Tuvel, Transgenderism, and Anti-Philosophy: Zoe Samuzdi Edition

   These tweets do a fair job of summarizing what's gone wrong with much of academia. Of course every discipline has its bullshit. But it's worse than that in the less-rigorous, more political parts of the humanities and social sciences. Really, this sort of nonsense could easily be a parody of academic BS. Sadly, philosophy seems to be on its way down the road to perdition, too.
   The worst of these may be:
She [Tuvel] extracted structures from historical function into the realm of liberal individual choice in order to force analogy where there is none
   What utter nonsense. And also: Not liberal individual choice?!?!?!?!??? Seriously, could anything be more terrible? And as for "forc[ing] an analogy where there is none"...well...just denying it over and over won't make it true. If the analogy weren't so extraordinarily strong and obvious, the PC left probably wouldn't have to keep insisting that it isn't there.
