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 weeks 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.

There is apparently some resistance remaining.
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.
What a precious name that is.
I smell BS. I’m willing to bet that this is another hoax perpetrated by the “victim”....
I know how to run my life and I can love whomever I want”
Yep. Dead or alive.
What odds are ou8t that Barkablow slugged herself?
I agree with you. The old assault cry of an attention seeking leftist progressive.
I’d say that’s a pretty good bet!
“Bridgeton police sketch artists have released the following physical description and advise that the suspect be approached with caution.”
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 kinda proved her point.”
The assault only proves that when evil becomes too much to tolerate, then it won’t be tolerated.
Another one of those hate-crimes with no witnesses, eh?
Sounds like a Morton Downey Jr. vs. the Skinheads deal.
Give it time....
in a few days we will read that it was “Staged” and Fake.
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.
Yes, one is a mental institution and the other is a hospital.
