  1. 1. Saint Mary’s Chant and Tweets By: Thomas Reynolds, Jess Lynds, Matt Malizia
  2. 2. Saint Mary’s Chant Background information • In a video posted on Instagram, Saint Mary’s orientation officials lead students in chanting: “SMU boys we like them YOUNG! Y is for your sister. O is for oh so tight. U is for underage. N is for no consent. G is for grab that ass.” • Following a massive public backlash from politicians, school administrators and students, Jared Perry, president of the Saint Mary’s Students’ Association, apologized Thursday for performing the chant with 80 male and female orientation leaders. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7ghKIwCpzc
  3. 3. Tweets Background information • Members of the Saint Mary’s football team allegedly sent hateful, racist and sexist tweets. • "b**ch get on yo knees.“ • "to that b**ch that bit me last night. Hope you're dead in a ditch. you are scum."
  4. 4. Reaction to Chant
  5. 5. Is it just a problem at Saint Mary’s University?
  6. 6. Dalhousie Student • “First of all, I do not think the people who partook in that chant “believed” it was okay to chant these things. Not being a part of the twitter community, I can’t comment on how it was propagated on social media, but I think it was a combination of peer pressure, tradition, and ignorance that allowed this event to happen. I think this event says something about the system of habit and tradition that is hard to speak out against more than the students that led and partook in the cheer. I have been given no proof that those students are misogynistic or sexually violent, so I look instead to reasons no one has said something sooner. I think the school should too.”
  7. 7. Dalhousie Student • “I do not think this is an isolated incident. I read in the newspaper not long after about a similar problem at a university out west. I have never been a part of frosh events myself, but I have heard horror stories about activities that are far more threatening to human health than this chant. I can’t verify if they are true, but I am sure most university students will agree they have been a part or have witnessed something in a dorm room that is far worse than this event. None of these are okay, and we do need to foster a culture of saying no. I think it got so much attention because so many people partook; I don’t know if dal does group events like that. I think it is sad people are reading this as something inherently wrong with SMU students; that is an ignorant assumption and certainly not the case.”
  8. 8. Frosh Leader • “In my own opinion, I do not think any of us thought it was an appropriate thing to say. We all knew what we were saying, and it definitely wasn’t a judge of any of our characters. We just didn’t think. It was something that had happened previous years, and it was a lack of judgment. When you are in a group where nobody speaks up about an issue, it tends to get overlooked in life and majority thought takes over.”
  9. 9. Frosh Leader • “Definitely not. This year alone, at least three other schools were caught with similar derogatory incidents. Culture promotes these things and makes it seem okay, especially in relation to universities.”
  10. 10. Discussion: Why do you think these students thought it was okay to say/post these things?
  11. 11. Rape Culture • Rape culture is a concept which links rape and sexual violence to the culture of a society, and in which prevalent attitudes and practices normalize, excuse, tolerate, and even condone rape. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5tFZbgxN6s
  12. 12. After the rape-chant incident at SMU many people came forward wondering "what is the difference between this chant and certain music?“
  13. 13. Pop Culture • Pop culture has influenced our lives in ways we could never fathom. • It creates social boundaries and norms among society. • “Fashion industry tells us what to wear in magazines and advertisements, these norms are reinforced over and over again by television, actors, film, musicians, and celebrities who embrace the fashion rends. Stores begin to only sell a certain type of clothing, and it becomes increasingly more difficult to not conform to the fashion norm.”- The Phil
  14. 14. Pop Culture • “Recently, Netmums published a survey claiming that 80% of parents have found their children copying explicit lyrics or dance moves from music videos”
  15. 15. Pop Culture • Pop Culture is way more then just the music or fashion business. • Last fall, Tosh.0 made jokes about rape. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isSJjwdXgho
  16. 16. Discussion • What do you think it is alright for comedians or to make jokes about rape? Is it crossing a line? • Why do you think the audience laughed at this joke? • Do you think this is similar to the frosh leaders who said the chant?
  17. 17. Television and Rape Culture • Rape culture is embedded into our T.V. shows and films. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOKKzSnyFTo#aid=P-XXqNRwSs0
  18. 18. Television and Rape Culture • Research has proven that these jokes in our Pop Culture has impacted how we view victims and rapists. • These jokes also affect the Rapist in the sense that there are degrees of rape and some “don’t count”.

  29. 29. Discussion Robin Thicke’s response to the negative critique of the song was “ Oh you know… that’s only for extra religious people.” Do you think it is only “extra religious people” who were offended by the lyrics and their interpretations?
  30. 30. Project Unbreakable • Began in October 2011 in hopes to help victims heal after their trauma. • Grace Brown, 19, began this project with thousands of images of victims. • Since 2011, project Unbreakable has flooded social media. • http://project-unbreakable.org/
  31. 31. Christianity on the Decline? • The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey has warned that Christianity is just a “generation away from extinction”
  32. 32. Pop Culture replacing religion? • “Christianity will go, it will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that. I’m right and I’ll be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now. I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity.” - John Lennon
  33. 33. Parallels between Pop Music and Religion • Religion-like phenomena within youth culture of pop music • Young people's musical experiences are adequate to religion • Music has replaced religion as young people’s form of expression
  34. 34. Pop Culture influence vs. Religious influence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZkC_fNxmQk
  35. 35. Discussion • Do you think that pop culture weighs heavy on the actions of society? • Do you think that the lack of religion in Canadian society made the chant and tweets seem okay to say/post?
