Huff Po - In a series of emails and texts, American University students said to be associated with an underground fraternity discuss rape, assault, underage drinking and illegal drug consumption, as well as how to keep their illicit behavior secret.
The redacted emails and text messages, which appear to have originated from the Google Group of Epsilon Iota, were posted Thursday night on an anonymous Tumblr page. Prior to the material’s appearance on Tumblr, a PDF file of more than 70 pages of uncensored material, dating as far back as 2012, was circulated to many on the AU campus from an anonymous email account.
The AU Epsilon Iota chapter of Alpha Tau Omega lost its charter more than a decade ago due to misconduct involving hazing and alcohol abuse. “Involvement in this unrecognized organization could pose risks to students, and the university highly discourages individuals from joining them,” reads a 2010 document from AU.
The emails — a selection of which can be seen below — not only reference various illegal activities and seem to make light of sexual assault and rape, but include a lengthy discussion of whether or not one brother physically assaulted a female student in 2012. The group’s responses range from denial to downplaying the incident.
The emails also reference mixers and social events with sororities, which the university has in the past attempted to prevent.
Not sure how many times this needs to happen before frats realize they need to stop posting this shit on Listservs and Google Docs? I mean how often do these things leak, 95% of the time? 98%? It’s just basic common sense at this point. Stop posting douchey emails on these forums. They will end up on the internet and you will end up being called a misogynistic rapist as your frat is kicked off campus/disbanded/arrested.
As for the actual emails, half of them are just piling on. Highlighting a kid saying that rushes want to drink and smoke? Saying that “enables underage drinking and substance abuse?” Get the fuck out of here. It’s college. If you’re not underage drinking and abusing substances just go home. And the shirt ideas talking about pussy juice. Give me a break saying that’s “misogynistic.” If it was a crime for college bros to talk about pussy you’d have every 18-23 year old male in the country behind bars. Leaking those and lumping them all together kind of takes away from the actual scumbag emails and screenshots about beating up chicks and raping them in the woods. Be better than that anonymous leaker.
