The Feminists have a Chance to Help Out. Will they Take It?
The incident occurred one day prior to a scheduled speaking engagement by Dr. Janice Fiamengo. That speech was loudly disrupted by student protesters, and the convergence of events has fuelled speculation that the assault on Danielle D'Entremont was part of a calculated spin campaign against non-feminist activism.
We do not claim that the incident was fabricated, since we are not in a position to know. But fabricated or not, various feminist commenters have implied that the incident was somehow tied to the pro-male standpoint.
To date, police investigators have not reported any leads in the case, and Danielle D'Entremont has not supplied proof that the alleged e-mails actually exist.
The pro-male activist Attila Vinczer has posted a $1,000 reward for anybody who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of D'Entremont's attacker. Paul Elam of the AVfM organization has put up a matching amount, which brings the total bounty to $2000.
Feminist groups are welcome to chip in and increase the "kitty". For example, it would be small potatoes for an organization such as NOW to double or triple the amount presently posted. But so far we have not heard from any feminists, although we are confident that they will come through. They probably just haven't "gotten around to it" yet, wouldn't you say?
