Whats your opinion on this? some greeks that are paper get more respect than some of these Aux, members that pledged hard to get to where they are. Do you think they should be greek first, then become a sweetheart,dove,etc? And What are the stereotypes of the members of these organizations?

I'm not saying we hate Iotas, i was just saying there has been NO ATTEMPTS to make a constitutional bond with the Iotas or the Kappas and probably never will be. I get along just fine with the Iotas, and most Kappas but we don't be on no brother/sister type with anybody b/c our organization wasnt founded that way. We're just cool...

I've visited a school that has an frat called Sigma Rhomeo... I also know a woman who's a omega "gem" and I asked her about it when she wore her jacket one day but she didn't elaborate on it too much. It was almost like she didn't think I would understand... :?

^^^I have a question and I hope no one takes offense. If you all and the Zetas are constitutionally bound as frat/soror, then what is the purpose of Sigma Doves? This is genuine curiosity. My mom is Zeta but she has a negative view of yall's Doves and is therefore biased. Disregard this question if yall do not acknowledge Doves
Off topic....how did moms feel when you became a AKA?....lol
Dang who dug this thread up??? :lol: Wasn't nothing she could really say or do. My mind was made up 8)

I think that it dont matter what org you join...regardless of what org you in your still goin to do what you did before you join...so if you was a freak/hoe before you became a Pearl or sweetheart or watever then your goin to be one its not like we require that you be one...we would prefer that you be yourself...tis better to be hated for who you than liked for who you are not...but it goes the other way to...i like my Omega Pearls, Gems, Sweethearts, cas they cool to be around with. More so they provide support and counseling. One of my closest friends is a Que-E...Dont get me wrong there are some that look good as hell but i was a real nicca before i pledged and im a real nicca after that...so its watever...like jay-z said...You are who you are playa. :lol:

Im actually a member of an auxilliary organization. I'm a Sigma Dove(Fall '04) and I feel that why aux groups get so much down talk from people who aren't involved in them is because no one has really taken time to find out what they are for. Everyone is really quick to classify us as "groupies" to the frat but its quite the contrary. My big brothers of Phi Beta Sigma on our yard respect us and treat us like true little sisters. We went through a pledging process just like any other greek org so why can't we get similar respect. I can see where people come from when they say we're not greek but if you think about it we actually are in a sense because we have a greek letter (greek is greek whether its 3 letter or 1 letter) and we pledge too. I don't know about other auxillaries but Sigma Doves pledge in order to understand the basic fundamental principles of PBS. We help them with events and such and we also help the boys during their intake process. We DON'T sleep with the frat We DON'T clean and do all that other dumb "maid" stuff We DON'T do anything that would degrade us in anyway shape or form During our process we are taught the values of finer womanhood and how to always be a lady and uphold a good name for ourselves. So I dont know where all this groupie stuff came from but I want to set the record straight because that is not what we are. As far as the sorority relationship goes...its questionable and it varies from yard to yard. Yes, Zeta Phi Beta is constitutionally bound to Phi Beta Sigma so they are their true sisters. I will always aknowledge that. Some Zetas like us, some don't. I think the ones who don't like us don't like us because they don't know or understand why we're their. I think anyone who is greek and questions the purpose of aux groups needs to enlighten themselves and stop using their ignorance as an excuse because I'm sure we all know what excuses are... Anyway, I respect the Zetas very much and I would never overstep my boundary as a dove because I recognize that we are a small part of the fraternity. However we are a helpful part and that is what a lot of people tend to overlook. What a lot of people fail to realize(even some Zeta's) is that many Zeta's started out as Doves! Somewhere along the line, something happend and the tightness that the Blue and White family had sort of disinigrated between Zeta's and doves. I've heard that other sororities don't really mess with aux groups either. It also depends on the campus. My position on that is this: The organizations you join dont make the person you are, you make the organization. I feel that aux ladies who decide to join sororities are even more of an asset because of the information they know and have learned that could better the sorority. Basically what I'm saying is that NO, we are not groupies, hoes, or maids. We have distinct purposes and we carry them out as we should. For those who dont know, now you know.

The Divine Nine of the NPHC are non-HAZING organizations if those are the "other greek org" that you are talking about. And even if you had a process does not mean that you will get respect from everyone.

You're not greek. Here's the definition of Auxiliary-1) Giving assistance or support; helping. 2)Acting as a subsidiary; supplementary Definition of subsidiary-1) Serving to assist or supplement; auxiliary. 2) Secondary in importance; subordinate. So basically you are a support group it looks like =-)

So then why didn't you just become a Zeta? That's one of their principals if I'm not mistaken and they are the LEGAL sisters of PBS.

Okay I guess you DID know that.

Uh....but you just said the Zetas were the true sisters.... :???: :???: :???:

Okay, that's good.

How many? :lol: The only Zetas I know of that were in any kind of aux membership was Iota Sweethearts but you are probably somewhat right.

You're saying that if all members of a sorority would of joined an secondary group, an "aux" group, that we would of been better members b/c we were aux members first? You're kidding right...... Wow.
