Dalhousie professors go public with Facebook scandal complaint

….allege several of the Facebook comments amount to threats of sexual assault and acts of sexual harassment.

The complaint urges the university to suspend students who actively participated in any of the offensive posts on the 2015 DDS Gentlemen's Club Facebook group.

….The dentistry faculty at Dalhousie came under fire after CBC News received screenshots of sexually explicit posts on the Class of DDS 2015 Gentlemen Facebook page.

….male students in the group voted on which woman they'd like to have "hate sex" with and joked about using chloroform on women.


Four of the 150 Dalhousie faculty members who signed a petition calling for an independent inquiry on December 22, 2014, have gone public with their complaints. The faculty members say the "comments amount to threats of sexual assault and acts of sexual harassment." Others are calling it a "Public Safety" issue.

What's all the fuss about? Well, 68% of final year male dental students at Dalhousie are wannabe-rapists. They described their rape fantasies on Facebook, for example, referring to "hate sex" and using chloroform on victims. CBC News published the screenshots.

But. Dalhousie President Richard Florizone is dragging his feet. The perps haven't been suspended, and the Prez won't even consider enforcing Dalhousie's "Code of Student Conduct" unless the victims come forward publicly (and make themselves targets). Despite the evidence.

The real problem? Canadian taxpayers pay over 2/3 the cost of training dentists - and support the so-called "vetting process" that keeps the white male elite in power. So Florizone's real priority is to protect the white male elite - its turf and its taxpayer funding.

Enter Anonymous. Fortunately, Anonymous will release the names of Dalhousie's wannabe-rapist dental students on Monday, January 5, 2015, if Florizone does not address their concerns. The public needs that information.

These wannabe-rapists are not the kind of men you want bending over your drugged-out kids. Trust me.

Thank God for the whistleblowing hackers. But what kind of world have we created where we still need so-called "criminals" to protect us from the untouchable blue bloods?



…and why is there such a surge in sexual violence? And gender hate? What the samhill is going on? Halifax therapists Mary and Peter Goodman say Internet porn is 'rewiring' young brains, and "blocking men's ability to be emotionally close to their partners." They say, "The problem for some men who watch large amounts of porn is, as time goes by, they need more stimulation and aggressive porn in order to get aroused" - but I think there's a lot more to the story, specifically the Erectile Dysfunction Pandemic. See loam's thread for some background: MEN: You are being chemically castrated.



Leadership of the dental profession and of Canadian dental education remains a white male bastion. The deans of all ten faculties of dentistry in Canada are men, and of the 18 directors of the Canadian Dental Association, only one is a woman. There are no people of colour on the CDA board, yet many dentists reacted angrily to a July 2013 online post in the Journal of the CDA by Dr. Ernest Lam calling for greater diversity in the leadership of the profession. One dentist argued that rather than worry about diversity, CDA leaders should limit the number of graduates to promote greater profitability for working dentists.

Like all forms of discrimination, the misogyny and callousness at Dalhousie have been carefully taught. ….

The “tone at the top” in the CDA and in dental faculties creates a sense of entitlement among dental students and encourages a lack of empathy for the many Canadians who need their care. ….relative to the 34 countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, Canada performed “poorly” in insuring equitable access to dental care.

….Canadians pay a lot for dentists to be trained. Tuition fees for dental school are shockingly expensive, but still represent less than a third of the real cost of training. Taxpayers make up the difference. It’s time that Canadian dental faculties ensure that their graduates are trained to be respectful and empathetic to each other and to all Canadians, so that dentistry can become the partner in health care that Canadians need it to be.


From MARKET WATCH:

….Big Pharma solves the world’s great erectile-dysfunction pandemic.

I am unsure as to how relavant to your thread this may or may not me but in the UK of late there have been several incidents on social media were women have been threatened by strangers who disagree with there views with rape.
I do not know if this has been going on elsewhere but it is by far an isolated incident.

On a side note I have worked for several years at a combined sports and weekend party/camping event and the past 2 years they have issued printed flyers to the men explaining that rape even if drunk is wrong and to the ladies that if they get drunk there is a reasonable chance they may be raped.

I do not know what more to say other than I do not understand what is going on right now.

I thought it was sad but true how one woman on the campus despaired that the consequences for academic dishonesty were more severe than those for discussing the rape of fellow students.

If these students had posted facebook statements about murdering fellow students or planting bombs on the campus, would the statements have been taken more seriously? So why not when rape is spoken about?

