lol reading an article on jezebel (…) about ms america getting kicked out of her sorority for hazing and then they have these blatantly fakeass urban legend stories from people who have never interacted w sororities beyond being like “im too cool n edgy for that conformist shit lol dumb blonds!” in college. im not saying hazing doesnt happen at some schools (i or anyone in my chapter were literally never hazed at any point) but its… not… like… fraternity hazing where you do gross shit… i bet anything it was pressuring a pledge chug a beer or do a scavenger hunt.
literally forcing a new member or potential new member (you cannot use the words “pledge” or “rush” or you will get in trouble, like potentially kicked out if its documented) to do anything outside the normal, nationally regulated guidelines of what you have to do to get initiated is strictly not allowed. not saying people dont break these rules but like have someone who was in a sorority write the article next time? who can stop you from publishing blatantly false information? i mean its jezebel but like still… journalistic standards?
