Harvard Feminist @Nian_Hu Hates Men, Who ‘Will Always Be Oppressors’

Posted on | April 20, 2017 | 1 Comment

Harvard feminist Nian Hu supported Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Harvard Crimson columnist Nian Hu expressed her all-inclusive hatred of men in a column last month denouncing so-called “male feminists”:

“What these male feminists fail to realize is that,
as men, they will always be oppressors. . . .
Men, as a class, are culpable for misogyny,
and male allies are no different . . .
Feminism does not need men. . . .
Feminism is not supposed to be palatable
to men; it is supposed to be threatening.”

Merely being born male makes you an oppressor and “culpable for misogyny,” and Ms. Hu declares feminism is “supposed to be threatening” to all men, even those “male allies” who claim to support equality.

Some regular readers may remember Ms. Hu, who first called attention to herself with a 2015 column in which she declared: “I am a feminist. I believe in the equality of the sexes.” She explained that “feminism means freedom,” including “freedom to have as many sexual partners as I want without being looked down on.” As I said at the time, her assertion that no one is permitted to disapprove of promiscuity amounted to a claim that other people do not have a right to their own opinions.

Ms. Hu was just a freshman at the time, and seemed startled that anyone could disagree with her view of what feminist “freedom” means. Has she had “as many sexual partners as I want” since then? Evidence suggests the answer is “yes,” if her desired number of partners is zero.

In February 2016, for example, Ms. Hu published a column denouncing “Yellow Fever,” i.e., white men who find Asian women attractive. The apparent point of that column was to make clear that under no circumstance would Ms. Hu ever be interested in dating a white man.

A couple of weeks later, Ms. Hu unleashed a tirade in which she accused men of feeling “entitlement over women’s bodies,” an attitude she blamed for “brutal acts of violence,” concluding: “No woman owes a man anything — least of all her body.” In a column last September, Ms. Hu declared that men “view women as inferior, perceive sex as an act of conquest, and see violence as a way to establish dominance over others.” She demanded that “we must dismantle this toxic construct of masculinity” because “the patriarchy causes harm to everyone.” Yes, everyone, including girls whose parents pay $63,025 a year to send them to Harvard University.

 

Ms. Hu’s hatred of men is implacable and limitless, as she made clear in her denunciation of “male feminists,” whom she accused of “perpetuating the subordination of women” because “they continue to benefit from a system that establishes male dominance at the expense of women.” This is what she is learning at Harvard where she is pursuing a degree in Government and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. You might think that men at Harvard would be enlightened, but according to Ms. Hu, every man on the Cambridge campus is a misogynist oppressor:

Men from Harvard would sit down and argue with me about my articles, claiming that I was going too far and that “not all men” acted that way. I even heard through the grapevine that an all-male final club blacklisted me for my apparently “controversial” beliefs. . . .
It’s scary to be a feminist.
But, at the end of the day, it’s scary to even exist as a woman in this world. I am already afraid. I already live in fear when it’s late at night and a man is walking behind me closely, or when a car full of men drives by and they jeer at me and follow me down the street. Even when I am silent, I am afraid. Silence will not buy me safety.

Yes, “it’s scary even to exist as a women” at Harvard, where Nian Hu can’t go anywhere without a car full of men jeering at her as they follow her down the street. Why, some men even dare to argue with her!

This is elite education in 2017: Parents pay $63,025 a year to send their girls to Harvard University, where the faculty teach them to hate the boys whose parents pay $63,025 a year to send them to Harvard. It kind of makes me nostalgic for the good old days, when people hated each other without having to pay Ivy League professors to teach them how.
