As I've mentioned many times before on this blog, just because I don't believe in feminism doesn't mean that I approve of sexism or misogyny. If anything, it means that I can focus on real instances of sexism and misogyny rather than those that only exist in the fevered imaginations of feminists.

For an example of real sexism and misogyny, Saint Mary's University recently got into hot water over a student chant that endorses underage sexual assault--that has been used by students for five years!

The college only recently took notice of the chant (conveniently enough) when the following video was leaked onto the internet:

VIDEO: Saint Mary's University Offensive Orientation Chant Original Video SMU

SMU boys, we like them young.
Y is for your sister.
O is for oh-so-tight.
U is for underage.
N is for no consent.
G is for grab that ass.


I don't know what's worse about all of this: that this chant was used by the student body for five years without controversy, that the student leaders caught singing it only received a slap on the wrist by being required to take sensitivity training, or that this chant only garnered attention following the suicide of a teenage girl who suffered cyberbullying over an alleged sexual assault she had suffered.

You know what? Scratch that. Obvious answer is obvious! That this blatantly sexist, misogynist, underage rape-condoning chant remained under the radar of school officials for five years only until a girl committed suicide after suffering cyberbullying and sexual assault is. The. Worst. Possible. Thing.

Any student group caught singing such a dehumanizing chant should be disbanded and have their offending members expelled. Okay, so maybe expulsion is a tad severe, but it would be far more punishing that simply requiring students to take "sensitivity training."

Feminists, if you want to bitch over this, by all means, be my guest. This is actual sexism and misogyny most deserving of your rage.

If this caused you to lose faith in humanity, I shudder to think what you think about the rest of the news!

The rest of the news hurts it too.  More so in fact.

I'm most shocked by the fact that this is at a Catholic university. I went to their website, and this stuff was listed:
  • acknowledges that we live in the holy presence of God and invites all members of its community to participate in that reality;
  • grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition and vision and is inspired and guided by Gospel values;
  • faithful to the Christian message as it is embodied in the Church's history, wisdom, and tradition;

Can't say they're doing a great job. Sad to see that even Christian/Catholic schools are falling victim to this garbage.

Funny how Catholicism has a way of covering up sexual abuse.

The new pope is really cracking down on that kind of stuff, though. He recently fired a cardinal from Boston who covered it up, among other things. He's really what we Catholics need right now.

Just listen to this interview, the guy's incredible: www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10…

I heard about this story. The article I read said that there was a time when something like this wouldn't even last a month, let alone 5 years. A male authority figure would overhear the chant, knock some sense into all involved, and then everyone would go on with their lives.

 

A pity that such action isn't pc enough for today's enlightened society.
