Dear ‘Deranged’ Sorority Girl, I Would Love To Hire You

By  | 

beercupDear Rebecca Martinson (a.k.a. “Deranged” Sorority Girl),

Today I read that you officially resigned from your post at Delta Gamma after an e-mail lambasting your fellow sorority sisters for “FUCKING UP” on the sorority job went viral last week. I’m not sure what your scholastic plans are at the University of Maryland, or if perhaps you have that trusty college summer internship already lined up. I’m hoping that the publicity from last week has derailed your summer plans and that Delta Gamma’s loss is my gain. I would love to offer you a paid internship at Mommyish.

While I don’t condone some of your word choices — particularly the homophobic slur, mockery of special needs, and threats of violence — I think that with some sensitivity training, you could be a valuable addition to the Mommyish team. I like your enthusiasm  as well as your ability to take charge of utter incompetence as you see it.

If properly focused, your dedicated rage could be a huge help with our coverage of issues like rape culture, tabloids being douchey, as well as the occasional asshat mommy actress. I feel that your creative vocabulary and articulate takedown of perceived injustices would give you a wonderful skill set for blogging, which I would love to harness and foster on our platform.

Other outlets have called you and your email “deranged” and “insane” for your fierce dedication. But I see the ambition and promise of an enterprising young lady who devotes 150 percent to her team, and therefore expects the same in return à la Sheryl Sandberg, Marissa Mayer, and many other women with clout.

I look forward to hearing from you. Though please refrain from “cunt punting” me.

    I have to admit I’m intrigued with the love for this woman. She’d definitely generate page views. She might be hell in staff meetings though.

    Wow… really? I cant wait to be treated to her first article detailing the many perils of shopping in ghetto malls while privileged and white. I can only assume you plan to groom her as Rebecca Ecklers replacement, as having more than one deluded, self aggrandizing and intentionally polarizing writer on staff would take Mommyish in a rather unapologetically direction.

    • kneelbeforetigers

      Agreed– I would def make it a point to start the Mommyish boycott if they hired this overly privileged idiot.

      She’s probably dating DudeBro. Or his Maryland cousin.

    • Véronique Houde

      April 26, 2013 at 12:47 pm

      nah, dudebro would totally feel demasculinated and would run away from her as far as he can. after all, do you really think that he would succeed in “pounding that ass” so violently? lol

    Very interesting. It would be a rehabilitation project, redirecting her passion towards noble goals. I’d be interested to see if the editors could do it.

    I’d say go for it. I’d like to read her writing and get a sense of how she reads when edited and directed. The nice thing is, as with any good experiment, obtaining results that disprove the implicit, Pygmalion-esque hypothesis of the job offer would be of equal value.

    Or maybe, just maybe, hire real writers who need jobs instead of rewarding entitled kids by giving them unearned success. So tired of stunt writers like the slacker who wrote the pity party story for the WSJ.

    • Blueathena623

      April 25, 2013 at 9:47 pm

      I don’t understand the girl’s email. She’s mad because her sorority sisters are being boring at parties? Seriously, what is she talking about?

    • chickadee

      April 25, 2013 at 10:40 pm

      And I think ‘boring at parties’ translates as ‘sober and not interested in sexytimes with Sigma Nu dudes.’

    • Sara

      April 26, 2013 at 1:31 pm

      That bothered me too–I got the strong impression through her wording that “boring” is thinly veiled euphemism for “isn’t willing to have sex with any drooling, drunken idiot who comes along”. In other words, women with some standards and basic self-respect are actually doing something wrong in this girl’s eyes.

    • Some guy

      April 26, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      No doubt her real bitch is that her sorority sisters aren’t putting out for the brothers. Future career as a Zumba instructor perhaps?

    • chickadee

      April 26, 2013 at 1:40 pm

      I agree. But then, my experiences with the Greek system suggest that this attitude is more the norm than not…for example, one of my former student assistants was fined by her (social, not service) sorority for not being ‘enthusiastic’ at a mixer once, so my opinion of the concept of these things is pretty low.

    • Benjamin Gardner Jacoby

      April 29, 2013 at 10:07 pm

      Maybe you’re just falling prey to confirmation bias here? Because you say in your response to Sara below that you already have some negative experiences with Greek life.

