(Newser) – A University of Vermont fraternity has been suspended for distributing a survey asking members whom they would most like to rape. A student passed on the questionnaire to administrators, who immediately suspended the frat and launched an investigation, reports ABC News. "This is very appalling to us, shocking and disconcerting," said a spokesman for the Burlington school. The national organization of the frat, Sigma Phi Epsilon, asked the university to shut down the chapter. "Any behavior that demeans women is not tolerated by the fraternity," the organization said in a statement. There was no immediate response from the frat.
