Chinese Professor Insults Female Students

He Guangshun took to social media to bemoan girls' appearance in class.

Apparently, students shouldn’t be wearing sweatshirts, scrunchies, and crusted-over-chin toothpaste to class. Who knew? Why, Professor He Guangshun of the Guangdong University in China, of course. In late March, the foreign-studies professor posted a comment that he’d previously posed to his class on his (Chinese Twitter equivalent) Weibo account:

It’s cruel that girls have to come to class at 8:30 a.m. They should have more time to put on their makeup and enter the classroom elegantly. That way, encouraged and moved by their beauty, boys would have the drive to work hard.