      To keep is as short as possible, I just think there are a lot more variables in the mental calculus than just the “sexytimes” consideration. There is a vast range of possible social interactions that come between standing awkwardly in the corner and drunken sex on the spectrum of interesting.

    • chickadee

      April 30, 2013 at 12:41 am

      There certainly are many possible nuances that we may have missed here, but the ranting email didn’t have any truck with nuance. I would be careful with calling a negative interpretation of this email ‘confirmation bias,’ since Martinson herself provided one hell of a negative impression and pretty much reflected my previous experiences with sororities and girls who devote their college lives to them. Perhaps I was being a bit flippant when I decided that Martinson wanted the girls to put out. She definitely expected them to be ‘fun,’ which frankly makes them sound like they are meant to pander to the boys’ expectations and even entertain them. Makes them sound like hired escorts, in my opinion. Why put the burden of fun on the girls? Maybe the Sigma Nu guys were tooly or boring or boorish and the girls were not interested in putting themselves out for guys like that.

      I don’t think we need to use a scientific definition to dissect my interpretation of Martinson’s email, especially one that implies that I am specifically seeking out elements that support my negative impression of sororities. Martinson pretty much handed me THAT information on a plate.

    • Benjamin Gardner Jacoby

      April 30, 2013 at 3:30 am

      I didn’t really mean it as an intensely scientific term, I just didn’t know what else to call it. I am not really bothered by your opinion of Martinson in particular, rather by the comment that “my experiences with the Greek system suggest that this attitude is more the norm than not”. Also, please don’t read anything I’m about to write as condescending, I’m just going to try to give a fuller explanation and be as thorough as necessary.

      As you may have guessed from my defense of the situation, I was part of Greek life in my (relatively recent) college days. For what it’s worth, fraternity and sorority life always seemed to me to get a bad reputation because of movies like Animal House more than anything else. A lot of people tend to be idiots in college. It just makes a better story when Greek kids do this stuff because it fits into the neat little narrative that Greeks are all jerks or idiots or psychopaths or entitled snobs. But we’re not, no more than anyone else.

      The big issue that I have with your entire outlook on the situation is that you seem to think she’s asking something degrading of the girls in her sorority by asking them to display interest in the guys they’re throwing a party with. I just can’t agree with you there. The point of having party with someone else is engagement and interaction. That’s not a gender specific requirement. I guarantee the guys were expected to put just as much effort into being sociable.

      I’m a little taken aback that you view “being fun” as pandering. This party she was talking about didn’t just happen out of the blue. It wasn’t forced on the girls there. If they as a chapter didn’t want to do social events, there is nothing stopping them from politely declining the offer. The fact that it went through suggests to me that at least some critical mass of the girls were interested in hanging out with the guys in question. So why were there so many people just not taking part in this event that they all, at least tacitly, agreed to?

      Let me put it this way: if I ask you out on a date (chickadee struck me as a girl name, sorry if that’s a bad guess but you’ll still get the idea) and you agree to come, there is a non-gender specific social expectation that you will interact with me. It would be rude for you to just sit at a table and ignore me for a whole meal. It would also be rude if I did the same to you. Now, obviously if you are intensely displeased by my general appearance or demeanor, you are free to leave, as am I, but barring that the expectation is that if you have no major problems with me, you will actively involve yourself in the date. That’s not about pandering, it’s about being polite.

      It’s the same way with a Greek life party. If you, as a sorority agree to a function with a fraternity, you are expected to engage at least superficially, otherwise what’s the point of being there in the first place? It’s also a bit rude to your hosts to show up and take advantage of their hospitality and not even engage in the most basic of interactions. Again, it’s not about sex or pandering or gender roles. It’s just basic common courtesy. If the guys are so awful, it would not be an inappropriate response to leave, but that wasn’t the vibe I got from the email. Perhaps I was wrong, though.

      Again, I first commented mainly because I just think you’re being a bit unfair to the Greek system in general, but hey, at least I was honest about my biases.

    • chickadee

      April 30, 2013 at 10:41 am

      And the system is precisely what I take issue with. A mixer date is not the same thing as an individual date, as I have to option to tell you no and suffer no repercussions from that, whereas the girls in this sorority would not appear to be in that position. A mixer date is a group obligation, and apparently not being fun’ at the mixer — making the boys unhappy, or not entertaining them — will get you in trouble with the social chair. Maybe frats don’t fine members for missing mixers. Some sororities do. When you get fined for not going on a date, that doesn’t sound too egalitarian to me.

