Sorority Boy

Written by Andrew Linn on August 22, 2022

Recently a transgender woman named Grant Sikes attempted to join at least twenty sororities at the University of Alabama. But he was rejected by all of them.

Naturally, the women in these sororities probably felt uncomfortable about admitting a man who identified as a woman into their organizations, especially since sororities are all-female organizations. And Grant Sikes is still a biological male. So it is no surprise that any of these women would not want to share the bathrooms with him.

I should point out that there have been several cases of transgender women using gender-neutral restrooms in order to sexually assault biological females. No doubt such concerns were on the minds of the sorority sisters.

According to one individual, Sikes had a low GPA, and was arrested for drug charges, both of which were the real factors as to why he was rejected by all the sororities. Sikes denies the charges.

It is yet to be determined if Sikes will seek legal action against the sororities or rally his fellow transgendered individuals to pressure any of the sororities into letting him join.

I wonder if any of these sorority chapters at the University of Alabama have engaged in controversial hazing, and if so, would Sikes be up to it should he actually join one of them?

Sikes is not the first transgender woman to be rejected by a sorority. Another transgender individual named Adam Davies tried to join at least twelve sororities at Northwestern University, but was rejected by all of them. It is unclear if any legal action or protests will be the result of him being rejected.

The stories of both Sikes and Davies remind me of the film Sorority Boys, in which three college guys are kicked out of their fraternity after being wrongfully accused of embezzling money from the chapter’s treasury. They attempt to prove their innocence by disguising themselves as women during a party held by their fraternity, but are kicked out because they are not considered to be beautiful. So a nearby sorority takes them in (not realizing they are actually guys), and with their help, the three frat brothers are able to clear their names.

These stories also remind me of someone telling me about a guy who tried to sneak into a Halloween party for lesbians by disguising himself as a woman. But the lesbians discovered he was a man and beat him up. Needless to say, women can tell if a man is trying to disguise himself as a woman.

I wonder how many other transgender women will try to join sororities, or transgender men will try to join fraternities.
