UPDATE: a Waterloo student writes to say:
This thing so reeks of a fake “hate crime” publicity stunt to generate “awareness” (read funding) for the womyn’s groups on campus.
Seriously, Marie Curie?
Parasites and cannibals still dining out on the Montreal Massacre. And cops should be ashamed for taking this seriously:
The image of Marie Curie included a message that read “”THE TRUTH. The brightest Woman this Earth ever created was Marie Curie, The mother of the Nuclear Bomb. You tell me if the plan of Women leading Men is still a good idea.”
The criminal acts are a cause for concern for a number of campus groups, especially those representing women.
Sukriti Nagpal is a volunteer at the UW Women’s Centre. She says they kept the doors at the centre closed Friday “mainly for the safety, because of the posters, then the email, and then the Facebook thing that showed up. It’s kind of like, almost scary.”
Some have gone so far as to say the anti-feminist sentiment is almost as scary as what led to the deadly Montreal Massacre at the Ecole Polytechnique in 1989.
Begin says “It’s the same ideology underlying the Montreal Massacre as underlying these posters, and the Facebook and email that women shouldn’t be leaders, women shouldn’t be at university.”
Cathleen DiFruscio is also a volunteer at the Women’s Centre, she says “The events of the Montreal Massacre sort of escalated in a similar way. And again, these things don’t come out of nowhere. So it’s a fair concern to say that things could escalate.”
Campus police say they are doing their best to track down the person or people responsible.
Anderson says “We are using forensics to see if we can identify who is hanging them up that way.”