Dal isn't the only university here to have issues like this come up. There is something shockingly wrong in the minds of young people today. Universities need to have a zero tolerance policy for any type of behavior like this, as it would certainly not be tolerated in the workforce.
Here's another recent story out of Saint Mary's University.
I will caution that some members may find the video in the story disturbing. I know I did, especially while there were women chanting along...

You can google Saint Mary's to find the full story, and related articles

Thanks - and no, such incidents are not isolated. In fact, rape is becoming quite commonplace as are threats of sexual assault and violence (followed by the action).

I think a lot of men are angry and confused about their sexual dysfunctions - blaming women when it's actually an erectile dysfunction pandemic, caused by environmental contaminations.

Is it that or is it a case greater refusal to accept and keep quiet with sexual harrasment and assault and also the advent of social media and the idiocy of people to make foolish and unfounded threats in a public forum?

I really don't know I am just asking as it really as a man baffles me.

I personally can think of nothing more demasculising(spelling?) than an open threat or attack on a woman(or man come to that matter?)

'Bout time. Let's hope the investigations and "reviews" deliver expulsions.

Not sure what you mean. But fyi - the word is emasculate - and erectile dysfunction is pretty emasculating all on its own.

Just to be clear:

* The perps are NOT suspended from the faculty or classes, just from clinical activities in the now-closed dental clinic. [Gotcha. They're suspended from working in a closed clinic.]
See: Dalhousie Dental Clinic Closed Over Scandal Also see: Dalhousie dentistry faculty has postponed the opening of its clinic

* The perps' suspensions from the clinic are meant to protect the perps (!), NOT the victims. The University claims they were informed of "credible threats" to the perps' safety. [Hmmm.]

* Dalhousie delayed announcing the suspensions to protect the perps and set up counselling for them - NOT the victims. [Huh?!]

* The perps are NOT suspended from classes, but exams have been delayed for ALL dental students. [Got the picture?]

Talk about Next Level Bull#.

Now it's official - this is all about money and power, and protecting the perps, NOT the victims. [Just watched a CBC interview with Dalhousie President Florizone and the Dental Faculty Dean.]

More:

Dalhousie is committed to following a just process (which is "complex") and just incidentally, protecting the perps, NOT the victims.

And oh yeah - Dalhousie officially considers the Facebook posts to be "offensive, degrading, and unacceptable" - but at the same time, clearly fine-and-acceptable in terms of Dalhousie Policies, Codes of Conduct and Professional Standards.

….Maybe Dalhousie is following India's example. : puz :


"Rape does not exist in a vacuum, it is not an aberration. There's a matrix of social and economic violence in which rape survives. We have to also tackle moral policing, violence inside homes and systematic assaults on women's autonomy."


Or maybe Dalhousie doesn't understand the true power of social media.

Facebook is a joke and is a tool used by not only the NSA but the NWO to spread propaganda by hiding walls of people who don't tow the line.

Say anything against gays and your Facebook profile almost becomes hidden from the world.

Speaking as a man, no I do not think that is it, at least for most guys under 40-50, definitely not in that age range, or at least I would be extremely surprised.

Have you seen any porn lately? When I was in university, in the late 80's, it was difficult to find anything even showing straight intercourse. Now there is so much violent porn in addition to regular porn, I think the violent themed porn is in the majority. Women are portrayed as objects to be abused. Sad but true.

Have you ever listened to the lyrics of the one Lady Gaga song? You can hear the words "f##k her face", even though they may not be explicit in the lyrics, that's what it sounds like she is saying. I'm shocked that got past the censors, not that I believe in censorship, except in the cases which are hate speech or incite violence, which I believe this Lady Gaga song falls under.

The stats show that 50% of men over 40 years of age have some degree of erectile dysfunction - and this does not include all the different kinds of sexual dysfunction. Additionally, a growing percentage of younger men also have erectile dysfunction. Equally disturbing, more and more human male infants are being born with very small penises.

Men get really angry when their manhood is in question - and tend to rage out-of-control when they're forced to question their own manhood. This anger and rage explains a lot about what's happening in society.

However, I don't think much in this world can be explained by the "single-cause=single-effect" hypothesis. Truth is usually much more complicated - system dynamics is more fruitful for investigating the interplay and effects of different factors.

I agree, the majority of porn has become focused on violence. My question is, "Why? Why is porn getting more and more violent?" ....I think the porn industry has grown to serve the growing number of sexually dysfunctional men who are looking for ever-more and different stimulation because the plumbing just doesn't work the way it should. And men are programmed to think it's all about the stimulation. Unfortunately, healthy men are getting caught up in the trend too.
