A fraternity was accused of a Title IX violation on the grounds that dancing in a Teletubby costume is sexual harassment.
Delta Tau Delta at the University of Missouri had to meet with the school’s “Title IX Coordinator” because a member dressed up like a Teletubby, a children’s television character, and danced in the street during sorority recruitment.
It is not clear how anyone could look at these dance moves and see them as even remotely sexual. Perhaps for this reason, the coordinator decided to dismiss the case. It’s unclear who filed the complaint under Title IX, a 1972 federal sex-discrimination statute.
