"Day Fratting" a New Term for an Old Bad Idea

Every year there seems to be a story in which college women who get drunk and fool around with guys discover that this is not satisfying, leaves them feeling empty, and does not lead to serious romance.

This year's edition brings a new term: day fratting:

Imbibing for hours in the front yard of a fraternity. Day fratting can result in "afternoon delight," noncommittal physical activity between two people that can include casual sex.

Where are the feminist when you need them?

"But will you still respect me . . . a couple of beers from now?"

"Sure - as much as I do now."

pw - There is a branch of feminism that sees women engaging in casual sex just like men as a victory. I think this has muted the specifically feminist critique of hooking up.

Is there a term for teachers hooking up with students?

Black Sea said...

yeah, career suicide.
