Abolish Fraternities?

Sa lahat ng fratmen dito sa PeX, what's your take on this suggested resolution by Sen. Mirriam Defensor-Santiago? Will this suggested step resolve the deaths due to hazing?

Also, as true-blooded Fraternity members, do you really believe that a neophyte could die accidentally because of hazing?

    It is like saying, ban swimming bec people die of drowning in the pool or the beach, or ban driving because peope die in vehicular accidents. Fratmen sought the brotherhood voluntarily, and neophytes will continue to rise because they want be associated and to belong, to be proven qualified, to be recognized, to uplift their self esteem and idenity, or for whatever reason. Hindi mawawala ang frats by banning it.

    Yes, it is possible to die in hazing. The body could react in various ways. Psychological stress can tigger fatal physical malfunction even on young people. A broken rib is not fatal. Most fatal injuries though are head trauma.

    Hmmm....

    But isn't it right that hazing / initiation rights are bounded by rules that needs to be strictly implemented by the members? What is the purpose of the presence of the MI's if members wouldn't abide by these rules?

    I am a fratman myself and during our days, hazing / initiation rights are being done in accordance with the fraternal rules and bylaws. Besides, you are initiating a new brother so there's no point in inflicting bodily harm that he won't be able to handle.*okay*
  • I hope you can see how your analogy is invalid (banning fraternities against banning swimming/driving?).
    Banning frats may not be easy. Most powerful people and leaders are affiliated with such organizations...

    Kung sa prevention ng deaths due to hazing, aba syempre oo, banning fraternities will work. Yung problem is implementation ng consequences/punishment sa mga lalabag nito... Di ba may anti-hazing law ngayon (meron nga ba?)... bakit mayroon pa ring nangyayaring ganito? Again dahil hindi maayos na napapatupad ang kaparusahan sa lumalabag nito, dahil na din sa mga konekoneksyon ng mga frats sa mga makapangyarihang tao.

    nasa pag handle din yan ng mga seniors---at pagdedesisyon mo...buhay mo yan eh...
    desisyon mo din yan in the end, why would you allow yourself na dumaan sa ganon?

    ive been with _._._ for 6 years now at isa lang ang masasabi ko--hindi ko alam kung pinagsisisihan ko ba o hindi. pero masaya parin ako na member nila ako.

    with regards to hazing, yup meron. 16 lang ako nung sumali ako at sobrang payat. nakaya ko naman ang "chocolate" sobrang sakit pero tama naman ang "Pagbibigay" kasi parang may expertise din yan at walang abuso eh..kapag ganyang initiation eh wala dapat lasing na pumapalo--may M.I dapat na tumatayo talaga as the master of initiation at alam nila dapat ang limitation...
  • attention fratmen and pinoys interested about pinoy greek culture, please visit www.pinoyfraternity.com
  • just look at what happened last bar exam.
  • I agree with mirriam santiago...... Ano rason mo para sumali? wag kayong magagalit pero un talaga opinyon ko.... di ko maisip or mapoint out man lang ang dahilan ng pagsali sa frat na matapos kang bugbugin or pagtripan eh masaya ka pa sa huli? paexplain nga po.... Sorry.... baka sakaling pagnaintindihan ko na, kahit papano maiintindihan ko mga frat members...
