Hazing incidents for the most part /should/ be laughed at.
A&M's Corps of Cadets has a tight noose around our necks and if we do anything out of line at all we get in major trouble.
Guess what is considered "hazing"/unapproved (we can get in trouble for) here?
1) Having a buddy (fellow corps member) cut your hair, reguardless if you're a freshman-senior.
(we still do it)
2) More than 40 pushups or 40 situps in a 10 minute period without a 10 minute rest period.
(F that, we don't smoke PT tests with abiding by such rules!
3) Touching a freshman, period, as in even adjusting a part of their uniform or moving them aside.
And that's just a taste...
We do things equivalent to the scandalous nature of the cheerleaders, but it's not sexual and it hurts no one. Hazing is such bull**** in the ways that it is defined these days. I feel like a little school girl when talking to old Aggies that had it rougher than we did. Don't get me wrong, it's a very hard first year for freshmen, but it could be a LOT worse.
