Cornell Fraternity on Probation for Secret Sex Game

Cornell frat disciplined over ‘pig roast’ sex contest

New members of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at Cornell University participated in a fat-shaming sex contest a year ago where they accumulated points for having sex with women, university officials say.

Investigators have learned that some members of the fraternity have been participating in the sex contest where they got points for having sex with women and in the event of a tie, more points were awarded to the member who had sex with the heaviest woman. The investigation results are posted on Cornell's website.

The university's student-published newspaper claimed that "current members forced new members to drink alcohol, provide servitude and perform early morning workouts".

Paul Russell, interfraternity council president, said that such sex contests are "not normal". "The IFC was appalled and disgusted by the activity described in the reports".

A fraternity at Cornell University, located in Ithica in the state of NY in the United States, has been placed on probationary recognition for two years following multiple reports of misconduct during 2017.

"The Kappa Chapter of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity is horrified at the notion of the degradation and/or objectification of women, and the impact it has had on men and women across the United States, and at Cornell", the statement read.

Bermuda Is the First Country to Legalize and Repeal Same-Sex Marriage
In May, Taiwan's constitutional court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to legally marry, the first such ruling in Asia. Brown said same-sex couples already married under Bermuda law will still be recognized as married.

In a report published on the university's website, the college explained the fraternity had been in violation of its code of conduct on two counts - one for hazing, an action that endangers the emotional or physical health of another student, and two for sexually abusive behaviour. Their national organization will also be required to conduct an external review.

In a lengthy statement on Facebook announcing the probation, the Cornell chapter of the fraternity said interactions connected to the game "were neither chapter sanctioned activities nor ones that brothers were aware of".

As part of its discipline the chapter must participate in events for Sexual Assault Awareness Week, undergo reviews and hire a live-in adviser.

"Your feelings are legitimate and appropriate reactions to something of this nature".

"We are committed to demonstrating through our actions that this inexcusable behavior will not be tolerated, and as such, we will take the necessary steps to ensure we retain the ideals and values of our brotherhood, specifically Social Responsibility and Integrity", said the ZBT.X It is reported that other ZBT chapters at American universities have been sanctioned for misconduct.
