Old Dominion University has removed a controversial professor who advocated for "minor-attracted people," following disruptions on campus.

Dr. Allyn Walker, a female-to-male trans, was placed on paid leave amid public backlash to Walker's research and book titled "A Long Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity."

In the book, Walker claims so-called "non-offenders" -- pedophiles who don't act on their urges -- should be treated with empathy.

Dr. Walker supports "affirming therapy" for non-offenders by using child pornography and child sex dolls to suppress their urges toward children.

Part of affirming therapy is to change "pedophile" to MAPs because the P-word is offensive to non-offenders.

ODU issued a statement announcing Walker's suspension on Tuesday.

"Reactions to Dr. Walker's research and book have led to concerns for their safety and that of the campus. Furthermore, the controversy over Dr. Walker's research has disrupted the campus and community environment and is interfering with the institution's mission of teaching and learning."

A Change.org petition calling for the removal of Dr. Walker from the ODU campus has collected over 11,000 signatures so far.

One person who signed the petition wrote:

"I am disgusted that Old Dominion would employ someone who tries to normalize the sexuality of Pedophiles. They should think of the children in their own families."

Actor Brian Michael Smith was named to PEOPLE magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive' list, according to Eurweb.com.

PEOPLE magazine named actor Paul Rudd as this year's 'Sexiest Man Alive'. But critics complained that the top honor should have gone to a Black man.

As a consolation prize, PEOPLE also published the 25 "Sexiest Men You Can Watch on TV Now" list and Smith, who played Paul Strickland on "9-1-1: Lone Star," made the cut.

Smith, who was born a biological female, was ecstatic to be so honored.

"I've been called many things, this is a first," Smith wrote on Instagram. "Incredibly honored to be included in this list with so many actors I admire."

Old Dominion University students have launched a petition to remove a female-to-male trans professor who promotes legalizing pedophilia.

Dr. Allyn Walker, who teaches sociology and criminal justice at ODU, sparked outrage by changing the terminology "pedophile" to MAPs: minor-attracted persons.

In a book titled A Long Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity, Walker argues that minor-attracted people are simply misunderstood.

Walker writes:

"A lot of people when they hear the term 'pedophile', they automatically assume that it means a sex offender, and that isn't true. And it leads to a lot of misconceptions about attractions towards minors."

Walker continued:

"From my perspective, there is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone because no one can control who they're attracted to at all. In other words, it's not who we're attracted to that's either OK or not OK. It's our behaviors in responding to that attraction that are either OK or not OK."

Old Dominion University's administration responded by distancing itself from Walker's comments, but stopped short of removing the professor.

Alumni are outraged at the school's response to the controversy.

A Change.org petition calling for the school to remove Walker has garnered nearly 3,000 signatures.

Mikiah Everett, an ODU alumnus, said she was "disgusted" by ODU's decision.

"We do not need to change the 'terminology' for pedophiles," Everett said.

"I am disgusted at their response to protect someone that is an advocate for pedophiles and affiliated with the organization Prostasia (a pedophilia advocate group under the guise of a children protection organization.) Dr. Walker has crossed a line and has dressed it up in academic jargon."

Walker reacted to the outrage by saying, "I want to be clear: child sexual abuse is an inexcusable crime."

Walker, who has interviewed child victims as part of research, said:

"As an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice, the goal of my research is to prevent crime. I embarked on this research in hopes of gaining understanding of a group that, previously, has not been studied in order to identify ways to protect children."

The mother of a skirt-wearing teenage boy who raped a girl in a Loudon County, Virginia school bathroom says her son is a troubled boy who just wanted sex.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, the mother, who asked not to be identified, said her son is not a male-to-female transgender.

"He's a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing," she said. "And they're twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue."

"He would wear a skirt one day and then the next day, he would wear jeans and a t-shirt, a Polo or hoodie. He was trying to find himself and that involved all kinds of styles. I believe he was doing it because it gave him attention he desperately needed and sought."

She acknowledged her son's deviant, predatory behavior that included sending nude photos of himself to a girl in fifth grade.

The story made headlines after outraged parent Scott Smith, the father of the rape victim, was dragged out of a school board meeting with a bloodied mouth on June 22.

Initially, it was reported that Smith was protesting critical race theory being taught at the school. He was mocked online and his photos went viral on social media.

Then Smith told his story -- that he confronted school board officials over the brutal rape of his daughter by a transgender child.

Former President Barack Obama weighed in on the controversy by dismissing the rape as a "Phony, Trumped-Up Culture War."

School officials initially denied knowing that a girl had been sexually assaulted in the school bathroom.

It was then revealed that the same boy raped another girl in the bathroom at a school where he was secretly transferred.

On October 25, a judge found the boy guilty of the May 28 "forcible sodomy and forcible fellatio" rape of the girl. He is awaiting sentencing.

Sidney Starr appeared on a segment of The Real to discuss a viral video that showed the male-to-female trans influencer booed up with Family Matters actor Darius McCrary.

Sidney was vague and talking in circles about their relationship. Sidney said the impact of the viral video really hit them hard.

"It hit us really hard. I don't think neither I or Darius knew how hard that was gonna hit. And, I mean, as you could see, society was not ready for this at all."

