Harvard soccer team suspended over sex comments

Harvard University has suspended its men's soccer team after players made sexual comments about members of the women's team, BBC informs.

A document uncovered by Harvard's student newspaper included ratings of the attractiveness of female players as well as sexually explicit comments.

University President Drew Faust called the behaviour "appalling".

The team, currently in first place in the Ivy League, will forfeit the rest of its games this season.

In what reports indicate may be a yearly tradition, male soccer players at Harvard circulated documents with pictures of their female counterparts, rating their attractiveness from one to 10 and giving reasons for their decisions.

They also noted which sexual position they thought the women in question would prefer.

Until recently, the Harvard Crimson newspaper reports, documents from 2012 were publicly accessible through a former team's Google Group.
