What could be more refined and decorous than an Ivy League squash match? Anything up to and including a Hell’s Angels rally, if this report from Dartmouth is any indication:
Words such as “dick,” “fag” and “****sucker” were repeatedly shouted at the visitors Wednesday, many times with “f******” added as an adjective. Harvard’s female players eventually sought the protection of an assistant coach after they said they were called “whores” and “sluts” while they cheered on their male peers. While playing his match, Franklin Cohen was told he had small genitals and asked if he liked bagels, a phrase his mother viewed as a reference to the family’s Jewish surname.
Dartmouth officials and students later apologized for the incident.
