    It is just my observation but the SGs seem to wear way more makeup now than before. Is that being demanded of them? Then it is wrong. Also if it is true that they are being asked to wear VS padded bras, that is just bad in every way. WTF.

    OK, as I said, I didn't read the article due to the pay wall. If they are alleging verbal abuse, unrealistic demands regarding diet and makeup, hazing and mistreatment by professors that is serious stuff. Given the reactions, I thought this was criticism of Song Girls because the mere existence of the institution is inherently objectifying women. I should have known there was more to the story. Of course the allegations, if true, are wrong. Eating disorders are not a joke.

    Yep, I've been saying this for years and so has Old Scotty. Going after USC traditions is the leftist plan to erase all of it. If the Song Girls cannot survive then neither will Traveler.

    Robert E Lee’s horse was Traveller; USC’s is Traveler.

    Yup. Next they'll claim that the 80's rock band Blondie were Neo-Nazis because they named themselves after Adolf Hitler's dog, Blondi.

    Yeah, but Traveler's color is certainly problematic ......

    I see what you did there... Maybe you could have added the word "inappropriately"
