Police are investigating after a man allegedly beat up a Queen’s University student who says she received threats for her support of feminist activities on campus.
Police say they haven’t dismissed the possibility the attack was a hate crime.
Danielle d’Entremont said the attack occurred late Wednesday night as she was leaving her home. In a Facebook post, she said the suspect punched her in the face repeatedly, breaking one of her teeth.
Ok but there could be some other explanation. Maybe the guy was just in a bad mood and she was the first person he saw. That can happen.
Police haven’t said whether the fourth-year student’s campus politics are linked to the attack, but she wrote that her attacker was a man and knew her name.
Well if he knew her name, that takes care of the first person he saw theory. But hey, she could totally be lying. Maybe she punched her own self in the face.
The Queen’s Journal reported d’Entremont was “actively involved in opposition” to an event hosted by the Men’s Issues Awareness Society (MIAS) Thursday night.
The student-run club organized a talk by Janice Fiamengo, an English professor at the University of Ottawa and a former-feminist-turned-men’s-rights activist.
There was opposition; there was a motion to de-ratify the Men’s Issues Awareness Society; the motion was dismissed.
On Thursday, MIAS president Mohammed Albaghdadi wrote on the event page: “We would like to state that the MIAS condemns the recent attack on a Queen’s student, and violence in general. There have been various comments associating MIAS with this attack. Please know that these claims are unfounded and untrue. Our sincerest thoughts go out to the student who was attacked.”
How does he know that? How can he know that? I don’t know that the claims are true; how can he know that they are untrue?
