I Am a Fraternity Man
I am [not what they say I am].
From media headlines to Hollywood movies, fraternity men are commonly characterized as irresponsible meatheads whose extracurricular activities include disrespecting women, binge-drinking, hazing pledges and blowing their parents’ money.
Unfortunately, these bad apples do exist in fraternities. Just as they do in any membership organization or team, as well as society at large. But society’s negative, wide-sweeping generalizations about fraternity members discredit the vast majority of young men whose fraternity experience is positive and nothing like the negative ones portrayed in the media.
Simply put ... They are not stereotypes. They are fraternity men. And they each have their own unique stories that more fairly represent the norm.
