Allyn Walker and ODU to Part Ways

by Kerry Dougherty

It’s official.

Allyn Walker, the Old Dominion University assistant professor who wants to normalize perceptions about pedophilia is out at ODU. Or rather, Walker will be out at the conclusion of the spring semester, when the professor’s contract expires.

Walker was placed on administrative leave earlier this month when an interview of the professor’s bizarre attitude toward pedophiles went viral.

In the meantime, the professor who uses the pronouns “they/them” and prefers to call pedophiles “minor-attracted people” will remain on leave and continue to draw an ODU paycheck.

This delay may do little to staunch the national outrage over the repulsive positions this professor has taken towards perverts who are sexually aroused by children.

In an email to the university community this afternoon, ODU President Brian O. Hemphill announced that “Walker has decided to step down from their position as assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at the conclusion of the Spring 2022 semester. As I previously explained, and as both the University and Dr. Walker reiterated in our joint statement today, our decisions were made to protect the life and safety of faculty members and others on campus and beyond.”

Nice try, but it looks like ODU is trying to have it both ways:

The school wants to placate irate parents, students and especially donors who were disgusted that someone trying to excuse pedophilia was on the faculty of their beloved institution, while at the same time this school is trying to avoid an ugly lawsuit from leftist groups who believe that “academic freedom” includes using one’s connection to a prestigious school to push a repulsive agenda.

Given the radical leanings of many academics, it is rumored that some faculty members would revolt if Walker were simply sacked.

Keep an eye on ODU’s donations to see how this latest development plays with alums.

    I would bet, given the statements I heard, that people just decide its all a play and move. They still are doing tons of things on the side that would make one question that commitment.

  2. I understand this dope is being asked to apply to the Loudoun AND Fairfax County School Board since his pronoun is plural.

      Can’t believe what happened to Fairfax County in the last few years. My living there from 1955 thru 1974 was great. Sure don’t miss it now…

      Please … “this dope” should be “those dopes”.

      1. Sorry. My adherence to science and grammar got the better of me. I’ll work on doing better next time.

  3. Score another win for cancel culture.
