Phi Kappa Tau, the Georgia Tech fraternity behind the email instructing members on how to go about “luring rapebait” at college parties, is under investigation by university officials.
In a statement released to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Georgia Tech said it was “aware of this incident” and “is currently engaged in an investigation to determine the facts. Phi Kappa Tau’s national office, as well as Tech’s student-led Interfraternity Council, are also reviewing the matter to determine whether to take any independent action. The Institute does not condone this type of behavior and continues to provide resources and education designed to create a supportive campus environment for all students, even those who exercise extremely poor judgment.”
While it’s great that the university is investigating the matter, the language of the statement is a little weak, no? Creating a guide called “How to Lure Rapebait” and urging men to “GO GET MORE ALCOHOL” if a woman resists their pickup lines is not exercising “extremely poor judgment,” it is creating a potentially dangerous campus environment in which sexual violence is being encouraged among the student body. And “this type of behavior” is called sexism.
It’s OK to put a name to these things, really.
More to come as the story develops.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
