A university in Boston is distancing itself from a feminist professor who wrote a controversial column earlier this month that some might call “hate speech”.
In an opinion piece for the Washington Post, Suzanna Danuta Walters, a professor of sociology and women, gender and sexuality studies program director at Northeastern University, said that women have the right to “hate men.”
“You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy,” she wrote.
The university in Boston immediately taken away from the elaborated, saying: “hate has no place” at the university.
“The university has more than 1,000 faculty members, from which the views across the entire political spectrum,” university spokesperson Shannon Nargi told Fox News in a statement. “Consistent with our unwavering commitment to academic freedom, the opinions of an individual professor do not reflect the views of the university or its leadership. The northeast is committed to promoting an environment in which controversial ideas can be discussed, debated, and challenged.”

Walters wrote that men should just abdicate their power and responsibility to women
Northeastern University is located in Boston.
“As men,” the feminist activist writes, “If you would like us to not hate you…pledge to vote for feminist women only. Not for the office. Have no burden of anything. Step away from the power.”
Walters even before President Trump, her edge had been crossed, and urges feminists, instead of taking the high road, “maybe it is time for us to go all Thelma and Louise and Foxy Brown on their collective ass.”
In a comment on Walters’ column, Conor Friedersdorf wrote in The Atlantic that her argument is a “mutilation” of feminism, but he is of the opinion that her “most bigoted ideological commitments do not affect how she treats her students.”
“Group to hate,” Friedersdorf writes, “tend to be those that harbour the less able to see clearly, it is less likely to recognize nuance, and are less able to improve the world, even if their wrongheaded ideas risk that others in destructive errors.”

This was not the first time Walters has been attacked with a group of people on the basis of their identity.
The College Fix pointed out that, while Walters requirements of the people choose women for public office, she told the campus newspaper would not endorse a Republican woman.
“Having a Carly Fiorina or, heaven forbid, Sarah Palin in the White House would have all women back of course, because their agenda’s are firmly and unequivocally anti-feminist,” she said.
