BOSTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The head of the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern University said about men in an op-ed Friday, "We have every right to hate you."

Suzanna Danuta Walters, a sociology professor and editor-in-chief of Signs, which describes itself as an "international journal in women's studies," wrote in The Washington Post in a piece titled "Why Can't We Hate Men?" that men should step down from all positions of leadership and deserve to be hated.

So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don't run for office. Don't be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won't be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro said about the piece, "Suffice it to say that if you named that piece, 'why can't we hate the blacks?' people might be like, 'that's horrible.'"

Shapiro went on to say in response to Walters' "we have every right to hate you" remark, "Well I have every right to hate intersectional feminists like this who are vile and make the society worse. Amazing the Washington Post would print this garbage."

Walters' Twitter feed is peppered with attacks on Trump and retweets from the so-called Women's March, including a tweet sent out in September 2017 that read in part, "The dick-off between Trump and Kim Jong Un may well bring us to nuclear armageddon."

Walters wrote a book in 2014 titled The Tolerance Trap: How God, Genes, and Good Intentions are Sabotaging Gay Equality. In a talk promoting the book, Walters said, "Isn't it possible that kids raised in households in which gender binarism is not the default ground, in fact imagine sexuality and gender in broader, more inclusive, more world transforming ways."

The American College of Pediatricians has put out a statement that said in plain words, "Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse."

Walters' column is far from the first outburst by a university professor to reveal some of the beliefs of liberals in positions of academia. In April 2017, Church Militant reported on an op-ed by infanticide promoter Peter Singer in The New York Times in which he defended Rutgers professor Anna Stubblefield, convicted of sexually molesting a 30-year-old man with severe cerebral palsy and no ability to speak.

Stubblefield had publicly argued that cognitive disability is socially constructed — academic jargon meaning illusory, not objectively real and consisting only in fluid societal beliefs. She uses this argument to come to the conclusion that a severely incapacitated person without the ability to speak is capable of consenting to sex.

Singer and his colleague Jeff McMahan, professor of moral philosophy at Oxford, argued in their op-ed that the victim was capable of consenting to sex through "facilitated communication," where a facilitating party holds a disabled person's arms and "helps" the disabled person type on a keyboard.
