In fact, an undercurrent of conservative traditionalism exists on the Wellesley campus when it comes to sex, dating, relationships, and even marriage.It has achieved semi-mythical status among the Boston frat crowd, with the “creative black tie” dress code interpreted to mean, “dress as scantily as possible.” At the 2005 Dyke Ball, 11 students were hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.The media used these hospitalizations as an excuse to publish scores of eroticized, disapproving reports of Wellesley life.The article’s description of the Dyke Ball is snarkily crafted to tap into male carnal lust, best exemplified by the Animal House scene in which John Belushi secretly observes a naked, sorority pillow fight.In the article’s words: “Women arrive nearly topless, or wearing only Saran Wrap or body paint (which inevitably sweats off by the end of the night).” Some journalists have even extended their unfair characterization of Wellesley as a weapon to level ad hominem broadsides at alumnus Hillary Clinton.In the 2005 book “The Truth About Hillary,” author Edward Klein tries to damage Clinton politically by pointing to Hillary’s time at Wellesley, the bastion of radical feminism and lesbianism, as evidence of her lesbianism.
