When no one is watching

[su_quote cite=”John Wooden”]“The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching.”[/su_quote]
[su_quote cite=”Dalhousie student mentioned in rape post”]It feels shocking to be asked to discipline my own peers. That’s not my job. It’s good that they’re asking for our input but … we don’t know all the facts. How can we be asked to make a decision based on partial information about our peers? It’s very, very hard.[/su_quote]

Once again a Halifax University has been hit with the sad realization that misogyny infects their student body and poisons the environment on campus – especially for young women.

There is no excuse for this. This is not a simple mistake. It has nothing to do with the stupidity of youth.

And it sure as hell deserves a better response than the one given. Putting the onus on female dentistry students who are facing a very challenging fourth year term is un-acceptable.

What was written on that Facebook page was not only an exposé of the way those men view women, it was a exposé of who they are.

This is the speech that should have been given by Dalhousie president Richard Florizone.
