"Who would you like to rape?" Frat Brother


The University of Vermont chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon has been suspended after the fraternity concluded a survey by asking members, "Who would you like to rape?"

The national head of the fraternity told the Burlington Free Press this afternoon [Dec. 14, 2011] there may be two other objectionable questions on the survey. But he said he would not comment until he had more information.

"We will not tolerate this behavior," said Brian Warren, who has been executive director of the national organization since 2009. "This is not a theme throughout the country. This is very unique in my two years" (sic).

He said he was "shocked" by the questionnaire's query, "If you could rape someone, who would it be?" adding it was not typical of the fraternity's 117 chapters.

(The national's website describes Sigma Phi Epsilon, founded in 1901 in Richmond, Va., as "one of the largest college fraternities with over 15,000 undergraduates at 241 chapters.") More
