No, not Congress or Isis or Ebola or global warming—but drunken women.
This comment appeared, and was quickly deleted, on the Forbes website. You know, that bastion of banker-boy privilege and free-market entitlement.
The author of this idiotic statement was one Bill Frezza, president of the Beta Foundation, the house corporation for the Chi Phi fraternity at MIT. He came up with the classy title: “Drunk Female Guests Are the Gravest Threat to Fraternities.”
“In our age of sexual equality, why drunk female students are almost never characterized as irresponsible jerks is a question I leave to the feminists,” wrote Billy Boy. “But it is precisely those irresponsible women that the brothers must be trained to identify and protect against, because all it takes is one to bring an entire fraternity system down.”
That’s right. In Billy Boy’s feverish brain, drunken women are going to falsely accuse frat boys of rape. These boys, of course, are all innocent victims of the women doubtless too drunk to unhook their bras, much less unzip the jeans of their hapless victims. Billy Boy then added that “drunken hookups or anger over a failed relationship” are what lead to false accusations of rape.
I can’t even go into the depths of the mindset capable of blaming the victim who is, in Billy Boy’s scenario, drunk as a skunk yet a harridan out to ruin frat boys’ lives because she felt guilty about guzzling the Bud. Has it dawned on him that some of these women might not actually be drunk—they might just be victims of sexual assault by drunken men?
Don’t any of these guys go to college to learn anything? Aside from how to prey on vulnerable women? Guess not.
