The other day one of my good friends from high school, who currently attends William & Mary, sent me a quite angry text with a link to a very interesting article titled, “William & Mary Sigma Chi Sends Out Most Bizarre And Disgusting Email About Vaginas Ever Written.”
So I then continued to read the email that was sent out by a member of the university’s Sigma Chi fraternity chapter, and let me tell you, my jaw dropped and blood boiled while doing so.
This young man’s point to his mass email, was to persuade the entire fraternity of Sigma Chi to “Seize the moment, stuff the box, and put the neglected pussies that haunt my dreams to rest” and to also initiate his, quote “community outreach program” as, “Save the Sluts.”
Not only does this ignorant boy refer to a vagina as “the box” and females as the “lesser sex,” he also states that his fellow “brothers” need to realize that life is good, simply due to the fact that there are plenty of “sluts to f***” because “sluts are everywhere.” This mindless individual then continues to state in his email,
“That vagina needs you. Never mind the extremities that surround it, the 99% of horrendously illogical bullshit that makes up the modern woman, consider only the 1%, the snatch. Empires have risen and fallen at the hands of the female genitalia. It has made many men, and crushed countless more. Don’t allow yourself to fall victim, don’t be another statistic. Master your craft, hone your skills, and perfect your stroke.”
And to top it all off, he then tells his readers to “put two moist sponges in a solo cup and f*** that until you get it right if you have to, but do not settle until you’ve done just that: gotten it right.”
As you can imagine, every female attending William & Mary respectably had the right to fight back in response to this horridly ignorant, profoundly sexist, and eye opening email. Not only do I feel extremely sorry for this young man who clearly does not have any class, respect for himself or others, and intelligence, but I also am thankful for what he has shown not just the campus of William & Mary, but the entire nation.
I am thankful for this email because it only gives more significant evidence that sexism is EXTREMELY current in our society—especially to those who somehow believe it isn’t—and sadly still prevalent in our younger generations. This evidence also contributes to the fact that gender equality is nonexistent and is something we should ALL—regardless if you are female or male—should be strongly fighting for every day.
Although I realize that not all men in America or in Sigma Chi chapters are like this, it does make me wonder what kind of “men” fraternities in our nation are brewing with their philanthropic efforts—if that’s what they like to call their activities these days.
So to end my respectable rant, I am making a call to action for anyone who reads this. If you identify blatantly ignorant and unintelligent actions such as this at any point throughout your life, DO NOT let it slide under the radar.
Please do yourself and the nation a favor and do not sit back and let things like this be okay. Change cannot happen without realization and effort; so make the effort and make the change. Make others realize that gender equality is still a problem and is something our nation unquestionably needs to continue to strive for.
Please feel free to comment, I would love to discuss this issue with you all.
