REPORT: Turns Out #DePaulBound Isn’t About Bondage

In a new attempt to bring prospective students to Chicago’s premier Catholic University, DePaul University’s PR and social media team have started the hashtag #DePaulBound, which can be seen on all of their social media, from Facebook to Snapchat. However, to the dismay of almost the entire DePaul student body, #DePaulBound has nothing to do with the BDSM that most students love to engage in.

Our investigative team at The Black Sheep reached out to the DePaul student body for comment.

According to Henry Zipzer, also known as Daddy Kyle in his “sloppy dom” persona, #DePaulBound bellies a mistaken belief in the homogeneity of DePaul’s student body. “I understand that #DePaulBound could mean that you’re an incoming freshman looking forward to attending DPU, but for most of us here, when you say you’re ‘DePaul Bound’ it means you’re looking to be tied up and spanked like the naughty pledge you are.”

Zipzer sighed and added, “It really shows how the administration feels about the beautiful diversity of our school.”

Other DePaul kinksters seemed to feel similarly. Madam Rachel, one of the most popular dominatrixes on the Loop campus, had her own take on the controversial hashtag. “I think it’s important that DePaul’s large and varied community of kinksters have a space to call our own, whether that space is a hashtag, the secret orgy pit in the SAC basement or a community meeting place in the STU. It’s an affront to all of us the DePaul’s administration has taken ‘DePaul Bound’ and turned it into such a cheap marketing tactic.”

Of course, not everyone at DePaul feels the same way about the hashtag. Some groups seem to feel that DePaul’s expansive BDSM scene has enough of its own spaces and that their calls of appropriation regarding the marketing tactic are out of line or overzealous.

“I think that the DePaul Kinksters have enough things to call their own,” says Haley Deal, sorority member. “It’s time to give those of us who are really oppressed a chance, like DePaul’s Greek life or the poor, underfunded, not useless at all DPU administration.”

Nancy Higglebottom, Dean of DePaul’s outreach and hashtags program also had her own take on the controversy surrounding #DePaulBound. “I don’t understand what these rope bunnies and daddy doms are going on about,” she says. “Yes, being DePaul Bound can refer to being tied up by DIBs and being brutally abused by him and a rotating cast of mediocre basketball players, but it can also mean that you simply plan on going to DePaul. Let’s share the space and the hashtag!”

At press time, we reached out to DePaul’s furry community for a final word, but only received a couple of barks and yiffs from within their $2000 fur-suits. Regardless of the term’s meaning, those guys were definitely #DePaulBound.
