USA. A group of authors and academic’s did an experiment that’s revealing exactly how crazy the field of gender studies is and that it’s not science.
Helen Pluckrose, James Lindsay and Peter Boghossian from the netpaper Areo were troubled by the development at universities so they wrote and submitted 20 false academic studies to relevant peer-reviewed journals. To this date four have been published and three are waiting to be, seven are under review and six were rejected.
The one that caught the medias eye and that I remember readning about is this one: Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon. It was published in a journal called Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography. One was called An Ethnography of Breastaurant Masculinity: Themes of Objectification, Sexual Conquest, Male Control, and Masculine Toughness in a Sexually Objectifying Restaurant and features a man who visits Hooters. It was published in Sex Roles: A Journal in Research. One article consisted of a chapter from Adolf Hitlers Mein Kampf. They rewrote it slightly and got it published in Affilia. Another one argued for introducing fat bodybuilding into the sport and that got printed too.
You can read their essay about the groups work and thoughts around this project here. The essay also include more information about the articles. I hope that this, together with all the other evidence that shows that gender studies is a sham, will lead to the defunding of this field.
