James Fulford writes: The mistake—and it is a mistake—was the Daily Mail's, and that's why the note was headed "Inaccuracy alert".
Amazingly, Tri-Delt and Zeta Tau Alpha both identify themselves on their websites as women's "fraternities", no doubt part of the modern trend that allows amazingly feminine young actresses to refer to themselves as "actors." However, that doesn't excuse the Daily Mail. A famous riddle attributed to Abraham Lincoln is
"How many legs does a dog have, If you call a tail a leg?"
"Four, because calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg."
Since both organizations remain all-female, they should be called sororities, whether they like it or not.
