Ok now come on. That hurts man! Yeah beer is amazing, but who says that's all we do in fraternities? I mean don't get me wrong, Animal House is a
classic and I love it, but it's all Hollywood! I was always told I look good in a suit, and if anyone ever called it a funny costume I would be quite
confused. Also, I would kick my Big's ass if he even touched me with the paddle I made him. We don't hit each other with them! They're traditional
gifts we give our big brothers when we get initiated. My paddle is hanging on the wall in his room.
The reason there may have been a problem with secrets being posted, is because every Fraternity's ritual is different. They all have decades of
history behind them. We don't want to lose that!
Here's an example. If you and a good friend had something that bonded you two together that only the two of you did, it wouldn't feel as special if
one day you went out and EVERYONE knew what it was and did the exact same thing! So that's why we like to keep them secret.
I'm a Sigma Nu Brother, and I'm proud to be one. However, one thing I will always remember, that some people forget, is that being in a Fraternity
makes me no better than anyone else. I try to be the best I can be because of it, but I look at people outside of Fraternities as complete equals.
