The University of Vermont chapter of fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon is being suspended for passing out a survey to its members that asked questions including, ?If I could rape someone, who would it be??

The university may take further disciplinary action, and women on campus are circulating a petition to have the chapter shutdown entirely that has already received over 1,000 signatures.

The incident is the latest in a long series of rape-promoting stunts by fraternity members at American universities. Jezebel notes that ?Sigma Phi Epsilon should know the drill, since UVM?s chapter was shut down from 1993-1997 for hazing, which included making pledges tell racist jokes and describe what they?d do with a stripper whose company they enjoyed the night before.?

It's a fraternity, their stereotype on movies and TV is not a Hollywood thing

Actually it typically is a Hollywood thing. That's why greek bodies typically have a higher GPA than the rest of the school. However, there's always the one house full of dumbasses on campus. This is bad, but at least they didn't kill one of their pledges like one of the houses did when I was at school.

Im suprised the school isnt being investigated for this!? No offence but part of an education is being taught how to behave and carry yourself with dignity in the world, not acting like some deranged pervert. The fact this kind of frat is allowed is disgusting as all its doing is promoting a gender stereo type and setting back the rights movement about 100yrs in the doing so.

Disgusting, totally and utterly.

Maybe they need to re-teach the fundamental ideas of what it means to be considered an "educated gentlemen".

Guess no one told you that middle income & poor kids go to college too, and end up in fraternities. The problem is inadequate supervision by house staff - and in a lot of schools there is no responsible house staff. Same way hazing happens - and you see that down to Jr. High.

No, I'm glad it was public. Otherwise, no one wouldn't have found out about it.

Now everybody knows they are all a bunch of disgusting freaks.

I understand that jokes will sometimes come out when sitting with close friends, but this seems to be farther then that. It's the kind of attitude that actually encourages people to rape for real.