      Sororities are still stuck, to some extent, in the mindset that the system gets you a boyfriend or a ring by spring. Any organization that excoriates its members for not pretending to have fun at an event that they aren’t enjoying has some real problems. And I didn’t get the impression that those girls were free to leave the event…

    • Katie

      April 26, 2013 at 11:40 pm

      I was in a sorority and while I don’t condone the language or tone of the email, I know where this girl is coming from. It’s most likely a group of girls who go to the social event and stand in a circle of girls by themselves and don’t attempt to socialize with anyone else. You join Greek life knowing it’s a largely social experience so it can be frustrating when exec members set up events to build stronger partnerships with frats and members attend but stand around and don’t socialize with the group or talk to the boys hosting them for the night. It has nothing to do with “girls not putting out”.

      Typecasting all sororities into slutty girls who hook up with whatever frat guy they talk to doesn’t make you much better than this girl and her outrageous rant.

    • Blueathena623

      April 27, 2013 at 8:08 am

      Uh, did you mean to reply to me? I said nothing at all about being slutty. I just did not understand what the rant was about.

    • Courtney Lynn

      April 28, 2013 at 9:49 am

      I never joined a sorority and had no interest to, but I do know that Greek life is a community in itself and it sounds like this girl is frustrated that her sisters are acting stand-offish and not really being part of the community. Like Katie said, nothing to do with sex. You don’t join a community to stand around and not talk to anyone. Get some social skills.

      They wont hire real writers who need a job because they must be in New York. You know, for a site that talks so much shit about Marissa Mayer’s no telecommuting policy and how its inflexible for mothers, they also don’t have telecommuting jobs.

      only the interns need to be in NY, because it wouldn’t be cool to hire an intern and then leave them off to flounder on their own. We are all over the country and telecommute via skype. Besides, anyone can submit pitches to Koa!

      April 26, 2013 at 4:33 pm

      You must be joking right? Are you a writer? Did someone say that they didn’t like your book? Are you hoping that insulting the hiring practices of an exceptionally well curated and written website will over shadow the fact that perhaps your maybe just not that talented? I ask these questions not to be mean, but to be honest. There are all types of writers out there. Some are polite and some are offensive. Some used to be considered offensive, but now they are considered literary geniuses. It is quite alright for you to not like Ms. Martinson’s style. She is not for everyone, because simply not everyone is for everyone.

      And lastly. Are you really in a position to deem anything worthy or unworthy of success? Seems like a quit a bit of power you would like to have.

    • Katia

      April 26, 2013 at 8:39 pm

      Are you serious? Check out any of Koa or Rebecca’s articles if you think this site has such high standards for quality

    • Andrea

      May 5, 2013 at 10:21 am

      Wow. Yes, I am an employed writer who for the record has never pitched or applied to Mommyish, so this isn’t personal sour grapes. But perhaps its general sour grapes over professional writers being passed over for people who have expressed no desire or qualifications to be published. And, also for the record, I enjoy Mommyish, that’s why I’m here!

      Is it so wrong to want to see my peers who have worked hard at their craft hired over someone who has expressed no desire or talent for writing? (Again, in general, I don’t know anyone who has tried to work here.) I don’t find the girl’s letter offensive, I found it entertaining, but I don’t think anyone including herself would call it professional level writing. I’d also, crazily, like to see Moms working for a site that is kind of “written for, written by” Moms. I don’t think that’s weird or small minded of me nor does it exhibit any power hungry tendencies. I feel you’ve read quite a few things I didn’t say into my comment.

  9. Sara

    April 25, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Wow, such a wide variance of opinions…..for my part, I’m not a fan. She appears to have confused “edgy, intelligent and brutally honest” with “go with whatever word vomit tumbles out of your mouth and don’t bother to filter”. Contrary to popular opinion, they are NOT the same thing.

