    KollegeKidd reports:

    Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., [was] founded at Howard University on Jan. 15, 1908. The group of men, whom all are homosexual, are alleging homophobia and gender discrimination by the sorority.

    News of MIAKAs first surfaced a couple years ago when men founded an unofficial chapter of AKA at Texas Southern University and Prairie view A&M.

    Members of the Greek community were shocked when the Tri Alpha Chapter of MIAKA presented photos of men adorned in pink and green and pearls, while throwing up their “pinkies.” People were even more shocked to learn the chapter had even filmed a probate show with sounds of the sorority’s famous call “skee wee” being heard in the background.

    See probate video below:


    There is inclusiveness and there is revisionism. While it’s understandable that the men of MIAKA want to feel included in their favorite sisterhood, it is a sorority for women. No men, gay or straight, or allowed to enter — just as no women are allowed to join all male fraternities.

    Is that discrimination — or just plain common sense?

    Sound off!
