Harvard University Considers Banning Fraternities And Sororities

The higher-ups at Harvard University are considering a complete ban of fraternities and sororities on their campus. Mainly because men don’t know how to act like civilized human beings.

According to DailyMail, the iconic Ivy League institution introduced a proposal that they hope will help combat sexual assault and alcohol abuse. If adopted, greek life at Harvard will be a wrap in the fall of 2018.

‘In order to move beyond the gendered and exclusive club system that has persisted – and even expanded – over time, a new paradigm is needed,’ the committee wrote, ‘one that is rooted in an appreciation of diversity, commitment to inclusivity and positive contributions to the social experience for all students.’

A separate Harvard committed described the members of greek orgs and social clubs as having a “deeply misogynistic attitude” and a “sense of sexual entitlement”.

A University survey shows that 47% of woman who are in their senior year have experienced some form of non-consensual sexual contact.

Ending binge drinking and sexual abuse is certainly an issue that needs to be addressed on college campuses all over America, but can you imagine HBCUs completely banning greek life?

Do you think that if they did that it would help curb the problems?
