Ah, college in New England in October: A time of tossing footballs on leafy campus quads, flasks of bourbon passed around at the football game, and screaming along with your fellow fraternity pledges about rape and sodomy. On Wednesday night a group of pledges at the Yale chapter Delta Kappa Epsilon—where our former president George W. Bush once branded a young man—marched around Old Campus (home to the majority of Yale’s freshman women) chanting, "No Means Yes, Yes Means Anal." Here's the sickening video (which is mainly audio, because it was dark):
For good measure they also reportedly chanted "Fucking sluts." The Yale Daily News reports that they also yelled stuff like, "My name is Jack, I’m a necrophiliac, I fuck dead women." Our future CEO's of America in action! Of course, the DKE president has apologized for "the serious lapse in judgment" and declared that the fraternity does not condone sexual violence. But The Women’s Center at Yale isn't placated, and calls the incident “hate speech” and “an active call for sexual violence.”
And Good Feed reports that Broad Recognition, a Yale feminist publication, is demanding administrative action against DKE. "Yale women are not new to fraternity misogyny, nor are we a stranger to our administration sitting on their hands and doing absolutely nothing about it," Hannah Zeavin wrote in an editorial.
