Delta Gamma officials don't know who wrote the now-viral e-mail proposing an all-straight "sorority" at Smith College in Northampton, Mass., but they say it's certainly not happening, according to USA TODAY.



The paper reports the unidentified author invited her classmates to help her create an "exclusive" chapter of Delta Gamma for "straight girls" with planned activities such as "sorority mixers with Amherst men, weekly dinner dates, weekly photoshoots where we would dress up nice [and] baking nights."

The self-identifying heterosexual student wrote in the e-mail that she felt "marginalized" at the women's college of 2,600 and that the straight-only sorority could be a "really great way to socialize with people we identify more with at Smith." The e-mail quickly went viral, making the rounds on Buzzfeed, Tumblr and Slate, among others, USA TODAY reports.
