The "MU's Social Rift Evident at Blood Drive" letter set me off. It has nothing to do with Greeks vs non Greeks. Greek members would say the same thing about going into a second-hand book store to donate books only to have the 'eclectic girl in the wide-rimmed glasses'(since we are being stereotypical) ignore them or even worse, scoff at them and then write about it on her blog. I see it all the time and I'm not a part of the Greek system.
Secondly, Maneater, you are prepetuating this stereotype just as much, if not more than any student. Get a new headline or go give me evidence there's really a cultural divide driven by members of the Greek community.
Guy who wrote this: I'm sorry you felt left out and felt bad after you did a good deed. However, if that's all it took to make you feel dejected, you've got some internal issues to deal with, my friend. Why didn't you say anything? Maybe the problem is you not speaking up for all the "ugly" guys like you out there. You remain "invisible" because you choose to stay silent, thats not anyone else's problem but your own. I have no issues with anyone in the Greek system treating me like I'm lesser because I don't act like I'm some loser with a sad vendetta. People like YOU make non Greeks like ME sick to my stomach because people like YOU make the rest of us look like that kid that didn't get an invite to the party.
You could have been wearing Greek letters and those girls still wouldn't have got you anything because of your meek presence. Pastel polos don't make the man, the man makes the man... and you my friend have yet to let your balls drop.
