America strikes back: There’s nothing wrong with gorgeous sorority girls frolicking in bikinis
‘Have we really reached a place where universities have to apologize because their sorority bid videos are too hot?’
Sometimes the P.C. police take things too far, and such was the case this week when a four-minute video showcasing young Alabama sorority women dancing, smiling, blowing kisses and frolicking in their bathing suits, sundresses and daisy dukes amidst glitter and bubbles was taken down and reprimanded.
The University of Alabama sorority recruitment video had prompted anger among some who believe it objectified women and showcased a lack of diversity. An op-ed shared all over Facebook and picked up by national news outlets chided the Alpha Phi video for being too white and unempowering to women. It even went so far as to say the video was “worse for women than Donald Trump.”
The university then scolded the sorority sisters for not being “responsible digital citizens.” The gals took down the video. Copies popped up. The story went viral, and many stood up and said: Enough is enough.
“Stop Hating On Sororities For Being Hot And White” was the headline of a Total Frat Move post by Dillon Cheverere that rightly pointed out:
Sororities aim to recruit and initiate like-minded young women. This video looks like a bunch of like-minded girls to my eyes.
If the university’s chess club put together a recruitment video featuring every member of their club, would you be up-in-arms if it showed nothing but nerdy white kids?
If the university’s hip-hop club put together a recruitment video featuring every member of their club, would you be up-in-arms if it showed nothing but young black people?
Like-minded students who relate to one another — it doesn’t make them exclusionary. It means they want to hang out together, and that’s not cause for a public shaming.
Fox Sports writer Clay Travis, in his piece titled “Alabama Apologizes For Hot Sorority Video,” vented his frustration with an “are you f*cking kidding me?”
“Have we really reached a place where universities have to apologize because their sorority bid videos are too hot? Has Alabama been overrun by ISIS?
