“Grievance Studies” Hoax Exposed Communist Takeover of Education

grievance-studiesDo dogs suffer “oppression based upon (perceived) gender”? Can observing human-canine interactions help us disrupt “hegemonic masculinities”? Clearly, there’s a dearth of scholarly research on this subject. That’s probably why the journal Gender, Place, and Culture was so excited to publish an academic paper titled, “Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon” — to make an important contribution to the literature.
Three junior academics called attention to the subversion of the education system by submitting 20 academic parodies to scholarly journals. Seven were accepted and published before the hoax was discovered. 
The article below from The Washington Post  indicates that the solipsistic Left did not get the memo. Communism is the monopoly over everything –wealth, power, thought –by the Satanist (Masonic Jewish) central banking cartel that owns the politicians, corporations and media. Thus, truth is redefined as anything that advances this “revolutionary” goal. This has happened in academia. We will need to root out Leftists from universities. They have set the precedent by expelling Conservatives. I’m sure this won’t be necessary as they are all opportunists who will espouse anything to keep their cushy jobs. 

The authors explain their purpose.

“Something has gone wrong in the university–especially in certain fields within the humanities. Scholarship based less upon finding truth and more upon attending to social grievances has become firmly established, if not fully dominant, within these fields, and their scholars increasingly bully students, administrators, and other departments into adhering to their worldview. This worldview is not scientific, and it is not rigorous. For many, this problem has been growing increasingly obvious, but strong evidence has been lacking. For this reason, the three of us just spent a year working inside the scholarship we see as an intrinsic part of this problem.

We spent that time writing academic papers and publishing them in respected peer-reviewed journals associated with fields of scholarship loosely known as “cultural studies” or “identity studies” (for example, gender studies) or “critical theory” because it is rooted in that postmodern brand of “theory” which arose in the late sixties. As a result of this work, we have come to call these fields “grievance studies” in shorthand because of their common goal of problematizing aspects of culture in minute detail in order to attempt diagnoses of power imbalances and oppression rooted in identity.
We undertook this project to study, understand, and expose the reality of grievance studies, which is corrupting academic research. Because open, good-faith conversation around topics of identity such as gender, race, and sexuality (and the scholarship that works with them) is nearly impossible, our aim has been to reboot these conversations. We hope this will give people–especially those who believe in liberalism, progress, modernity, open inquiry, and social justice–a clear reason to look at the identitarian madness coming out of the academic and activist left and say, “No, I will not go along with that. You do not speak for me.”  Continued here

Grievance Studies Hoax reveals Much About Society

Washington Post (Oct.10) — Abridged by henrymakow.com

Do dogs suffer “oppression based upon (perceived) gender”? Can observing human-canine interactions help us disrupt “hegemonic masculinities”? Clearly, there’s a dearth of scholarly research on this subject. That’s probably why the journal Gender, Place, and Culture was so excited to publish an academic paper titled, “Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon” — to make an important contribution to the literature.
Well, sort of.
