FANGLE: Why Phi Delta Theta?
Andrew Carf: When I first came to school, I was kind of against the fraternity culture because of horror stories about hazing and binge drinking. I was a sheltered incoming freshman, but then, once I was brought around to the guys of Phi Delta
Theta by my freshman roommate, I discovered that that’s really not what it’s all about. We have our fun, but that’s a small portion of what we do.

Feminism important for every person, not just women

Society Staff Writer | Jessica Sees | js392211@ohio.edu

When people in modern society hear the term “feminist,” their minds paint a picture of an aggressive, man-hating woman with radical world views, which is not the truth behind feminism.

Women are breaking down the word “feminist” and making it a conversation about the solidarity and equality of the sexes on all levels.

Editor’s Note: FANGLE Magazine takes to the streets of Athens to interview the different individuals within crowds. This is a series inspired by the popular photo series “Humans of New York.” 

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 12.41.55 PMIn what ways do you embody and/or move past the image of the typical masculine man? Do you feel like society places too tight a box on “masculinity?
