Kingston, Ontario, Canada
I herewith revoke my word not to record the Jaclyn Friedman What’s Feminism Got To Do With It public event. Had security not violated my Charter Rights I would never have had to take the steps I did to preserve those rights. Section 183 and 184 of the CCC, Criminal Code of Canada, gives me every right to tape record.
On April 7, 2014, a group of five men and one woman were denied access to a public feminist event at Queen’s University for absolutely no reason at all. Security trampled on Charter rights of these Canadians. Suzy Enola, Jim Byset, Dan Perrins and Attila Vinczer were eventually allowed to enter the auditorium after tremendous resistance to let us attend a public feminist event. What were they hiding from us?
Adele Mercier unexpectedly withdrew from the event as one of the speakers and panel members. She was subjected to harsh criticism regarding her comments that, yes men are raped but only by men and female prison guards who have sex with under age incarcerated boys is ok because they (under age incarcerated boys) are asking for it (sex).
At the last moment, female organizers frantically put up notices that no video or audio recording would be allowed. Steve Brule, a documentarian and his assistant were denied access to the auditorium under any circumstances. Queen’s security told us they were acting under the direction of the feminist organizers.
I was able to get access to a digital recording of the event, which I feel is very important to share with the public. The public has a right to know what type of damaging and dangerous rhetoric is being spoken to highly impressionable young adult minds. For example, Jaclyn Friedman in her slide show failed to show a picture of a woman, to illustrate that women can and do rape men and women. Friedman thought it was only necessary to depict a young man as the image of a what a rapist is.
Have a listen, and determine for yourself if this feminist event is fair, balanced and just with the propaganda it propagates. Moreover, is this the kind of bigoted lecture that Queen’s University should permit on campus? One must wonder if they even are aware how deeply bigoted this event was.
Many thanks to Jim Byset and Dan Perrins for not resting until Jaclyn Friedman, the panel, and the audience heard the importance of including men and boys as victims of crime, not just women.
My thanks to the women who helped make this recording possible. I couldn’t have done it without you.
