University of Alabama Sorority Video Generates Controversy

So a sorority's recruitment video where the girls just kind of act silly and do girly things is somehow controversial? What did you think a sorority was?

I'll have to say, I had to watch it a few times to really decide what I thought about it. *wink*

Seriously, it's a totally harmless video, and is exactly what I think of when I think of a sorority at the University of Alabama. Not every woman wants to wear all black, major in being oppressed, and burn her bra. 

In fact, if I had to guess, I would guess that most of these girls are going to live in their home towns or suburbs of southern cities. They will get married, raise children, they will teach their children to say yes ma'am and yes sir. They will take their children to church, to ball games, and to school. Finally, many of them, maybe most most of them, will live happily and will not share a single concern of those in the extreme edge of the feminist movement.

Yeah, I guess I can see why  these white southern girls are hated and targeted these days.


  1. You know, I actually thought the music was the most offensive thing about the video. Sounds like elevator music, or hold music, maybe. Time to up your music game, ladies.

  2. Color me completely puzzled. Some folks will get upset about anything......

  3. It is strange to hear complaints about this video when no one ever complains about how homogeneous the basketball team is. This is a bunch of young women having fun during an important and transformation time in their lives. Let them rip and roar....real life is just around the corner.
