Destinie Mogg-Barkalow, an openly gay student at Bridgewater State University, was attacked for writing an op-ed in support of gay marriage, the AP reported.

In her editorial, titled Prop 8 Generates More Hate and published in the student-run newspaper The Comment, Mogg-Barkalow called out supporters of California's gay marriage ban as intolerant.

“I would never want my rights to be forgotten just so people could walk all over me,” Mogg-Barkalow wrote. “If you believe legalizing gay marriage is unconstitutional, I think it is time you moved to another country. If you think it is wrong because of procreation, think again. Not even all straight couples have children. When it comes down to it, all I can say is leave us alone. Why are people so concerned about my soul and not their own? If same-sex couples are going to hell, at least I would be in peace and could finally stop worrying about hypocritical judgment.”

Mogg-Barkalow told police officers that she was approached by a tall man and a shorter woman with red hair while walking in a campus parking lot on Thursday. They pair asked her if she wrote the article. When she answered yes, the woman punched her in the face.

Police are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.

The school is organizing a rally for Mogg-Barkalow to take place Tuesday at 11AM in the Moakley Center.
