Delta-Kappa-Epsilon

 

Huff Po - As the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Amherst College tries to make its case that underground Greek organizations deserve a place at the prestigious Massachusetts school, a newly leaked document suggests the house may not have escaped its legacy of sexism.

Amherst announced last week it will renew a 30-year-old ban on fraternities and sororities, and will incorporate the prohibition on Greek life into the school’s honor code. Beginning this summer, the college will have the power to impose penalties, including expulsion, on anyone who is found to be involved in Greek life.  DKE is currently aggressively protesting the decision, and has criticized the college for not soliciting student input. The college has not recognized or supported Greek organizations since 1984, but the groups have continued to exist underground.

The AC Voice, a website run by Amherst students, on Monday published a 13-page internal DKE document, known as “sheets.” Prospective brothers with the fraternity are meant to memorize the list of “laws,” which include a number of veiled misogynistic references and glorify binge drinking.

“Moore’s Requirement: Suck or Walk.”
“Kuffler’s Call: I don’t drink to get drunk, I drink to solve my problems.”
“Seelbach’s Defense: I was blacked out.”
“DMO’s Law: See some trash, pick it up.” (“Trash” here purportedly refers to women.)
“If you can’t be with the one you love, take the bus to Smith … Or stay at Amherst and ride the hein train.”
“Ripper’s Recommendation: Drink it, smoke it, snort it, fuck it … and perhaps shit your pants.”
The sheets also list “beers of choice” and stipulate which brands are allowed in games of beer pong.

The Amherst DKE chapter issued a statement apologizing for the sheets and noted the offensive laws had been added by previous members and “no one bothered to remove them.”

DKE specifically addressed the “Suck or Walk” law:

Allegedly, a member of the fraternity told one female prospect — not all — that she would have to perform oral sex on him in order to join the fraternity. The story goes that she refused and was admitted into the fraternity. This story is an isolated incident and does not reflect any standard practice at the time. Equally humiliating is the “hein train” comment. It is over two decades old and reflects the opinion of one disgruntled member at the time. Entries eighteen and thirty, like all “laws,” were left in the sheets because no one bothered to remove them.

 

 

 

A list of beer choices and brands that are allowed for games of beer pong?  NOOOOOOOOOO!  Disband!  Disband!  Jesus is this really what the fraternity witch hunt has devolved to?  Fat chick jokes and excessive drinking and drug references?    Realllyyyy hope some of my private chats and convos never get released to the general public if this is the type of shit getting people in trouble these days.  If I had an arrest for every time I talk about drinking so much I shit my pants I’d be on Death Row right now.   Seriously I think even the most hardcore feminists would be pretty bored by this DKE “sheets” list.  Who doesn’t appreciate a good hein train?

 

 

 

PS – Knew something about underground frats at Amhert seemed familiar, one of them got in trouble a few years ago for this t-shirt:
