Have you noticed that many colleges and universities rediscover their belief in free speech every time a left wing professor says something outrageous?

The Washington Examiner reports:

Northeastern committed to protecting ‘controversial ideas’ after professor asks, ‘Why can’t we hate men?’

After a professor took to the op-ed pages of the Washington Post to advocate for hatred of men, Northeastern University in Massachusetts both defended her ability to debate “controversial ideas,” but at the same time distanced itself from her views.

In her June 8 op-ed titled, “Why can’t we hate men?” Suzanna Walters argued that it is logical to hate men, and that women who say they don’t hate men are really “would-be feminists.”

“[I]n this moment, here in the land of legislatively legitimated toxic masculinity, is it really so illogical to hate men?” she wrote.

Walters did not respond to requests for comment by The College Fix, nor did several faculty members and officials, including Title IX coordinator Mark Jannoni as well as the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies department. Campus spokeswoman Shannon Nargi, however, emailed the publication a statement.

“Northeastern University steadfastly supports a safe and inclusive learning and working environment in which hate has no place,” the statement reads.