    She also (and I have to admit, this is a major pet peeve of mine) seems not to have gotten the memo that when profanity is just shoved indiscriminately wherever you can technically fit it in, it totally loses its impact. I’m not a fan of profanity in every discourse anyway–I think it tends to make the speaker sound unintelligent and like she simply lacks the vocabulary to use more interesting words. But I acknowledge that an isolated, strategically placed four-letter word can emphasize the speaker’s point. Meyer, however, completely and totally overuses it in an obvious attempt at shock value. The effect is less shocking, more juvenile and irritating.

    I’m sure if you’re looking for a paid intern, you can find far more gifted and less obnoxious writers out there.

      I’m guessing she was drunk when she wrote it, and probably half kidding through most of it. What gets me is that this would have been a non-story if the author of this had been a frat boy instead of a sorority girl.

    • Benjamin Gardner Jacoby

      April 29, 2013 at 10:18 pm

      Exactly. Frustrated, drunk, and trying to be crude enough that the shock kept people’s attention instead of just skimming the email and moving it to “Trash”.

      I think this was a joke. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s how I read it. And I do think it’s okay to “pretend to give validation to a fool” for the sake of a funny read.

    • once upon a time

      April 25, 2013 at 7:58 pm

      Because she’s a bully who espouses racist, sexist and classist ideals, and because people are sick of seeing privileged college students get ahead while people who are willing to work hard and not coast along on their infamy are struggling to find work.

      I’m really disgusted that Mommyish has put this forward and I’m disgusted that anyone is agreeing with it. This girl needs to disappear until she’s willing to work towards repairing the damage she’s done to her reputation – unfortunately, because humanity is just fucked, I suspect this whole thing will do wonders for her career. Meanwhile, the rest of us chumps are punished for not being awful, useless people.

    • MarisaSays

      April 25, 2013 at 8:11 pm

      As I wrote above, I read this as a joke. I’m not sure how this is a serious matter worth getting so disgusted about, and I’m also certainly not endorsing this girl’s gross behavior or the homophobic, sexist and mean language she employed in her letter.

      Again, I just think there are more important things to be so angry about. But to each her own, for sure.

    • once upon a time

      April 25, 2013 at 10:10 pm

      Even if you think the email is a joke, you don’t think that the disgusting attitudes in her tweets are enough to be angry about?

      Even if you think the email is a joke, you don’t think that the use of the words retard and faggot is offensive?

      Even if you think the email is a joke, you don’t think it fails utterly, thus making the use of the those slurs reprehensible?

      The person I’m personally so angry about it is because it’s emblematic of a problem that I’m sure many of us have encountered. We’ve all been bullied by fellow students, co-workers, or organisation leaders on a power trip. For the most part we ignore it and try to get on with our lives, but this email is living, breathing proof of the intimidation tactics that many of us have faced or will face throughout our lives. The only good thing about it is that it’s opened a dialogue, but if this girl is rewarded for her bigotry and reliance on intimidation tactics with a paid internship, then Mommyish is telling us not to bother fighting bullies cause they’re always going to win in the end.

    • MarisaSays

      April 25, 2013 at 10:53 pm

      I don’t think the original email was a joke, and didn’t write that. I wrote that I read this post from Koa as a joke.

      Similarly, I didn’t suggest that the original email wasn’t worth angry comments. I was surprised that this post from Koa had (at the time of my original comment) only angry comments.

      So, with all due respect, you’re debating something I didn’t say. FWIW, I do think that the use of words like “faggot” and “retarded” are offensive and find the use of hate speech reprehensible.

      April 25, 2013 at 10:46 pm

      Not all kids who come from privileged backgrounds are racist or sexist. Some of them are good people and expect to work and study hard. This particular young woman is a bully who has a warped set of values, but not everyone who is middle class or upper middle class (if she had any real money she wouldn’t be going to a public school for goodness sake) is bad. It is the epitome of classism that encourages the idea that just because a college student has a parent or two who have a good income that it makes them incapable of making solid and positive contributions to society. I do agree with the point that this will do wonders for a career. We value cruel and mean people. We give them reality shows and put them on magazine covers.

    I hope you are just being funny, because she put down in print sentiments that Mommyish says they don’t like….making fun of gays, mentally handicapped people…..just what you need. In fact, what you have here is the female version of Eve’s DudeBro. She has the same internet IQ and judgment level. I’ve taught people like this. You don’t want her.

