Dragging gay people around prompted the Shepard/Byrd amendment to the Federal Hate Crimes Law
Perhaps it is time to put the law to good use
They can start by turning Emory's Sigma Nu House into the 'National Homophobe Wax Museum' full of nude wax manniquins of famous homophobic a$holes; starting with the one in this news article
.......and related memorabilia such as rusty pickup trucks, ropes, chains, whips, brass knuckles, baseball bats, broom handles, broken beer bottles, and unpaid bills from defeated defense attorneys
Emory University will be SO proud!

OK, the guy was wearing a wizard's hat. While the homophobia in frat life is probably very real, wearing a hat like that is asking for trouble. If you're going to wear your sexuality on your sleeve, or head, you need to be prepared for a fight and be able to make sure whoever starts the fight doesn't get up in the end.

IMO, the problem of homophobes starting their carp will cease once we not only fight back when attacked, but make sure we do some serious damage in return. Eye for an eye and we all know to what extent gay men get beaten by homophobes and we need to start returning the favors when provoked.

I looked up wizards hat and it defines as "party hat" in this application
Is there a gay connotation I am unaware of?
Emory is a medical school and a law school (full of the most brilliant wizards imaginable)
The whole notion that an ignorant homophobe could be an Emory student is totally contrary to Emory's stellar reputation

The fraternity/sorority system in North America sucks. Most of these places should frankly be burnt down. The purpose should have been a place for students with a common lifestyle (in the true sense of that word, as in nerds, jocks, party animals, foreign language speakers, etc.) to com together. Instead, they are all about excluding people by race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. as well as hazing incidents that fall way outside what elsewhere would be considered the bounds of decent human behaviour.

I also strongly disapprove of black, LGBT, Jewish and other minority frats and sororities. Why should people encourage separation?

The main reason why colleges and universities tolerate these organizations is that their former members often tend to become corporate execs or are old money. If they did what was truly the right thing and kicked them out, they'd lose most of their endowments.

But even here in Canada where universities are heavily subsidized by the government, they still don't want to do this - we just has a really disgusting hazing incident in Alberta where pledges were forced to eat their own vomit.
