Gender Studies Professor -- a "Beyonce Professor," Xhe Calls Xherself -- Fired After Tweeting That Someone Should Just Shoot Trump, Then Goes on Twitter to Whine About It

"Beyonce Professor."

What will Montclair College do without this one-man Algonquin Round Table?

As a thought experiment, I'd like you to imagine what you think a Gender Studies male (sorta) professor at a third tier school might look like. He's white. I figure I have to give you that because it will help you imagine the archetype.

Okay, do you have a picture in your head? Flesh it out: What do his arms look like? Does he wear any kind of hat? What's his facial hair sitch?

Clothes: First thing that pops into your head.

Does he wear a necklace, and if so, what (general) kind? Like, a crucifix, a shark-tooth necklace, or some kind of dangly Wicca pendant?

Okay, now check xhim out and see how good you are at Cultural Stereotype Remote Viewing.

That's his own page, so that's how he wishes to present himself to the public.

He created a course (ahem) called "Politicizing Beyonce." Here, let xhim explain xhis qualifications to zyou:

Meet Kevin Allred: a writer, speaker, and educator with a passion for the politics of pop culture. He believes knowledge should be accessible to everyone--not just gatekeepers of the Ivory Tower--and that education should always also be fun.

Education should always be fun.

You know the weird thing about education or sports training or musical training? It's often very hard and frustrating. Being challenged is ego-deflating and frustrating. Failing is difficult.

These things are not fun.

But the Beyonce Professor says that education -- or "education" -- should always be fun.

In other words, it should always be easy and trivial. Like Minesweeper.


Kevin's mission is to facilitate conversations around the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and class through pop culture analysis and storytelling; conversations that confront, question, and attempt to undo mainstream Amerika's racist and heterosexist status quo.

Nice. Pungently cliched.

He aims to use various privileges afforded him via his own identity to celebrate and center black feminist writing and cultural production in order to show diverse audiences why seeing the world through an intersectional feminist lens is essential for all.

Born and raised in Logan, UT, Kevin holds a B.S and M.A. in American Studies and M.Phil in Women's and Gender Studies. He has worked as a call-center operator, fast-food cook, touring singer/songwriter, librarian, writing tutor, student organizer, nonprofit grant-writer, office assistant, and college professor, among other things. In 2010, he created a Politicizing Beyonce curriculum for college students that received world-wide media attention. Since then, he's taught the curriculum in University classrooms and traveled the world with speaking events -- recognized by Beyonce herself and her team. He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY with his boyfriend.

He lives in Brooklyn? With his boyfriend? I must say, this is all so unexpected. I feel as if reality is dissolving around me.

Okay, one more mental image: Imagine what his hair looks like. (It wasn't visible in the other picture.)

With your Cultural Stereotype Remote Viewing psychic powers engaged, you can check to see if you were right by viewing this CNN video interview of xhim, in which xhis important scholar xexplains why xit's important and worthy your money to study zehis "course" on "Polticizing Beyonce."

Update/Flashback: This is the same asshole who threatened in November that if he sees any Trump bumper stickers on the streets, his "breaks would go out" and he would "run you off the road."

He also asked if everyone would be cool if he got a gun and started "randomly" shooting "white people."
