If Rebecca reads this please do us all a favor. Slit your wrists and chug a bottle of bleach for good measure. I’d hate to think worthless trash like this might breed.

I work near the campus in question and will testify as to the only worth they have as guttersluts/cumdumpsters. Double newsflash, nobody likes sorostitutes. Most especially the intellectually vacant tramps at UMD.

My question is who read her stupid email to begin with? Who was she talking to? But more importantly what is Rebecca’s favorite sex position and does she swallow?

I do feel sorry or her in a way. In the social media age, young adults often sent treats and use F words often, when they don’t meant it. Her email sounds no different than just a rampage that a typical young girl has after a hard social week or is mad. I don’t think she would ever sent this email in this language to random people. It can definitely be phrased more pleasantly like Dear sister, recently we have been lacking in the socialization department…. We should pay respect to our brothers and not mention other fraternity infront of them. blah blah… in order to build a brighter chapter that we can all enjoy together collectively, we should extend ourselves and socialize and meet new people. something like that will be more appropriate i guess, but I think it is because they are her sisters that is why she felt it was okay to let loose. I have definately been guilty for sending angry email or text to my close friends and best friends when they have disappointed me. I am pretty sure most of us here have. It is unfair that she has this over the media that will follow her for the rest of her life. I understand why some one reported her, but I feel the same way that the person who sent this to national media is more of a mean girl than the girl who wrote this letter. I think letting the sonority head knows what is happening is enough but going beyond that is overboard. I Sincerely hope the person who reported her will not follow this ethic of codes in the future. I really hope he or she stops at this incident.

DeleteFlag as inappropriateI realize I’m late chiming in on this issue, but since I have a contrary POV, wtf. The ‘mean sorority girl’ email? Rocks. If there was no gender issue – AND THERE SHOULDN’T BE A GENDER ISSUE, SHOULD THERE? – no one would have a problem with it, other than, ‘dude, take it down one notch’. If it came out of a frat, it would be, like, Friday. Anyone piling on this woman gets a Limbaugh medal.

“This week is about fostering relationships in the Greek community, and that’s not f-ing possible if you’re going to stand around and talk to each other and not our matchup.”

Translation: Quit ignoring the guests, that’s rude.

“This also applies to you little sh*ts that have talked openly about post gaming at a different frat IN FRONT OF SIGMA NU BROTHERS … First of all, you SHOULDN’T be post gaming at other frats …YOU DON’T GO. YOU. DON’T. GO. And you ESPECIALLY do f-ing NOT convince other girls to leave with you.”

Translation: You don’t b*tch about how another event is so much better in front of the hosts of the current event, and you don’t talk everyone into ditching — it’s rude.

Sports thing: Know the game, and cheer for your team – people notice if you don’t.
Translation: Being ignorant is not perceived as a cute girly thing.

“If this email applies to you in any way, meaning if you are a little a-w*pe that stands in the corners at night or if you’re a weird sh*t that does weird sh*t during the day, this following message is for you: DO NOT GO TO TONIGHT’S EVENT … where you’re unable to NOT do these things, then you are HORRIBLE, I repeat, HORRIBLE PR FOR THIS CHAPTER. ”

Translation: If being informed and reasonably social is something you can’t handle, don’t show up at a sponsored event for no reason other than to reflect badly on the organization you are there to represent.

“If you are one of the people that have told me “Oh nooo boo hoo I can’t talk to boys I’m too sober”, then I pity you because I don’t know how you got this far in life, and with that in mind don’t f-ing show up unless you’re going to stop being a g*d*mn c*ck bl*ck for our chapter.”

Translation: If you can’t function without alcohol, you have a problem. If you can’t interact with other people, you have a problem that is damaging our organization.

Why should her gender be any reason to judge the use of language that is strong and modern? Why should her gender preclude the use of the language her society uses on a daily basis? Her email has nothing to do with sex or gender — it’s about functioning in social situations as adults, not as self-absorbed, ignorant, bad-mannered tweenies.

How DARE she tell those pampered sorority darlings to grow up?

Emails from the president of an organization shouldn’t need translation away from their original filth-soaked form. Regardless of gender, that email shows immaturity and a complete lack of self-control. If it came from either gender, they should both be yanked from their post.

Your accommodation and acceptance (and apparent support!) for it is deplorable.

Just to be clear, she wasn’t President, she was social chair. World of difference.

Seriously people…You think this chick is “cool”? You think that she shouldn’t have resigned? OMG. Greek life is more pathetic than I originally imagined. She is a disgusting caricature of all that Greek life stands for and the superficial people who love it. I wish someone would c&*t punt it out of our universities, and do us all a favor.

Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link, MOJO50.COM

You go Rebecca since when did everyone become so hyper sensitive!! It’s about time someone said exactly how they felt without sugar coating it!! We have become a society of lying backstabbing individuals who would rather say things about people behind their backs, using that same language. But as soon as someone says it publicly then all hell breaks loose!! Kudos to you for your honesty!

you can get your point across without being offensive, cruel, and ignorant. I do it all the time, even with a home wrecker who verbally abuses me. I never curse at her and get the point across fine. guess who comes out looking better? the one who screams and curses and threatens? or the one being political, non-violent, but firm?

“Rebecca might of let her anger get the best of her”
Did you mean “might have” or “Might’ve”? I know it’s small but, it’s egregious; you’re a writer.

This wasn’t the tone at all. She was being sarcastic and condescending and blasting her sorority for being lame. THAT WAS HER JOB AS GREEK WEEK CHAIR; to motivate the sorority to participate. It is more disgusting that a sorority violated her sisterhood by sending an internal communication to the world. That girl should be thrown out. Meanwhile Rebecca is in hiding.

i agree that she is less lame than the rest of her sorority- but, she’s still a fool and i can’t support her. people that are so desperate to be accepted by frat boys are really pathetic… so, yah, she’s funny and i admire her strength, but at the end of the day she’s just another girl trying to get in with the in-crowd, and that’s sad, desperate, and pathetic. so… no-fanning from me.

I get what she was trying to say but she went about it all wrong! and that was not okay.
I haven’t seen the full letter, but it seems she was frustrated by the other girls in the sorority’s attitude.
They apparently felt no need to socialize with the other sorority that they were there to socialize with. She felt their attitudes were making the Greek community look poorly at them. She didn’t want them to suck!
All the cussing and name calling, totally unacceptable.
I think it was a good idea for her to resign, maybe this will give the others in the sorority a chance to look at their attitudes over the past and see that maybe something was wrong.

Thay she had to resign is stupid, as are sororities. DG is a lame sorority, and as most sororities are all about being popular (as opposed to being a good female support system ), and finding a good husband, DG should be thanking the girl for talking sense into those dykey geeks. She’s pathetic for caring so much about mingling with frat boys… but, that’s what those fools are all about- so why make her resign?

Rebecca it one cool chic. She stated her thoughts and now adays wimps, weiners, and little babies need to grow up and stop crying. Obviously from the way this turned out her sisters are kuntz and beaches and need a slap in in the face.

While I’m intrigued at her confidence and audacity, she is a bully, a pathetic overprivileged rich pretty girl that uses her privileges for nothing other than herself and to be mean to others. She needed a huge dose of humble pie. Thrilled she had to resigned. It will be a long road for this girl to get over this and hope that she learns some decency along the way.
