Choice is Subjective

DISSENT:

Some people are never satisfied.

The staff position belittles the significance of the Skull and Bones members' decision to induct women. For the Crimson staff, the only way to truly improve Harvard's final clubs is to eliminate them entirely. This is unnecessary.

Is elitism simply choosing to socialize with one group of people instead of another? If it is, then the staff position condemns final club members for making choice that we all must make.

When the by-laws of a club eliminate a specific group of people, true elitism exists. The single-sex policies of the final clubs unnecessarily remove half of the population from consideration automatically. However, choice of friends is a subjective matter, and should remain so.

We congratulate the members of the Skull and Bones. We only wish that Harvard's final clubs would follow their lead. Then we could finally be satisfied.
