Jezebel- According to The Smoking Gun, San Jose State University student Courtney Howard is suing some of her ex-sorority sisters at Sigma Gamma Rho for subjecting her to disturbing hazing rituals. TSG writes, “According to her complaint, she and fellow pledges were punched, slapped, kicked, slammed into walls, struck with a wooden spoon and a cane, and had books and coins thrown at them during a series of 16 nighttime initiation sessions. Howard recalled one evening when a sorority sister told her to close her eyes. She was then struck on the buttocks with what she later learned was a kitchen pot. The pledges were also frequently struck with a wooden paddle, Howard said, blows that left her with welts on her buttocks.” Sorority members also told Howard not to say anything to anyone about the hazing, because “snitches get stitches.” They said if she failed to take part in some of the pledge activities, everyone in the sorority would beat her up. And when she told school officials about the hazing, they threatened her some more. Possibly the worst part: Howard had originally planned to pledge with a different sorority, but was scared off by reports of — you guessed it — hazing. Clearly Sigma Gamma Rho wasn’t the refuge she’d hoped for.
Can this girl shut the hell up? The girl suing and the girl writing? Boohoo somebody smacked me on the buttocks! Cry me a river. I’m assuming since this happened at a university this girl is somewhere around adult age, 17, 18 maybe older. She’s old enough to make her own decisions right? Grow a sack dude, either take your little spanking, (which sounds like it’s been blown way out of proportion), don’t pledge a sorority, or leave. If those girls really beat you up after you peaced out, then you might have yourself a case here. I mean honestly this girl is just being a typical girl. I threw down in college plenty of times, probably because I played a dyke sport and had biceps the side of Milwaukee. You gotta learn how to take a punch to the face, (or buttocks for this pussy) let them get comfortable and then knock them the fuck out with one punch. Works every time. What are they gonna do to you when little Krissy is passed out on the ground with a broken face? NOTHIN. This girl didn’t want to get hurt or hit and is being a whiny baby about it. I love how this article is all gung-ho girl power crap but everybody knows this is like the wimpiest hazing report ever. Frats would never spank a pledge with a pot, they do elephant walks and shit. Real hazing. Somebody send this girl a care package full of tampons, midol, and 30 boxes of tissues and tell her to grow the fuck up.
