Bridgewater State student says she was punched over pro-gay marriage piece

Police at Bridgewater State University are looking for a woman who allegedly punched a student journalist in the face for her pro-gay marriage editorial.

Meanwhile, the school is rallying behind the writer, Destinie Mogg-Barkalow, and is planning a rally on campus on Tuesday.

Mogg-Barkalow has been writing for the student newspaper, The Comment, since September. She penned a piece for this week’s edition titled “Prop 8 generates more hate,” in which she called out supporters of a ban on gay marriage in California as intolerant and bigoted. On Feb. 8, a federal appeals court declared the ban unconstitutional, saying it was a violation of the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples.

Mogg-Barkalow told police that she was walking in a campus parking lot shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday when she was approached by a tall man and a shorter woman with red hair who appeared to be fellow students.

The two asked Mogg-Barkalow, who was wearing a Comment sweatshirt at the time, if she wrote for the newspaper and if she wrote the pro-gay marriage editorial, campus police said. When she said yes, the woman punched her in the face, leaving a bruise, university spokesman Bryan Baldwin said.

Mogg-Barkalow, who is a lesbian, wrote in the editorial: “I know how to run my life and I can love whomever I want.”

Good for you. Don’t expect us to destroy ancient traditions because of it.

An attention whore who was feeling under-appreciated.

We made her do it by ignoring her.

“The assault kinda proved her point.”

If she is telling the truth about being assaulted-—and most of these recent types of “assaults” turn out to be self-inflicted. And if she did not bring the assault upon herself by intolerably obnoxious behavior on her part, she is still wrong because she uses the plural, supporters, when sh2 was struck by one individual.

I find it hard to believe that there were only 3 people on the grounds of the State School at the time. No one else saw the alleged “assault”. Leo’s should first look at the doorknob in her dorm room for dna evidence.

Yeah, it’s always fun when these so-called “victims” get hit with a False Reports charge.

Grab the popcorn.

The alleged assault, good sir. Like a lot of posters, I sense a perfect circle of faked “evidence” that supports the assumption.

As gays pretend and hope that their “struggle” is an echo of the Civil Rights era, so too, inevitably, will be their adoption of the same recent campaign of self-generated hoaxes that “support” their claims.

So true, so ironically true.

If you’ve ever seen someone use those vibrators, it’s an amazing thing. You dip it into the wet concrete, it vibrates at just the right frequency where the concrete basically turns into water and flows everywhere. Amazing tool.

The assault only proves that when evil becomes too much to tolerate, then it won’t be tolerated.

I'm sure this is a gross exaggeration (lie), as the homos are wont to engage in. How many times do they claim that we want to kill them?

Drama queens, in every way.

Mogg-Barkalow has already backtracked and said she does not think she was 'attacked' because she was gay but because of what she wrote.

Her two moms will be so relieved.
