We recently found out that a student group from a New York area law school is holding a Man Auction this Friday. We hear that this event has gone off without a hitch in the past, but this year, the group has changed the name of the event to the “Cake Sale.” Maybe they got in trouble with the administration, but who can resist a beefcake sale?
Our question is: what kind of a law school allows one of its student organizations to hold an annual Man Auction? An awesome one!
Though it appears some of our readers disagree with that characterization….
The law school in question is New York Law School, and the school’s Italian Law Student Association has successfully auctioned off its sexiest cannolis for the past three years. One of our tipsters, however, is not a fan, and has a message for the event organizers à la “va fungul”:
New York Law School is allowing it’s boys-club Italian Law Students Association to hold yet another “Man Auction.” Except this time in it’s 4th annual event, they are calling it a “Cake Auction” to thinly veil the sale of humans as the sale of baked goods. As a student at this school, I personally can’t believe I attend an institution where this passes as a condoned, “charitable” event. It’s really just an excuse for half naked men to have drunk and desperate women bid on them to boost their own ego’s. The event is this Friday, November 11 and I’m shocked that nobody has stopped it.
As they say on Jersey Shore, guido problems! Some more details of the allegedly offensive event can be found here:
Here at Above the Law, we appreciate it when law students can poke a little bit of fun at themselves, especially in the name of charity. So ILSA is selling its finest specimens for a charitable cause. (And no, NYLS, being sold at auction does not count as being employed upon graduation.) So what? Even Pauly D auctioned himself off to raise money for St. Jude’s.
You need to get laid, girlfriend. In fact, it seems like ILSA is giving you a great opportunity to go out and do just that. Will you be attending this year’s auction?
I personally am embarrassed. As if Italians in New York did not have enough of a bad name, we are constantly embarrassed by the only club at NYLS that should represent our good qualities, our heritage, our culture. Perhaps next year the event will be stopped if attention is brought to it. I wonder… would there ever be a “Female Auction?” My guess is that there probably would not.
We’ll take that as a “no.”
But to answer your question, the NYLS Italian stallions aren’t the only ones who are putting their own on the auction block. As it turns out, they’ve got another local competitor. Maybe you’re in the market for some bellissima babes instead?
For next year’s event, we propose that NYLS and Brooklyn Law team up for the ultimate guido and guidette gala. And don’t think that we’re going to fuhgeddaboudit.
Will you be attending the NYLS Man Auction? You should — you’ll probably have a better chance of scoring a law school hottie there than you would at the library.
