Also, when did someone squeezing by you at a crowded party become groping?
I think this is an underlying problem with Swarthmore and other non regulated campus Greek life. At UCLA their Greek system is heavily regulated from a student level. The Interfraternity Executive Council and Panhellenic Executive Council have widespread regulatory power to govern their respective chapters and report to the University. The student run councils have taken proactive steps like mandating professional security and bar tenders at all in house events, limiting the number of registered parties a fraternity can host per quarter, huge punishments for unregistered events/hazing, banning hard alcohol, instituting dry recruitment that is heavily regulated by software, parties require a university ID and they must swipe using a scanner upon entrance to each house, each fraternity has a risk management team that is sober at parties (about 5-10 brothers). These are some of the steps and has resulted in very few hospital transports and keeps everyone safe while allowing people to have fun. UCLA Greek life is thriving with over 4,500 members in regular social frats and sororities. Safety and partying can go hand in hand.
@EyeVeee The "house" was just a place to gather.
Why don’t we teach our sons, say starting in middle school what it means to respect women and have dads model that behavior for them.
@MWolf - oops...you're right. I hate when that happens
I know you don’t condone it, but why should the answer be, if girls don’t like it, then don’t go to the party and maybe the boys will wise up. That seems backwards to me. It’s not like we’re trying to train a dog to use a wee wee pad. Why don’t we teach our sons, say starting in middle school what it means to respect women and have dads model that behavior for them. That behavior should just not be happening.
Though I can think of a very public figure with a groping history who has sons!
