Feminist Examines 10,000 Dog Genitals

More absurdities from our friends, the universities, full of Arts/Farts/Humanities departments where this sort of bullshit …. sorry … dog shit … is freely cultivated.
“A women’s studies researcher says she examined the genitals of 10,000 dogs for her study on canine “rape culture” this month.
The journal Gender, Place, and Culture, is a monthly peer-reviewed publication that focuses on issues of feminist geography. In 2015, it was ranked the thirteenth most influential women’s studies academic journal in the world.
This year, the journal published an unusual piece by researcher Helen Wilson about “rape culture” in “urban dog parks.” The article, titled “Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon,” astonishingly argues that female dogs suffer oppression at the paws of male dogs and that humans are indifferent to violence between dogs.
In what must have been an attempt to reach peak academic absurdity, Wilson says that she examined the genitals of almost 10,000 dogs during her observational study into canine “rape culture.”
“The usual caveats of observational research also apply here,” Wilson wrote. “While I closely and respectfully examined the genitals of slightly fewer than ten thousand dogs, being careful not to cause alarm and moving away if any dog appeared uncomfortable, there is some relevant margin of error concerning my observations about their gender in some instances.”
I was curious about many things, here, especially why a study of doggy rape culture would involve examining the genitals of 10,000 dogs, and how exactly this could be done “respectively.” You know, without victim violation.
I am aware about a number of recent articles in the mainstream press about women being convicted for fucking male dogs, so I wondered how this sociological phenomenon fitted into her feminist paradigm. Thus, I read the original article, only stopping to vomit, but then continuing on my relentless quest, seeking truth and enlightenment:
I found no answers to my questions, but I did find this gem:
“It is my hope that this article will contribute to the longstanding tradition in social psychology and symbolic interactionism as it intersects with queer and feminist concerns relevant to studies of human geography. Observational studies of animalism in urban public life may become instrumental to understanding and eventually disrupting constructed cultures of hegemonic masculinities and reorganizing public spaces in ways that diminish problematic themes related to gender. They may also hold potential keys to disrupt oppressive and unequal socially constructed systems, and they can liberate dogs (and other family pets) from animalized and gendered oppression while ungendering the spaces in which the current socially constructed systems dominate.
How female and (queer) male dogs are treated – by both human males and females – could provide insights into a wide range of treatment modalities that serve as helpful heuristics in understanding human social constructions and the spaces in which they play out. I anticipate further advances, additional directions, and multiple overlapping discourses in research directed toward these socially important areas in social psychology, feminist thought, and animalism.”
What the fuck?
The universities have been ground zero for all the pc bs we have faced since the 1960s. I said it before, but I will say it again, the best thing that we could do for our own survival is the close down these cesspools. That is surely a little gentler on the bowels than H. L. Mencken's suggestion that the real way to reform our universities would be to burn the buildings and hang the professors.
On a relevant tangent, here is the magic of natural selection at work:

There's a mountain of social science research that is non-reproducible and unverifiable. This is one. Bitch, lies, and bitches.

This was actually part of a "project of a team of three authors—James A. Lindsay, Peter Boghossian, and Helen Pluckrose—to highlight what they regarded as poor scholarship in several academic fields."

"These published articles included arguments that dogs engage in rape culture and that men could reduce their transphobia by anally penetrating themselves with sex toys, and a rewrite of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf in feminist language."

It does illustrate quite beautifully the broken-ness of current acadamia.
