It should NOT be too difficult to spot a psychotic homophobe in the midst of the population
.
They usually run their mouths a lot; have bullying tendencies; are afraid of their own genitalia; and clutch a fake 'bible' that opens to reveal a near-empty flask of moonshine from back home
.
No wonder the poor girl feels marginalized

Wouldn't they have to have straight women attending Smith before they could form a straight-only sorority there??

Why? Not everyone is accepted by any given sorority, why should gays get a free pass? I wouldn't want to force my way into an organization that didn't welcome me, would do you? Why not start an all gay sorority?

You force your way in here ever day and you're certainly not even a little bit welcome.... Does this mean you'll go away now?

Because the idea is to promote inclusion. It's called advancing civilization.

They don't want to include you and that should be their decision.
You are already included in civilization.

I was/am "a Greek", from back in the days when they were extremely exclusivist.

I suppose it depends upon whether or not they wish to maintain their non=profit status.