"'This' meaning what?" said Jeannie Mai-Jenkins. "I wanna know about you and Darius. Were you guys dating?"

Sidney responded:

"We are friends. He's a very good friend of mine. That's all I'ma say. He's fun to hang out with. As you could see I'm a fun girl to hang out with... Anybody would wanna be Sidney Starr's friend."

Then co-host Loni Love got serious with Sidney about "issues with the transgender community and with dating and the perceptions that people have."

Sidney insisted that straight, heterosexual males can hang out with transgenders and not be considered down-low homosexuals.

"All we wanted to do was just kinda show you all like... this is okay... Girls, look at me. It's not like I look like Arnold Schwarzenegger with a wig on!"

Dave Chappelle refuses to bend to demands from a group of transgender Netflix employees.

The comedian's representatives announced he would meet with the employees after refusing to meet with them for weeks.

Chappelle joked he will meet with the Netflix employees - if they admit lesbian comedienne Hannah Gadsby isn't funny.

Hannah is a male-identified lesbian who criticized Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos after he defended Chappelle's Netflix special, The Closer.

The controversial comic, who is currently on a 10-city comedy tour, shared a video to Instagram from his Nashville show, in which he addressed the Netflix employees directly.

"To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody's demands," the Emmy winner says in the five-minute Instagram clip. Comments on the post appear to have been turned off.

He added:

"And if you want to meet with me, I'd be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny."

In the Instagram video, Chappelle said he was disinvited from film festivals following The Closer backlash.

"Thank God for Ted Sarandos and Netflix, he's the only one that didn't cancel me yet."

According to a source who was at the Nashville show, Dave started his set with a "statement" to those he'd offended, jokingly pulling out a piece of paper and reading "F**k y'all, n**gas!" TMZ reported.

Chappelle will air a documentary, "Untitled," during his tour stops in 10 cities, including Atlanta on Nov. 21.

Darius's future wife is reportedly furious over the timing of these video leaks.

Darius and his fiancée reportedly believe Sidney is behind the leaks. They believe Sidney is desperate to disrupt Darius' upcoming nuptials.

Darius, who was raised in a 2-parent household, was married three times to Juliette Merrill Vann (2005-2006); Karrine Steffans (2009-2011), and Tammy Brawner (2014-2017).

The Netflix employee walkout is happening now outside Netflix's Los Angeles headquarters in protest over Dave Chappelle's comedy special.

Hundreds of employees walked out of Netflix's headquarters on Wednesday, Oct. 20. The protesters are angry over Chappelle's transgender jokes in his comedy special The Closer.

"Transphobia is not a joke," said Ashlee Marie Preston (pictured), who organized the walkout.

"We're up against the emergence of hate economy. And there is this manipulation of algorithmic science that distorts the way that we perceive ourselves and others. And I think that companies like Netflix, Facebook, and Instagram, they play into it, and they monetize on it. And so I think that this is important to show up today."

Preston invited Chappelle to meet with them before the walkout, but he refused.

Chappelle's transgender supporters tried to disrupt the protest.

Counter protesters held up signs reading "Jokes Are Funny," and "Netflix Don't Cancel Free Speech."

"We are protesting this walkout. They have the right to do it, but we have the right to standup for Dave Chappelle and his freedom of expression," said Gigi LaRoux, a transgender Chappelle supporter.

"This boils down to equality, and if people want equality they need to be put on the same level as anybody else. Comedians are equal opportunity destroyers. You can't pick and choose who you're going to make fun of."

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos walked back memos he sent to staff in support of Chappelle.

"I can tell you I screwed up those two communications, but my stance hasn't changed," Sarandos said in a phone interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Sarandos said he should have acknowledged that "a group of our employees were in pain" and "hurt" by the company's decision to air the special.

"I'd say those emails lacked humanity, in which I like to and I do generally communicate with our teams," he added.

In an Instagram stories video, Darius scolded social media users for believing the rumors that he is transgender-attracted.

"Listen y'all, while y'all discussing these rumors that aren't true, we eating," said Darius.

"And they aren't true either," added JoMarie. "They are not true, Ok?" .

Darius continued:

"But I will say this: what are we in high school? You're going to tell me who I can't be friends with, who I can't hang out with? I mean, I'm a grown man. I'm really 5 years from 50... If I wasn't with my momma, I would really be saying this a whole 'nother way. But I'm being respectful because my momma right here."

He may not be respectful to his ex-wives, but he's very respectful to his elders.

Darius went on to say his "fiancée would really have something different to say" about the rumors. "That's what y'all really should be focusing on: where that ring is."

Netflix's co-CEO Ted Sarandos, pictured with his wife Nicole Avant, previously said he would not pull The Closer off the air after three employees were suspended for crashing an annual meeting of Netflix's top directors.

The three employees were reinstated this week. However, Netflix's transgender employees plan to strike on Oct. 20.

Netflix's other co-CEO Reed Hastings told angry staff "We are on the right side of history" in a post on an internal message board.

Lesbian comedian Hannah Gadsby wrote an open letter to Sarandos on Instagram slamming him for using her name to defend Chappelle.

"F**k you and your amoral algorithm cult..." she wrote.
