SigEp Rape Survey

Posted on 01 February 2012

“If you could rape someone, who would it be?” If that’s not enough of an incentive to read this story, I don’t know what is. University of Vermont SigEp was suspended for an offensive survey. Shocker? Not really. Check out the article after the jump.

Let’s let the source explain:

A university fraternity has been suspended after allegedly giving a quiz to its members that asked: ‘If I could rape someone, who would it be?’ The University of Vermont is investigating the source of the survey, who saw it and how it was used by Burlington brotherhood Sigma Phi Epsilon.

The survey begins with basic questions about the student’s name, subject studied and their favourite memories. It then asks ‘Where in public would I want to have sex?’, ‘Who’s my favourite artist?’ and ‘If I could rape someone, who would it be?’SigEp Vermont

‘The fraternity has instructed the chapter to cease all operations, pending further investigation,’ a spokesman at the fraternity’s headquarters said. ‘Any behaviour that demeans women is not tolerated by the fraternity,’ the national Sigma Phi Epsilon spokesman – in Richmond, Virginia – added.

Almost 20 years ago the same fraternity (house pictured) was criticised over sexual questions, after it asked students what they would do with a stripper. Campus police are now trying to establish if criminal charges could be pressed over the incident, reported the Burlington Free Press.

Just another perfect example of #16 The Importance of Secrecy. By no means are we condoning rape, or such a question. Yet, it’s obvious that such a brotherhood tradition was best kept internal. The real question is whether or not the survery would have ruffled so many feathers if it asked every question other than the rape one. Either way, it is what it is. #33 Pledgeship Is A Party, but not to the extent of illegal demonization of women. We all know that sorority girls will be the drunkest partiers of all, but if you’re a true frat-star, you’ll find a way to poud-town without force. That’s common sense 101.

 

Lesson learned? We’ll see how it all turns out. Next time, don’t ask the rape question. On another note, what would you do with a stripper? I can ask that question, right?

It’s not hazing. It’s brotherhood.

    So really, what would you do to a stripper? On another note, sound off if you have any surveys, superlatives or the like in your chapter…

    I go here, and SPE had some awesome guys. This story has a lot of incorrect facts in it – a pledge wrote the survey and accidentally sent it to a T.A. The “feminazis” at this school caught on and got everyone in trouble for a gay (actually) pledge saying something terrible.
