Wow this is just sad. What looks to be either a fraternity or sports hazing event, two guys stick out their tongues as a third guy staples them to a board on the table. A fourth member bleeding from the arm is then tasked with removing the staples. You know, in these kids' minds they probably feel like they just made that transition from boy to man but in reality they just lost every ounce of dignity they had left. And while stunts like this are usually intended to prove one's toughness, they often come off feeling a little....gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But in many of these hazing incidents we can't help but notice the homoerotic undertones, like this story where am Alpha Delta Omega fraternity member at Hartwick College was spanked with a wooden paddle by his peers. I don't know about you all, but when we were in college spanking another guy with a wooden paddle or messing around with boys' tongues was the last thing on our mind.
