I believe that many fraternities knowingly promote misogyny. Women today are still battling for equality and respect. As long as there exist fraternities where the culture promotes the idea that a female is nothing but a sexual object, the cycle will never be broken. We need to move away from this male "group mentality" .
I personally think that misogyny was promoted by fraternities because of the frat name. I personally think that misogyny was promoted by fraternities and was known for the first fraternity. I personally think that misogyny was named by frat members and was promoted by fraternities. I personally think that was promoted because the frat members wanted to name it a college.
While some fraternities may be legitimately avoiding a misogynistic actions, it is my opinion that many of them not only allow misogynistic practices, but promote them! When potential members are rushed, some of the actions they are required to complete involve belittling young ladies and/or making sexual advances towards them. These tendencies could quite possibly be brought on by the excessive amount of drinking during (and outside of) parties. Many of the fraternities throughout the United States perpetuate the idea that "females aren't actual people" and, even more disturbing, teach their members how to "almost rape girls".
Misogynistic actions are out of spite for women. I'm sure that most of the actual belief that fraternities equal misogyny stems from the UVA incident, which had less evidence to back itself up than actual rape in universities. It turned out to be false, yet everyone still believes that fraternities are bad. Is it plain stupidity or modern feminism? I'm curious to know.
I do not believe misogyny is promoted by fraternities. That is a ludicrous claim, and there is no real evidence of it. Just because frats promote males, does not mean they are practicing misogyny. This is just another thing being spit out by radical feminists who don't know what they are doing.
Misogyny is defined as the hatred of women. I would say the vast majority of fraternities do not promote misogyny and are actually upstanding organizations. I'm sure there are some fraternities that take actions that are questionable and treat others outside of the fraternity is a lowly matter, but I believe colleges should combat these problem fraternities.
