burndtdan commented on the blog post Paul Ryan Has A Soft Spot For America’s Beer/Rape Hostels
Not commenting in support of a tax break for fraternity or sorority housing, but I was in a fraternity in college and we didn’t rape anyone, had no outbreaks of STDs, only offered cheap beer at parties because we were providing it free to our guests out of our own pockets, didn’t tolerate drug use, didn’t paddle or haze anyone or do anything suggested.
What we did do was hold events and fundraisers for charity, do community service, push our brothers to keep good grades and encouraged and enforced for them a certain level of moral standing.
We weren’t an honor society, we were a social fraternity, the kind you’re talking about.
Just saying, you paint with a mighty broad brush there…
