(Newser) – A major Yale fraternity was forced to apologize yesterday, after its members marched past the college’s Old Campus—where most first-year women are housed—chanting “No means yes, yes means anal,” and “F---ing sluts,” among other sexist comments. Several were blindfolded. The incident, part of Delta Kappa Epsilon’s pledge ritual, was caught on tape and posted to YouTube immediately Wednesday night, according to Salon.

Yale’s other frats rushed to condemn DKE, and the group’s president issued an apology, telling the Yale Daily News that it was “a serious lapse in judgment by the fraternity and in very poor taste.” The Yale Women’s Center plans to hold a forum on the incident today, and members of the frat have promised to attend. This isn’t an isolated incident; a former Women’s Center board member says the “No means yes” chant has been heard before, and that sexist frat demonstrations recur every couple years.

I think I am coming around to Count Spatula's way of thinking; heterosexuals, in general, really are some fucked up, sick, demented individuals when it comes to sexual attitudes. The most unhealthy approach to sex I have ever seen has always been demonstrated by heterosexuals and usually, they are self-professed xtians.
