Coyne: Academic Madness: Feminist Analysis Of Squirrel Diets / Reproduction Shows Squirrels are Otherized, Gendered And Fat-Shamed

Total bullshit.
And props to Coyne for acknowledging that not all humanities scholarship is of this kind. It's important to resist the false theory that the humanities are all inherently full of shit. Paraphrasing Fareed Zakaria: the humanities are currently (largely) full of shit...but that's of course very different. One practical consequence of acknowledging this is that it might help move the offending sectors back toward less-bullshity approaches.
