    Sorority Council at Duke University Bans Events With Male Groups

    “we’ve come to see that many wide concerns within our community stem from relations with all-male organizations”

    Can they do this legally? Male groups would come under immediate fire if the roles were reversed.

    Campus Reform reports:

    Duke sorority council bans events with male groups

    The Panhellenic Council at Duke University voted to ban chapters of member sororities from hosting “mixers” with all-male organizations, vowing to place chapters that violate the rule on social probation.

    The Duke Panhellenic Association “unites women across 10 chapters” of various sororities and is the “largest unified body of undergraduate women at Duke University.”

    According to a post on the Duke Panhellenic Association’s Instagram page, the Panhellenic Council voted to ban mixers with all-male organizations to focus on women’s empowerment. The post states that all-male organizations cause concern amongst other groups due to gender dynamics and the objectification of women.

    The post defines mixers as “exclusive events between organizations.”

    “Panhellenic organizations originated in creating safe communities for female-identifying individuals to come together and support one another. However, we’ve come to see that many wide concerns within our community stem from relations with all-male organizations, such as lack of accountability for perpetrators of sexual assault, environments that fuel unsafe gender power dynamics, and a social hierarchy that objectifies women,” the post states.

    Chapters voted to ban both co-hosting and attending mixers that include all-male organizations, as well as “blanket invites” for any events. “Blanket invite refers to invitation extensions directed at organizations such that affiliation with that organization indicates an automatic invitation to an event,” the post explains.

    Chapters are still allowed to co-host charitable events with all-male groups, and all-women’s chapters can still hold events with each other and co-ed organizations.

    The mention of “objectification of women” makes it clear that their problem is not with “all male organizations” but with males in general.

    This is, of course, completely socially acceptable today. The only male one is not allowed to have a negative opinion of is Joe Biden.

    Tough, self-sufficient women, ready for that corner office or command position right out of college, but frightened of men. That’s sure who I want in charge, yessir!

    What about all-male gay groups? Are they exempt from this prohibition?

    Basically, they are saying that women are incapable of making personal decisions with regards to men, so for their own protection, they must be prevented from making “poor choices.” Much like those inane classes the Armed forces force soldiers to attend. They keep insisting that women are incompetent and inferior to their male counterparts. Before long we are going to be back to being required to have chaperones just to leave the house. Talk about living in the dark ages….

    Maybe they could teach their members about danger signals people and places exhibit so that they can make decisions to avoid them, and also how getting knee-walking drunk can render one incapable of seeing these signals until its too late.

    This is the same path other portions of society take when they want to defund the police, when just obeying the law and using other behaviors typical of the civilized portion of society would insulate one from virtually all unintended contacts with the police… but, no, can’t do that. Not cool.
