‘No More Fun of Any Kind!’

Posted on | August 20, 2015 | 202 Comments


The Alpha Phi sorority at the University of Alabama put together a recruiting video. The apparent object of the video was to promote the idea that Alpha Phi girls are pretty, popular and fun. This is not a controversial political idea, except for feminists who hate pretty, popular girls having fun:

It’s a parade of white girls and blonde hair dye, coordinated clothing, bikinis and daisy dukes, glitter and kisses, bouncing bodies, euphoric hand-holding and hugging, gratuitous booty shots, and matching aviator sunglasses. It’s all so racially and aesthetically homogeneous and forced, so hyper-feminine, so reductive and objectifying, so Stepford Wives: College Edition. It’s all so . . . unempowering.

That column by A.L. Bailey resulted in a statement by the university condemning the video, which Alpha Phi took offline:

A video promoting the University of Alabama’s chapter of a largely white sorority has been taken down after being widely criticized online for its portrayal of women and for its lack of diversity. . . .
A statement from the school’s associate vice president for university relations, Deborah Lane, said that the video “is not reflective of UA’s expectations for student organizations to be responsible digital citizens.”

Dear God, has it gone this far? Has political correctness reached the point that it’s wrong for Alabama sorority girls to be pretty?

“Is this even America anymore?”

Feminism has gotten completely out of hand. You know damned well that if Alabama had a Muslim sorority where all the girls wore burqas, A.L. Bailey wouldn’t say a word. If Alabama had a pagan lesbian sorority, A.L. Bailey would never complain. But pretty white blonde girls having fun in daisy duke shorts? This is “objectifying”! This is not reflective of the university’s expectations: “No more fun of any kind!”

    Sorry for the delay in replying but I take weekends off from the internet. I would respond that context should have made it clear that I was not disparaging free will per se but rather completely autonomous decision making “…without input from anyone else, whether in the form of suggestion or edict.” God is always giving us constraints: Thou shalt not… and the passage Stacy is always quoting, See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil…; it is Satan who wants us to disregard all constraints and exercise our free will unbounded by anything but our own desires.

    I really don’t think I can go past this point with because based on your post, I don’t think you understand either the theological or philosophical foundations of Christian Theology.
    Take the following with no more insult intended than in your comment to me; given your use of “Hagiolotry, Mariolotry” above I would question your understanding of the “theological or philosophical foundations of Christian Theology” as well as the tenents of a faith you would criticize.

    If it is Roman Catholicism you are referring to, I understand it very well. I am not one of those that thinks a person is not Christian just because they are Roman Catholic, although the overwhelming majority of Roman Catholics are not Christian. The object of their faith is what settles that question, and the for the majority the object of their faith is the Church, not Christ.

    The statement you quote is not meant to insult, but simply is a statement of fact. I tend to limit theological discussions with people that don’t have any understanding of it.

    As a Christian I do not feel any constraints on my will. But, I’ve been set free from sin and death by Christ. I do what I want, and what I want is to follow Christ.
