RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina State University professor has been suspended and the university has launched an investigation after students reported the faculty member as saying "women are useless" during a recent lecture, authorities said Wednesday.

Lauren Leslie Barker, an NCSU spokeswoman, said in an email to WRAL Wednesday that, "The faculty member has been immediately suspended from teaching while this incident is being further investigated. At NC State we take pride in our campus culture which values and strives to live our commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity."

Tweets from at least two students indicated the professor was Dr. E. David Davis, who teaches physics. They also indicated the incident happened Tuesday.

A student identified Davis as the professor during an interview with WRAL News.

In one tweet, a student said "For ppl asking, he called on 2 female students and was really rude and condescending to them. He word for word said “the women in this class are useless let me call on a man” and after I called him out he said it was a “joke” bc women are important for our species to reproduce."

He must be pretty old or lacking in common sense if he thinks he can say that in class and get away with it.

Are you kidding me? Why did E. D. Davis think he could get away with a comment like this? Did he think he was D. Trump or something?

This might not make a big difference to anyone but other students are saying that this wasn't word for word. That what he actually said was "the women in this class are useless today". But they're also saying that he's been known to be gruff and non-PC as a normal part of teaching, calling students stupid and things like that.


The reproductive comment was just digging the hole deeper.

He probably knows his subject matter but needs to get out into the world a bit more.
It appears he may have enhanced opportunity to do so now, with some free time on his calendar.


Jeeze. Shades of the '50's and '60's....

It's now a thing among the alt right to consider women only useful as breeders - I'm curious about what/who this guy follows on social media. Good riddance.

That's why the incels have such a cross over with that group.


Tough to get a date with a woman when you view women as nothing more than a biological dumpster.


Captain Caveman called, he wants his ideas back.
