Patriarchal Head Games

(10/27/04 9:00am)

While I agree with Liza Williams' main point regarding the externality of binary service-based relationships as a hindrance to the overarching objective of equi-personal concomitant sexual relationships ("Sex, Solicitation and Sororities," The Dartmouth, October 26), I believe it is incumbent upon us to delve further into her conception of the nurturance of masculinist gratification rituals cast in the sorority "framework." Clearly it is not a point of anisotropic indifference that feminine "performance" from the fellatory perspective as judged by an omnipartial male "audience" (as it were) is a hampering factor toward the concomitance of relationships; indeed it has been instrumental in bringing untold numbers of otherwise flourishing partnerships to their knees.

A brief history of Halloween before it hits the Hanover Green

(10/26/04 9:00am)

Halloween is this Sunday, and there are a plethora of scary activities going on. That night the 2005 and 2007 Class Councils will pair up with Phi Delta Alpha fraternity to present their Haunted House from 8-11 p.m. This Saturday, the Hanover Recreation Department and the College are sponsoring another Haunted House behind the Hanover Town Hall at 6 p.m. Additionally, on Sunday, the Dartmouth Film Society is showing "The Old Dark House" at Spaulding Auditorium. Made by the same director as "The Bride of Frankenstein," the film is purported to be the ultimate Halloween movie -- a masterly mixture of macabre humor and gripping suspense.

Big Green rugby pulls out tough road win to keep playoff hopes alive

(10/26/04 9:00am)

AMHERST, Mass. -- Coming off a narrow yet important victory over a strong squad from the University of Connecticut last weekend, the Dartmouth rugby team was poised to continue its winning streak Saturday against the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. In a sloppy match marred by numerous penalties for both teams, Dartmouth was able to hang on and keep the streak alive with a 19-14 victory, improving its season record to 4-2.

Sex, Solicitation and Sororities

(10/26/04 9:00am)

The Dartmouth's Oct. 20 news article, "On pro bono basis, local teaches the art of oral sex," engenders several possible interpretive frameworks. On one hand, a reader can approach the article as a triumph of discursive community: At Dartmouth, we not only instruct in the classics, but every woman on campus has access to "two-hour tutorials on the art of performing fellatio." I'll just slip the mention of this into one of my tours tomorrow morning, and do a response poll on prospective students and parents. Conceivably, one might applaud such liberation and herald a shattered silence of bedroom practices, contributing to a positivist approach to sexual relationships on campus. Alternatively, the article could be dismissed without much consideration as an idiosyncratic campus presence at the beneficence of a colorful local character. Brenda Griffin's "community service" may be intriguingly newsworthy not only for the informal public context that shapes her discipline, but also the pragmatic approach that the employee of Stinson's Village Store on Allen Street brings to her forums. I fear however, that the function of the article's newsworthiness imparts a much different lasting message: it resonates an image of sexual solicitation.
