Peer-Reviewed Journal Publishes Gender Studies Hoax Claiming Penises Cause Climate Change

A peer-reviewed academic journal published on Friday a hoax gender studies paper titled, “The Conceptual Penis As A Social Construct.”

Two academics, Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay, used pen names to successfully submit the hoax paper — which argued that “the penis vis-à-vis maleness is an incoherent construct” — to the peer-reviewed journal Cogent Social Sciences. Boghossian and Lindsay cited 20 sources, none of they say they read, and five of which are fake papers that were “published” in journals that don’t actually exist.

    The Emperor has no clothes. The Left summed up.

        Sokal acolytes strike again!
        I guess science is too important to be left to govt grant scientists. It should like the old old days where scientists or amateurs in the equivalent of the garage would advance science. Or go on these epic road trips

    The penis is mightier than the word.

    The whole Globalist Leftist Progressive neo Marxist Machination could be brought down by one person who tells the truth.

    Every few years there’s a revelation like this. The subject matter doesn’t matter in the least. People have submitted articles composed of machine generated buzzword nonsense with graphs and charts pulled down from the web. And those were published. Similarly there are several websites that can automatically generate a column indistinguishable from the real Tom Friedman of the NYT. The more education people have the easier it is to bury them in bullshit.

    Well, if you can’t blind them with brilliance baffle them with bullshit.

    It should be no secret by now that peer review is nothing more than an exercise in reciprocal ass covering.

    It must be true, because every time I hear feminist Trudeau talk about global warming, I think “What a dick”.

  • clearsky

    No wonder the article passed all supposed checks and was published. It is within mainstream BS published as post-modern “science”. Their peer review actually worked very well.

    That is why i never mix with mist teachers. Brainwashed morins who will not question.
