A student at Smith College says she wants to start a
straights-only sorority because she feels marginalized.
A second student posted an email from the unnamed student online.
post was picked up by sites such as BuzzFeed
“So I have this crazy idea but tell me what you honestly think,”
the student wrote. “I want to start a sorority at Smith (Delta
Gamma/DG), which would basically just be an exclusive group for
straight girls, a little friend group.”
“We would have sorority mixers with Amherst men, weekly dinner
dates, weekly photoshoots where we would dress up nice, baking
nights. We would also get Sorority apparel (even Lily Pulitzer has
the cutest DG stuff!).”
“I got this idea because personally as a straight girl at Smith,
I feel marginalized and I feel like the minority, and I think this
could be a really great way to socialize with people we identify more
with at Smith, and to meet more guys.”
The Northampton, Massachusetts college for women is known for its
progressiveness, a point commenters quickly noted.
“Why would you attend Smith if you feel so strongly about
avoiding gay people,” a
commenter wrote on Jezebel.
