Princeton Feminist Noa Wollstein Hates Men and ‘Heteronormative’ Kissing

Princeton University sophomore Noa Wollstein.

Male students at Princeton University must be warned to avoid sophomore Noa Wollstein, a feminist who hates all men.

Last month, Ms. Wollstein wrote a column in the student newspaper denouncing Princeton’s a cappella singing group the Tigertones for performing the song “Kiss the Girl” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid — an ode to heteronormative toxic masculinity:

Even when gently crooned by an animated crab, the song “Kiss The Girl,” from the Disney hit “The Little Mermaid,” is more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute. By performing the song multiple times each semester, the Tigertones elevate it to an offensive and violating ritual. . . .
Lyrics such as, “It’s possible she wants you too/There’s one way to ask her/It don’t take a word, not a single word/Go on and kiss the girl, kiss the girl,” and “she won’t say a word/Until you kiss that girl,” unambiguously encourage men to make physical advances on women without obtaining their clear consent.
The song launches a heteronormative attack on women’s right to oppose the romantic and sexual liberties taken by men, further inundating the listener with themes of toxic masculinity. In trying to motivate Eric to kiss Ariel, the crab, Sebastian, makes use of lines such as, “Looks like the boy’s too shy,” “Don’t be scared,” and “It’s such a shame, too bad/You’re gonna miss the girl.”
Such expressions imply that not using aggressive physical action to secure Ariel’s sexual submission makes Eric weak — an irrefutable scaredy-cat. Applied outside of the realm of the movie, these statements suggest that masculinity is contingent on domination of women. This attitude can catalyze violent tendencies toward, and assault against, women.

It should be obvious that Ms. Wollstein would never want to be kissed by a man — this is “aggressive physical action” inspired by “toxic masculinity” — and she succeeded in getting the Tigertones to remove the song from their repertoire. Ms. Wollstein’s anti-heterosexual rage blinded her to the context of the scene in The Little Mermaid, “that Ariel puckered up and consistently gave clear body language signals,” as Fausta Wertz writes, lamenting “the sad barren emotional lives of the young SJW generation.” But this is the raison d’être of feminism, to destroy every source of happiness in human society. It should go without saying that any male who so much as speaks to Noa Wollstein risks an accusation of “harassment,” and that any man who attempted to kiss her would be accused of sexual assault. This is why Ms. Wollstein’s parents are paying $62,750 a year (including room and board) to send her to Princeton, so that she can vent her anti-heterosexual hostility and prevent the performance of Disney songs on campus.
