The Diversity Gestapo stricked again today! A University of Alabama sorority recruitment video was slammed as being “racially homogenous” and objectifying to women because it features a number of attractive, thin white girls.  The Alpha Phi sorority recruitment video was made by women, for women, yet critics feel that the content “damages” the view of women.  The video shows a group of mostly white women partying and dancing to promote Alpha Phi, who are based at the Tuscaloosa campus. On their website, Alpha Phi’s description reads: ‘Our sisterhood and our love for one another has consistently bound us into an everlasting love and friendship.  ‘Alpha Phi prides on our motto, “union hand in hand”. We are a body of strong, motivated, and resilient young women who are tied together as a family and ultimately hold truth to our hearts and values as Alpha Phi’s.’ Founded in 1872, Alpha Phi is the fourth oldest national women’s sorority, and was the first women’s society to use Greek letters as an emblem.  However, the clip set off a firestorm of criticism, with AL.com writer A.L. Bailey asserting that the video was “worse for women than Donald Trump.” A.L. Bailey had a lot to say about the video:
Remember all those bikini-clad, sashaying, glitter-blowing, and spontaneous piggyback-riding days of college? Me either. But according to a new video, it’s a whirlwind of glitter and girl-on-girl piggyback rides at the University of Alabama’s Alpha Phi house. No, it’s not a slick Playboy Playmate or Girls Gone Wild video. It’s a sorority recruiting tool gaining on 500,000 views in its first week on YouTube. It’s a parade of white girls and blonde hair dye, coordinated clothing, bikinis and daisy dukes, glitter and kisses, bouncing bodies, euphoric hand-holding and hugging, gratuitous booty shots, and matching aviator sunglasses. It’s all so racially and aesthetically homogeneous and forced, so hyper-feminine, so reductive and objectifying, so Stepford Wives: College Edition. It’s all so … unempowering.  
While Bailey admitted that a sorority is unlikely to be especially hospitable to feminist ideology, the opinion writer maintained that the sorority has some sort of obligation to enter the struggle for equal rights—even in a recruitment video.  Some commenters seemed to agree, with one writing, “Just watched the video, as a Mother with three grandaughter’s [sic] in college trying to get through college on their own, no sorority, this Alabama video is pathetic, and shameful, college is about education, not football and parties.” Another said, “I thought it would not be that bad. I was wrong. If my daughter was in something like this she’d be in another school tomorrow. Who are they recruiting? Ex porn starlets?” 
Others responded to the video in a more positive fashion. “This is what I imagine heaven will look like,” wrote one. “Can we all just calm down and give these ladies a break? I am ALL for empowering women but I am also ALL for fun. Let’s all be realistic here. When you are 18 years old and entering college, you are not only looking for the educational value but there is a social aspect as well,” wrote another respondent to Baily’s article. “You have a problem with white skinny girls with long hair? Like most people, I rather see this than a bunch of fat bald girls,” added another.  The clip was soon removed from YouTube after the backlash despite receiving over 500,000 views, but was later re-posted by other users.  The group also deleted their Facebook and Tumblr accounts while increasing privacy settings on their Instagram.  On Monday, the University of Alabama administration condemned the video. “This video is not reflective of UA’s expectations for student organizations to be responsible digital citizens,” Deborah Lane, the associate vice president for university relations said in a statement. “It is important for student organizations to remember what is posted on social media makes a difference, today and tomorrow, on how they are viewed and perceived.”  Griffin Meyer, the University of Alabama student filmmaker who shot the recruitment video, told USA TODAY that the shoot was “not very organized and there was a lot of improvisation that led to shots with similar looking girls.” “This video isn’t for politically sensitive adults who immediately associate a popsicle with sex,” Meyer added. “There is no drinking, no drugs, no nudity. It’s kind of sad girls can’t play fake football or be in a bikini without the judgement of the entire Internet.”  He told the Hollywood Reporter that he was inspired by a University of Arizona recruitment video. The video featured scantily clad sorority women dancing and wrapping American flags around themselves.
Some, however, don’t see what all the fuss is about: “There’s a bunch of blond white pretty girls partying and stuff. That’s it. That’s literally like every sorority ever,” wrote one poster on YouTube. 
Paul Joseph Watson from Infowars.com wonders “if the reaction would have been less severe if the girls in the video had been a lot fatter and less attractive.”  Criticism of their behavior in that context may even have been labeled “fat shaming” by some of the very same people upset over this video.  We know that feminists believe that men being attracted to thin, pretty fertile women is a conspiracy contrived by the beauty and cosmetics industry, when it’s actually scientific fact based on crucial factors like hip to waist ratio. This has led to the growth of bizarre feminist offshoot movements like “fat acceptance,” which encourages even morbidly obese women to embrace “body positivity,” providing them with an excuse not to acknowledge that their lifestyle is incredibly harmful to their health. Watch the videos below for further insights into why feminists hate attractive women and how this spawned the “fat pride” movement.
