    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 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."
