After spending the last week arguing that allowing women into all-male Harvard secret societies would only increase their chances of being sexually assaulted, all-male Harvard secret society member Charlie M. Storey today resigned from his post as graduate president of the very gravely important Porcellian club.
In a letter to the Harvard Crimson, Storey initially suggested that the secret society’s members would be somehow unable to stop themselves from sexually assaulting women if they were allowed entry.
“Given our policies, we are mystified as to why the current administration feels that forcing our club to accept female members would reduce the incidence of sexual assault on campus,” he wrote. “Forcing single gender organizations to accept members of the opposite sex could potentially increase, not decrease the potential for sexual misconduct.”
Though Storey quickly followed up his dumb op-ed with a series of apologies, they were apparently not accepted.
