Feminist prof doubles-down on call to 'hate men'

Article here. Excerpt:

'The professor who recently claimed that women “have every right” to “hate” men has defended her remarks by claiming that “it makes obvious sense for women to have rage.”

The controversy began on June 8, when Northeastern University Women’s Studies Professor Suzanna Danuta Walters penned an op-ed in The Washington Post titled “Why Can’t We Hate Men?” in which she outlines various justifications for hating men who do not subordinate themselves to feminist concerns.
“So, in this moment, here in the land of legislatively legitimated toxic masculinity, is it really so illogical to hate men?” Walters writes, going on to blame men en masse for a litany of issues including structural inequality and the lack of women in office. 
“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,” she writes, appearing invoke a phrase popularized by Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of espionage in 2013.'
Although Walters later claimed that she doesn’t hate men, her June 8 essay concludes by by noting that “We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy.” 

After the article was published, Walters granted an interview with the sympathetic Chronicle of Higher Education, during which she told reporter Alexander Kafka that she doesn’t “hate men in some generic way.” 

“My point here was to say it makes obvious sense for women to have rage, legitimate rage, against a group of people that has systematically abused them,” she wrote, adding that she could likewise ask “why can’t we hate white people?” 

Neutrality puts men on the side of the oppressor, she added.'
