Spot the Ridiculous Statement

From the New York Times :

The national sorority forced 23 members of its DePauw chapter to leave the sorority’s house in December, and a half-dozen more women later quit in protest. The action greatly diminished the chapter’s diversity, because the women who were allowed to stay were all slender and conventionally pretty. Those evicted included some overweight women; several nonwhite members either were evicted or left the sorority on their own.

See? I even helped.

Also, I <3>Slate. And Barbarians. And people who unironically use the words "totes" and "obvi."

conventionally pretty

Probably boring in bed. Oops, did I say that out loud. Sorry one of the earlier posts got me thinking like the young bachelor I was in 1937.

Actually I meant that "conventionally pretty" girls aren't "diverse." I understand what they were trying to say, but it came out pretty f*d up.
