Men Interested in Being AKA’s File Discrimination Lawsuit?

  • Have you ever heard of MIAKA? That acronym stands for Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA). Reportedly, they are homosexual men who want the right to pledge and join the ranks of the sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha. But apparently, there’s a problem with that idea…they’re men.

    No matter how sensitive to women’s issues or in touch with their feminine side, MIAKA does not fit the key qualification that it takes to be a part of the non-profit, community centered, women’s service organization.  The AKAs were established in 1908 on the campus of Howard University and they, in 104 years, have yet to induct a man into their sorority. But now it has been rumored that a lawsuit is pending that charges AKA with discrimination and homophobia because they won’t allow this group of gay men to be members.

    I hate to poke holes in their complaint before it officially gets off the ground, but there are plenty of AKAs that are lesbians. So, if this is all true, they may not want to use the homophobic argument. According to Rolling Out Magazine, there isn’t any real proof that there will be a lawsuit other than a story that popped up on KollegeKidd.com over the weekend.  The details of the suit have not been documented.

    But, why do people try to use the Constitution to bully organizations, pageants, proms and other gender-based competitions into allowing the opposite sex a chance to get inside?  Why don’t they establish their own institutions that celebrate the same components they are enamored with in the organizations they would like to join?

    It seems strange that MIAKA hasn’t thought of that as reports of their group have been “unofficially” founded on the campuses of Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M University, according to the Huffington Post.The Divine 9–as the African American greek organizations are affectionately called that comprise the National Pan-Hellenic Council–would probably show great respect for their organization if they contributed to building the Council in the traditions of community service.

    1. Why get worked up about guys pushing the envelope. They know they don’t have any legs yet folks are losing their minds over this.

    2. So, do we allow homosexual men to use the ladie’s restroom??? Men, do you want a grown man going into the bathroom with your daughters..even if he is “HOMOSEXUAL”???? In my home town, a homosexual teen ran for prom queen…the students got a kick out of it and he won. The “STRAIGHT” prom king was ridiculed & ostrisized because he refused to participate in the dance and picture taking with this gay guy that won prom queen. WOW!!!! I ask again…..When and Where does it end? Will we be a society of ANYTHING GOES? Whatever the gays want is all right & tight and anyone that doesn’t celebrate it gets called a bigot???

    3. Where does it end?? Why do the homosexuals insist on bullying their way into gender based organizations? I really wish that they would understand that EVERYONE does not NEED to CELEBRATE their way of life!!!!! I would never sanction the disrespecting of any homosexual but I also will NEVER accept their way of life. I whole-heartedly, emphatically DISAGREE with their life style CHOICE. I am really tired of the HOMOSEXUALS forcing their agenda and their way of life on all of society.
      This group of homosexual men are IN FACT MEN!!!!! THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO JOIN A WOMEN’S ORGANIZATION. I DON’T CARE IF IN THEIR TWISTED MINDS THEY HAVE DECIDED THAT THEY IDENTIFY MORE WITH REAL WOMEN…..THEY ARE NOT WOMEN!!!!
      WHEN and WHERE does it end? How far will we allow them to take this?

    4. How ridiculous is this. People feel that they’re entitled to do whatever they want to do, no matter how foolish it makes them seem. Laughable. This makes as much sense as an African American wanting to join a Polish bowling league

    5. This is a total mockery of our real struggle for real civil rights.This is laughable
      Because these so called educated students can’t comprehend what our fathers,mothers,brothers and sisters really fought for,equal treatment under the law.This is like a lawsuit to become female..Students even if you won in the eyes of your creator you were born male..Run and tell that..

    6. As much as I love my DST I will never disrespect the 22 women who worked ever so hard to start this organization by: 1. Trying to be them, and 2, suing them because I can’t be them. If it is that serious that you be in an organization be creative, be a founder of your own and leave AKA, DST, and all Sorors for the ladies.

    7. WOW, how my comment was mis-read. It was Obama who said “same sex marriages is a sign of evolution.” I am not blaiming him for these men’s issues. All I was saying is that maybe this is what he was meaning when he made that statement. My goodness, I guess we can not say anything, no matter what it is with his name associated with it.

    8. HELL YEEEZZZZ!!!

      FINALLY IT HAPPENED – JUST BOUGHT A NEW RIDE – A CAM A RO CONVERTIBLE.GOT APPROVED FOR 26 LARGE. BEEN 5 YRS SINCE IVE GOTTEN SHYT APPROVED, BUT NOW ALL MY CREDIT ISHH IS GONE. ALL OF IT.

      MY HOMEBOY WAS IN THE GUTTA TOO, AND HE CLEANER THAN ME NOW-gettin a condo!!

      Hit em up – THEY WILL HELP U!!

    9. These men can’t possibly think there’s a benefit to getting in, in the first place. How does it benefit a man to have on his resume that he was the first male member of a sorority, and so what is the point in trying to get in? Or maybe they never expected to get in, and the point was to be able to sue? Hmmm.