    • NeuroNerd

  15. Frances Locke

    April 25, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Honestly, if this letter had been written to some frat boys by a dudebro type then it wouldn’t be front page news. But because she is a woman and therefor must act like a lady at all times (GAG) it’s a shit storm. I call shenanigans. I read the letter in its entirety and I think it was hilarious and I doubt she was being completely serious.

    • Lawcat

      April 26, 2013 at 12:37 am

      As a former sorority exec member, I laughed so hard.

      This is everything I wish I could say when only 20 girls would show up to a social with an “uncool” frat and talk about how they were going to hang out with X, Y, Z later or leave after 10 min or not talk to anyone. And then 120 girls would show up the next week if the social was with a “hot” frat. It’s frustrating when people forget basic social/etiquette skills.

      And you’re right…if it was a dude, it wouldn’t get any news coverage. As my social chair husband would attest, they routinely say the same things, although maybe not in writing.

    Wow, if Mommyish hires someone who so blatantly disregarded manners, tact, and sensitivity in a foul-mouthed rant to write for their site, I will no longer be a reader. Someone who is so extreme in their hate, racism, and homophobia probably has a very low chance of successfully completing even the most rigorous sensitivity training and I cringe at the idea of reading anything else she might have to say. This would be a POOR choice by what is otherwise an excellent site for women. She gives women a BAD name.

    Miss Martinson embodies the killer combo of Denis Leary and Heather Chandler. She unintentionally beckons discussion of our reaction to mannishly aggressive women. The key word here being “unintentionally”. Come on, don’t hire an overly tanned social experiment to intern for you! I want the job sooooooooo bad… and I too am completely undeserving of it! Which I’m guessing appeals to your whole thinking-outside-the-box approach to new hires.

    Whatever I love you.

      AWESOME… if you’re an asshole. Do not make jokes for a living, your career will suffer the “too soon?” syndrome. In this case yes TOO F’ING SOON. If Sarah Silverman has taught us one thing it’s that tasteless terrorists references need at least a full month before they’re ripe for humor, and even then… you are not Sarah Silverman.

    I’m sorry, but attempting to capitalize on this immature young woman’s “fame” is pretty pathetic. By the time this girl is knocking on your door this summer, she will be old news. No one will care you have an overprivileged bimbo with a limited vocabulary authoring your fluff articles. Perhaps I’m missing something here, because it would seem there are an abundance of talented, passionate writers out there who are far more deserving. While it may not be trendy these days, maintaining some dignity is still a worthwhile endeavor. Maybe you guys ought to sleep on it before making any hasty decisions.

    Give this girl her own column and literary freedom. She is a comic genius. Frankly, all she really did was call her sorority sisters out on their own rude and stupid behavior, in a rude way herself. Freedom of speech. Plus the other sorority girls were probably a bunch of catty little things too.

    Or you could hire actual writers, or those of us who have voiced huge interest in your internships but are too far away, especially since some of us are much more eloquent and biting without needing to use slurs or losing our cool.

      Haha spot on.
      I’m sure that even in NYC they could choose more eloquent writers so it must be a preference issue more than a supply and demand one

      a telecommuting intern is kind of a contradiction, isn’t it? 😉 as for the authors, it’s a different story for them to be spread out all over the place

      Just wanna jump in real quick — most of the writers here telecommute (I live in Missouri, for example), and you can always submit writing to Koa for consideration. And the Anonymous Mom column is open to submissions from anyone, regardless of gender/writing experience/whatevs! I’m not sure, either, but I think this article was being tongue-in-cheek.

      I had a hunch it was tongue in cheek, but honestly I wasn’t 100% sure, and I can be a bit of a snark-bucket. I actually have an anonymous “mom” waiting in the wings for when I get the balls to send it (It’s a scandal!), as well as some samples that still need work.

      Also, I’m a little sad to see it looks like you all telecommute, I was just telling my partner that next time we’re in NYC I wanted to drop off cookies or something. Pre-packaged cookies, because I promise I’m not a creepy stalker dude who wants to sabotage the company.

    Sure. What the world needs is for more bullies to be rewarded for debasing and humiliating other people. Yes she is committed. A zealot. A true believer. And she is willing to scream and curse for the noblest of causes…getting dates for a fraternity. What mystifies me is why her sisters put up with this crap. She resigned? I think that all of the sisters should have gotten together and fired her sorry you know what. I think that Anthony Wiener is running for office again. She could work his campaign. Might be a perfect fit.

