Society has fallen further today. Here we will now have more mistreatment of women with them having to sputter terrible puns and act in middle school level theatrical productions by the future Judge Smails supporters at Bushwood CC.

All the Hasty Pudding Club is is a farm system for average summer stock players in wealthy lake oriented towns of New Hampshire, Ohio, and New York. Real theatre at Harvard is done over at the ART and within the Harvard Drama Programs.

Stop giving these untalented mostly rich kids publicity who use their "power" every year to pick their "Man Of The Year" and "Woman Of The Year" so they can claim they used to hang out with Jennifer Lawrence or Topher Grace.

Compare the Signet Society! https://www.google.com/search?q=signet+society

"The Signet Society was created in 1871 by a group of dissidents who decided to boycott the Hasty Pudding Club and the rival sophomore society, Pi Eta. Initially, the club's charter contained a "Pudding clause" prohibiting its members from belonging to the Hasty Pudding."

You can always tell a Harvard man, but you can't tell him much.

All single gender clubs, unless they're women only club. Seems reasonable!

In fact, the first single-sex organization to close at Harvard because of the new rule was a sorority.

Free at last, free at last, Thank God Almighty, Free At Last!

Oh, Brave New World, where one percenter men can't exculde the one percenter women they'll be marrying a few years from now!

Great blithering muttonchops! What next?

Is nothing sacred? Which bastion of civilization will fall next? What citadel of manliness will be undercut?

If we're not careful, smoking lounges and fishnet stocking-clad maidservants will be next!!!
