Jenna Starts With Basics

HAZING – According to Wikipedia, hazing is “the practice of rituals and other activities involving harassment, abuse, or humiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group”. In other words, my own in fact, hazing can be simply categorized as bullying. Hazing is seen not only in student social interactions, such as sports teams and fraternities or sororities, but hazing also takes place in the military, where many are viewed as heroic figures.

Although leaders within these groups find it necessary to maintain tradition, there is no need for psychological and/or physical humiliation to go on. These individuals feel it is necessary to be degraded because they feel they’ll be accepted. The generation nowadays goes above and beyond to fit these standards.

Even though an individual is pledging and has a willingness to do so, this is still unacceptable behavior. There is a blurred line between what is OK and what is not. Hazing has little to no boundaries or limitations. Where will the line be drawn clear enough for people to understand this is not a proper action for acceptance into a new group?
