Yale University Pledges Encouraged Rape

This is one of the most prestigious universities in the world, yet Yale University, had a fraternity pledge that chanted, "no means yes, yes mean anal". A chant that was one of several they shouted which trivialized raping women. The fraternity's potential pledges, Delta Kappa Epsilon's Phi chapter (DKE), shouted these scary rape hinting chants in the middle of the night. To make matters worse they did this, right in front of where all the first year female students are housed! These women already have the odds against them. Statistics have shown that university or college women are 4 times more likely to get raped.

This is not acceptable. The members of DKE and it's pledges should be punished severely. Just having a forum, is not enough! Yale University should set an example and not let this slip by so easily. Yale University is suppose to have high standards in education as well as conduct. This is an institution where many of our future leaders will come from. What kind or morals will they spread on the future of our nation?
