'Pig Roast' Cornell frat forced pledges to participate in fat shaming sex contests
A Cornell University fraternity chapter that held a sex contest that members dubbed the "Pig Roast" in reference to the weight of the women they slept with has been placed on probation for two years.
A Cornell University fraternity conducted a game in which new members competed to have sex with the most women ― and additional points were granted in the event of a tie to the contestant who had intercourse with a woman weighing the most, a school investigation revealed recently.
Yet in an 'interesting' kick to the sex contest, at the end of the competition, in the event there was a tie, the victor would be decided by the pledge who had sex with the heaviest woman. The women members had sex with were not told about the competition, according to The Sun.
The fraternity previously came under fire in January after its University of MI chapter was found to be in violation of rules regarding hazing, reportsDetroit News.
"Behavior that degrades and dehumanizes women contributes to a climate and culture of tolerance for sexual violence", said Lombardi.
The review board found the chapter guilty of violating the University's Fraternity and Sorority Recognition Policy by implementing section 11 of Cornell's Fraternity and Sorority Expectations of Membership, which prohibits "sexually abusive behavior on the part of its members".
The fraternity in its statement claimed the activities described were not sanctioned by the chapter and the brothers were "not aware" they were happening, despite Zeta Beta Tau declining o outright deny said activities.
The fraternity released a statement saying that the competition wasn't " chapter sanctioned activities nor ones that brothers were aware of".
"We, too, are in disbelief and even more so that these alleged actions may have been taken by those whom we called brothers", the statement said.
