In the second of four installments, CU Independent reporter Kyle Ward examines the type of space hypermasculinity creates for those that don’t fall into the construct and possible effects of homogeneity on bro culture.
“There have been studies that have been done on this and, interestingly, when you have a more diverse campus, and even within the fraternity culture, time after time you see less sexual assault,” Thomas Keith, anti-sexist activist, author and lecturer said.

Great work guys! Looking forward to the white privilege segment.
I want to see sources for these purported studies that show sexism is more prevalent among white people than black people. I’d also like to see some actual interaction with bros who admit they’re bros. Obviously “nerd alert” guy is a bro in disguise. Overall, cite some sources and clean up your vocabulary into something that sounds less elitist, and you may have something here. Right now, it just sounds like you’re trying to talk over people by using silly jargon like hetero-normitivity. When a simpler synonym is available, use it. Otherwise you will alienate most of your readers, even those (like myself) who DO understand your terminology. It comes off as snobby and elitist, not intellectual or insightful.
Sexism in black frats versus white frats, friend. Take a deep breath.
