Hazing and Harassment in Extra Curriculars

Posted 24 July 2014 - 01:08 PM

I just received an email from the president of OSU about our marching band being under fire for sexual harassment, causing the director to be terminated.

email goes as follows:
Spoiler


Have you or anybody you know have any stories about hazing or harassment?

Also, will we still get to have awesomeness on this level?

An example of behavior..

Quote

The probe was prompted by the complaint of a parent, who said members must swear secrecy oaths "about objectionable traditions and customs," including members marching across the field in their underwear under the supervision of band directors and staff. One female student said more senior members of the band warn new members about the event, and advise them to wear items that provide "fuller coverage."

Assistant Director Michael Smith said he'd witnessed the underwear march though some wear pajamas or shorts while others go completely naked, according to witnesses and said he didn't believe what he'd seen. An associate band director, Christopher Hech, said he recalled a student having alcohol poisoning at the event some years ago.

Pretty much all of mine are from band camp and work, unless you count being alienated by the other cheerleaders.

Band camp:
Switched to bass drum because there were too many flutes and no bass drums. Section leader, who was scary looking as he had long, dyed-black hair, yet he was already balding, crazy eyes, all black clothes with chains, goth boots, emo cuts, etc. He was a piece of work. We had to go to the music shop during break at band camp (before we started going to Kentucky) and he threatened to rape me and said he was gonna pass me around to the other drummers. dafuq? Luckily he never did.

Another drummer (next year, first year of Kentucky band camp) was begging me for a blow job. Naturally, I refused. The whole ride up there, he begged. The whole camp, he begged. On the second to last day of camp I think I finally was like "alright, I'll suck your dick. Meet me at restrooms at 9 pm". He was all excited and stfu for the rest of practice. After dindins I showered in the other bands' bathroom and just went to bed. The next morning he was all pissed like "Where the fuck were you I waited for an hour!" I was just like "lol you was at the wrong bathroom, ho." He never bothered me again. :D

There was this slow kid who played tuba and all the drummers pissed on his sleeping bag. They got in big trouble, but never got kicked out because their parents were teachers and gave the most money to the boosters. :/

I could go on and on.

Work:
Got the usual "hey go ask bossman why you never got a wire stretcher" but I didn't fall for it. One time they tried to hastle me about "floatation booties". At first I didn't believe them, then they said they were things you put over your boots. I thought maybe they were talking about the blue things you put over the boots so you don't drag mud and muck through the place, like they wear at hospitals or when the cable guy comes to your house. They tried to get me to call bossman, then that's when I realized what was up.

The alternative ending was he said "thank you!" and gave you his desserts for a few days and you were left wondering wtf happened in *THAT* shower!?
