A group that sparked controversy after putting up posters that blasted false accusations of rape in Edmonton has turned its focus on Lise Gotell, the chair of women's and gender studies at the University of Alberta.
Men's Rights Edmonton have put up posters on the campus that show Gotell's face with the caption, "Theft isn't black. Bank fraud isn't Jewish. And rape isn't male.
"Just because you're paid to demonize men doesn't mean rape is gendered. Don't be that bigot," it adds.

"We want feminism to fall into the same disrepute as Nazism or KKK, that sort of thing,” Raz, a member of the group, told Metro News.
The posters aim to inform people that adults in position of power are filling the heads of young people with "bigoted slants," he added.
She also thanked everyone for their support, adding, "Personal attacks are no way (to) engage in conversations."
The posters angered some at the university, who took to Twitter to share their frustration.
"Lay off my friend and colleague... If you don't like the law, debate a lawmaker!" said Ryan Dunch, a professor at the university.
"Disgusted to see this on my campus," said Ashlyn Bernier.
"Just because you regret a one night stand doesn't mean it wasn't consensual," it read.
The group denied advocating or apologizing for rape at the time, saying that both rape and false accusations of rape are "abhorrent means of manipulation and power."
Men's Rights Edmonton also launched a Calgary chapter this month and wrote about "exciting times ahead of us."
