French Professor Refuses to Teach Because of Hijabi Student Then Disrobes


It’s heartening to see the solidarity that the “veiled student” received from her fellow classmates.

French Professor Refuses to Teach Because of Student Wearing Hijab


Gregory Lafarge, lawyer and professor at the professional school of the Barreaux of the Appeal Court of Paris (EFB), refused to teach his courses and left the amphitheater, in protest of a student wearing a headscarf, according to Le Figaro.

“The professor approached the veiled student probably to ask her to remove her veil, but her classmates prevented him from doing so,” said Paul, one of the students in the class, to Le Figaro.

Henri Leclerc, another student who witnessed the incident, reportedly explained, “the professor reacted very badly and immediately left the amphitheater, before returning, apparently furious, and taking off his clothes, yelling ‘my religion to me is naturism.’”

After the incident, the majority of students reportedly applauded and defended their classmate. They were astonished by the behavior of their professor.

Sebastian, a student, told Le Figaro that “There have always been veiled students, but we have never seen such incidents.”

The veiled student expressed herself later on Facebook, saying that “I respect those who find my outfit offensive, but I think I have a right to be here.”

    Well, veil is a word also applied to the headdress of brides, whether the item is designed to be worn in front of the face until the ceremony is completed or not.

    Nothing a good ol’ fashioned beat down couldn’t fix. This perverted bastard should never be allowed to be teach EVER.

    How is walking around with your junk hanging out less offensive than a young woman wearing religious garb? I can guarantee you if he’d demanded a Muslim man remove his kufi he wouldn’t have responded by flashing him. This is racism with a bonus helping of misogyny.

  • Mifeng86

    What that professor did could and should be considered sexual harassment; He exposed himself specifically to that particular female student.

  • Reynardine

    Indeed, they got one.

  • Reynardine

    At least wait till you’re sixteen, Young Blood.

    In certain situations I would whole heartedly support expressing belief in naturism.

    Maybe, but it also has to do with the outdated narrative they continue to hold on to. Europeans have centuries of distinct ethno-history and shared culture which have created social consensus that is now being “challenged” by minorities and immigrants from what were, until WWII, “subjects” from their overseas empires.

  • George Carty

    Do you think that some Westerners hate Muslims primarily for being an uncomfortable reminder of the traditional moral values that they are unwilling to live by now, but nevertheless are not willing either to fully repudiate?

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    They are very bad for your feet apparently.

  • HSkol

    Why? Have you had bad experiences in heels?

  • Reynardine

    I remember when I was supposed to walk a caseworker’s beat while wearing them.

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    Don’t wear high heels.

  • Jean Markale

    Umm, no, I stopped at pumps…

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    Have you ever tried wearing high heels?

  • The greenmantle

    From the context I would say the hijab

  • Reynardine

    She is that.

  • Jean Markale

    Yet he did say some things which have merit. Mixed in with some misconceptions, probably; but I’ll take insight wherever I can get it. You’ll never get rich if you refuse to pick up the gems which lie amidst the ordinary stones.
    I never thought I’d do this, but I just upvoted Gdich’s post.

  • Jean Markale

    Wow she’s really beautiful

  • Jean Markale

    Lmao@ “baguette.”

    If I get the opportunity inshallah, I’m going to use that.