    As the mother of a teen with autism, I will no longer be looking at your site. My son has been the subject of ridicule by people like her for his whole life. He is twice the person she’s ever going to be, no one would ever give him the time of day, even though my gifted son has a wonderful, unique, and refreshing take on the world he has to live in. Maybe you should spend more time seeking out genuinely interestingly new points of view that intelligent mother’s want to hear from and less time rewarding those who’s only lessons in life seem to have beento not be boring while making guys happy and it’s better to shop where there aren’t so many poor and black people.

    I don’t really care either way, but I voted yes. That being said I refuse to give her credit for “ass hat.” That has been a favorite term of mine for years. I have referred to thousands as “ass hats” in the past years, and I refuse to give credit to some college kid for the term. Not to mention “cunt punch” is merely a less funny version of “kick her in the baby maker,” which has also been one of my favorite saying for some years now. Thanks,

    Oh yes, reward this kind of disgusting and vile behavior, because that’s what she needs, a fucking reward for her homophobia and complete lack of empathy or any other identifiable human emotion.

    it shouldnt. Im sure she regrets it enough.

    Really? Of course the nasty, over privileged little snob gets rewarded. Are you kidding me??? This generation has NO sense of responsibility and this is why. Shame on you Mommyish for letting Beca feel that she can be a nasty little bitch and still have whatever she wants. I hope this haunts he forever. I hope her parents are equally embarrassed for raising such a little snot!

    Please no. Why would you want to reward her for being an obnoxious, racist, classless bully? Not to mention she is apparently a pimp since all she cares about is getting the frat brothers laid. Give the job to the girl who made the email public.

    So many young women would love an opprotunity to have a job in media, especially for such a female oriented and all around awesome site. Don’t reward her for being a twat. I’m saying that as a Delta Gamma sister.

    So I’m hoping this “letter” is a joke and Mommyish is not literally offering this girl a paid internship.

    If this is serious, it is quite contradictory to what Mommyish claims to stand for. For example,if DudeBro had written such a profanity laced, verbally abusive, threatening email to Mommyish writers, you would have taken him to task and shared how such filth proves his ignorance and support of rape culture, but this female, college co-ed, sends it out as a group email to women she calls sisters, and you offer her a job. Really????? This doesn’t even take into account Rebecca Martinson’s offensive tweets that are easily available online (apparently Mommyish didn’t use its Google machine in this case). Tweets that belittle those she sees as beneath her; i.e. Mexicans, the poor, aging, and overweight.

    This email is a perfect example of cyber-bullying, and I’ll bet it is something this young woman has practiced on a regular basis. Many young people post and share things digitally as a way to get attention, and guess what, by offering this woman a job based on this email, you are proving it works!

    I knew girls like her in high school and college. Hell, I TEACH girls like her in middle school. And I’m not worried about her future because karma is a bitch and what goes around will come back to bite her in the ass.

    When it comes to the little darlings that act like this in my school, I just remind myself – I have to deal with their unfortunate personalities for only one year, their parents have to deal with these monsters they’ve created for the rest of their lives.

    And I have a feeling her sorority was pretty pleased to receive her letter of resignation.

    Thanks for encouraging disgusting behavior is women! This sad excuse for a woman has insulted Jews, Mexicans, blacks, Asians, elderly and anyone who is not “Greek” on her Twitter page. Classy move Mommyish…classy move. I won’t be back on this site. Get a clue.

    I think this girl is an entitled stuck up B*T*H who needs to be smacked in the face with the real world… Wow….

    Maybe if she learned about some other things, she could garner and focus her passion into something worthwhile and productive rather than writing degrading, nasty, superficial emails to people that are under her guidance.

    I wonder if she circled their fat too.

    I don’t think anyone should hire her. It shows that she thinks she equates leadership with bullying, threats, and verbal abuse.

    She did have legitimate complaints- some of the behaviors she described were rude. But I’ve supervised staff, and you do not send people scathingly insulting, expletive-laced, slur-filled e-mails where you threaten to assault them to correct minor infractions such as “not being adequately social” or “having friends in other frats” or even “being goofy at kickball tournaments.” The fish rots from the head down, and if her sorority was being cliquish and rude, it’s her fault for being, well, cliquish and rude.
