It all started as an academic experiment; a group of perhaps the last free-thinking academics decided to submit a series of “fake” papers on politically correct “grievance studies” topics. One such paper was about how dogs in a park committed rape, of female dogs. This paper received a recognition of excellence by the feminist establishment for pushing the gender agenda to a place where it had not ben before. However, some journalists who still engaged in investigation, smelled something fishy, or is it “doggy,” and exposed the fake paper. Then, at least for the untenured philosopher on the team, Peter Boghossian, the system turned its attention to him, much like some obese man turns to swat an annoying biting insect: https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-11-university-professor-targeted-by-liberals-gender-studies-is-junk-science.html https://www.dailywire.com/news/41887/professor-who-published-fake-gender-studies-papers-ashe-schow
“A Portland State University (PSU) professor who took part in an academic hoax to prove that academia turns a blind eye to reason when gender issues are involved is now facing disciplinary actions. PSU philosophy professor Peter Boghossian is being investigated by his employer for committing a “human subjects” ethics violation by contributing to the hoax, which itself was an academic study. Filmmaker Mike Nayna, who previously documented Boghossian and his associates’ attempts to call out so-called Grievance Studies for their lack of academic rigor, announced the professor was under fire Saturday night in a tweet. “Portland State University has determined that @peterboghossian committed a “human subjects” ethics violation for his involvement in the Grievance Studies probe. Further charges of falsifying data are currently under review,” Nayna wrote.
