I didn’t intend it to be a comment on homosexuality being an “unofficial frat,” I just threw in some off branded humor linking ass smacking to the LGBTQ center,
which is derogatory in retrospect. I was just trying to be humorous as I try to be about every other community at Georgetown, but it was poorly thought out and I ask that you blame my stupidity. I have personally established a fairly filthy rapport with certain friends that identify as LGBTQ, but obviously posting on a public blog as a semi-anonymous author is a completely different context and i suppose that slipped my mind as I hastily finished this post. Sorry to have offended anyone. Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Questioning/Transgender/Straight/Leggings-as-pants wearing freshman, may you love Georgetown so hard.

Though they’re not “official” in the sense of being recognized by the university, many of them are actually nationally chartered–i.e., they’re official chapters of their national Greek organization–and are as legitimate in terms of the experience they offer their members as any university-sanctioned group.

I’m glad to see the link to the LGBTQ Resource Center has been deactivated. As for “ass smacking,” I’ve been in SigEp for three years now and “paddling” has yet to be a part of the experience. I’d encourage all new students to look past the anti-frat stereotypes initially and give Greek life a fair shake when they arrive on campus. They may conclude in the end that the stereotypes are true–for some organizations, I think they are–but they should at least enter with open minds. Some groups really are making an effort to be different.

You’re absolutely right. The link has been removed and an editor’s note has been added to the post.

This is no message to send to incoming freshmen. What if a LGBT student, already concerned about his identity being respected at a catholic institution, were to read this post? If this is just off color humor, something that I usually adore, i’m sorry, this joke didn’t land.

Luckily for that freshman, most of our campus has become far less vulgar in its discussion of its still sometimes fragile LGBTQ community.

I request that the link be deactivated immediately.

Way to propagate homophobia.
