    A Sokal-style hoax against "gender studies" called "The conceptual penis as a social construct", complete with fake references generated by an online postmodern gibberish generator, has been pulled off against a supposed social science journal.

    Fake paper here: https://web.archive.org/web/20170519...17.1330439.pdf

    Authors' explanation here: http://www.skeptic.com/reading_room/...ender-studies/

    Nice work chaps.

    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    The journal was pretty new but a reputable publishing house so a solid hit.

    Here is a defence of that hoax against critics by Helen Pluckrose, who is "critical of postmodernism and cultural constructivism which she sees as currently dominating the humanities."

    Dog appointed to the editorial boards of seven medical journals and asked to be a reviewer.

    "Several journals have published on their websites a supplied photo of Dr Doll, which is actually of a bespectacled Kylie Minogue."
