“From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”
Wouldn’t a professor come under major fire for making a statement like this about homosexuality?

California prof: Heterosexuality is ‘tragic’
A professor at the University of California-Riverside called heterosexuality “tragic” and stated that men are often pulled into toxic masculinity because of it.
University of California-Riverside Gender and Sexuality Studies Professor Jane Ward was recently featured in an Insider article titled, “Why heterosexual relationships are so bad for us, according to a sex researcher” in which she told the outlet that heterosexuality “tragic.”
Ward has also authored a book called The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.
“It really looks like straight men and women don’t like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny,” or woman-hating behavior, Ward told Insider. “From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”
The article cites an uptick in divorces and relationship problems among straight couples since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it,” said Ward.
The article goes on to list Ward’s reasons for being outspoken against heterosexuality, which are also found in her book.
One individual stated in Ward’s book that she finds it “depressing” that her friends “put up with” this from men.
“I find it depressing to see what my straight female friends put up with regarding treatment from men. I really sympathize with these women, but at the same time it makes me feel alienated from them,” she says in Ward’s book.
