Many have been raised on notions that the Ivy League breads fine gentlemen. However, in the past year, it has become apparent that most men of the Ivy League don’t know how to properly treat a lady. Meg Whitman’s sons break women’s ankles and yell racial expletives, and Yale’s DKE chants that no actually means yes.
Most recently, a trio of ’05 Princeton men has perfected the art of offending not only women, but essentially everyone else on the planet. Meet Robert and his two pals – Adam and Ian. According to Jezebel, the three were involved in “a contest they are having where they’re trying to sleep with as many women as possible.” In their email header, they referred to the contest as “The List.”
In addition, John Robert is alleged to be an employee of the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer at the US Embassy in London. Adam and Ian also have a blog entitled “Let’s go yachting!”
IvyGate planned on delivering commentary on various aspects of the email. Unfortunately, we were filled with too much revulsion over the racism and sexism to judge which statement was the most offensive. We’ll keep it with this – KEEPIN’ IT CLASSY in the ironic you buy the New York black lottery classy. You’ll have to judge the rest for yourself.
However, the whole mess does raise this question – do all men of the Ivy League regard their female peers in the same fashion?
You would have thought the Brooks Brother’s How to be a Gentleman series would’ve have worn off on them. You have these three to thank for substantiating the stereotype that the Princeton man is a misogynist racist always with a drink in hand and his butler/caddy never far behind to hand him his precious yacht keys.
