    Can someone explain this to me?

    I can understand why fraternization is such a big deal.
    Yet it seems that it is never enforced like it should be.

    But when someone gets frocked, promoted, becomes a shellback, etc.
    Tacking and other initiations that are practically traditions, are enforced so much.

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    The big deal about hazing is, at some point it no longer becomes about tradition, and is just a bunch of people who hurt other people for the sole purpose of causing them pain and humiliation, and start doing things that have nothing to do with initiation, but now extremely dangerous for those individuals. Those people fucked up the way everyone views the traditions and they have now become banned.

    The enforcement on fraternization tends to change from command to command, some bases strictly prohibit it, while others simply don't care unless someone complains that a person is getting unfair treatment.
