    Centrist?
    There isn't a "Republican" lean. I'm not conservative, I'm actually more liberal, however, I'm a Republican. So my views sometimes line up with the cons.

    I never said they were "characterized". I said they were the people who didn't pledge. That was their choice. And hockey players weren't "characterized" as hockey players - it's what they were.

    Next time please ask me what my post means before you attempt to use it in a disparaging way.

    Oh I know that. I'm just amazed that he saw "Centrist" instead of what it actually says.

    I've grown to just get used to the fact that he has a very wild imagination.

    There are racists all over this planet.

    And that's not saying that everyone on this planet is a racist.

    No you did not just say they were people who didn't pledge, you specifically called them names in a disparaging way:

    Animal House came out in 1978, two years before I entered college. I have to admit, when I saw it I was like WTF, is all of that true? It was, in a lot of ways. I was in the Greek system at my college - Greeks were huge. The only people who didn't pledge were either nerdy, odd, or hockey players (they weren't allowed to). I went to a private university.
    How is that not a characterization of people who didn't pledge?? Or are the people who did not pledge in fact "odd" or "nerdy"?

    "Direct Characterization tells the audience what the personality of the character is."

    You tell us people who did not pledge were odd or nerdy, is that the absolute truth or just your idea or characterization of them? Just stand up and say that's how you thought of them, perhaps not exactly how they truly were.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I haven't heard of anyone who has a problem with the University severing their ties to the fraternity.

    Spend some time in Alabama and figure it out for yourself.

    BTW: Alabama is known as the heart of Dixie. Think about that a little bit.

    Excuse me. I said they were the people who didn't pledge. You just repeated that.

    Is nerdy a bad word now? Is odd a bad word now? You're asking me to defend why I referred to people as nerdy or odd? Are you ****ing kidding me?

    If you want to know the definition of nerdy or the definition of odd, look them up.

    Sorry, I can't spend time in Alabama in 1856, so knowing what it was like 150 years ago when the fraternity was founded isn't going to happen.

    And once again, what do people who live in Alabama today have anything to do with the SAE fraternity?
