Yale fraternity pledges' chant about rape in initiation ritual

A Yale fraternity is under fire for a pledging ritual. It’s not what they did, but what they said. The potential pledges of Delta Kappa Epsilon’s Phi chapter marched through Yale’s campus chanting rape-trivializing phrases such as "no means yes, yes means anal." Oh… did I mention most of the first-year female students are housed in the area where the fraternity performed this stunt? Some students were offended. The Yale Women's Center Board was livid. Then the story took off when the Yale Daily News posted the video on youtube and it went viral.

So here's the thing. A forum was held. The fraternity apologized. Pledging activities were suspended and that seems to be the end of it.

We want to hear from you. Does the punishment fit the crime? Should Yale come down harder on DKE and those involved? Tell us what you think. Kyra Phillips may read some of your comments on during the 10 o’clock hour of CNN Newsroom.
