This is unbelievable. Harvard’s third oldest sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, has officially disassociated from the sorority’s national organization. Why? They are establishing a gender-neutral social club instead.
Called the Fleur-de-Lis, this is the first sorority or fraternity to go co-ed since the university announced penalties for belonging to single sex clubs. The Harvard Crimson reports:
The sanctions, which took effect with the Class of 2021, bar members of single-gender final clubs and Greek organizations from receiving campus leadership positions, varsity athletic team captaincies, and College endorsement for prestigious fellowships like the Rhodes.
The most stunning part of this is that Harvard College Dean Rakesh Khurana — instrumental in the new policy that restricts members of single-sex student organizations from obtaining leadership positions elsewhere on campus — was so thrilled with the move.
“This kind of positive change is made possible by our students’ leadership in creating environments and cultures rooted in respect and inclusion,” he said. “As members of this community, we all have an opportunity to strengthen our culture both for current students and future generations, and I applaud the Fleur-de-Lis on their efforts.”
In other words, if you belong to a normal sorority or fraternity, you are not welcome to participate in leadership anywhere else on campus. You are now officially a pariah.
Go, Harvard. They are revolting human beings working to create a fascist utopia in Cambridge. Oh, and here’s this emasculating yet obvious fact:
The Fleur plans to hold its first round of recruitment, open to College students of all genders, in late January, Menon wrote in the press release. Though the Fleur plans to accept men, it will remain a “female-focused group,” according to the press release.
Even if your kid can get in, and even if you can afford it… why would any conservative, libertarian, or normal, non-partisan, non-Fascist send their kid to this bastion of insanity?
