Canadian university tried to ignore dental students’ rape jokes on Facebook

Dalhousie protestFour professors at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia have gone public with a complaint for misogynistic postings on Facebook, after the university administration failed to take action prior to students returning from the holiday break. The university dental clinic has now been closed.

One poster reportedly joked about using chloroform to render a woman unconscious. Another asked members which female students they would like to have “hate sex” with.   A third post showed a photo of a woman in a bikini with the caption: “bang until stress is relieved or unconscious (girl).”

According to the formal complaint that was filed by the faculty members, the FB post asked “who would you hate fuck” and invited students to vote between two female dental students.
