Among the many things one might say about that sentence: some people, apparently, have no sense of intellectual shame.

This person is being given a Ph.D. to write a teen-angst-ridden personal diary entry on the condition that department-approved obscure language encoding is implemented.

I should write a script to translate these things by replacing all "technical" terminology with plain English definitions. It would take like two seconds if someone writes me the list of equivalences.

It would be amusing to pair these NRPR postings with translated companions.

"Written from the perspective of a guilt-ridden-white, obese, bisexual, middle-class girl-ok-with-being-a-girl graduate student in Canada, the wedding ritual and bride are asserted to be ideal female/feminine concepts."

Might have to add some full-sentence translations for common ones (sadly, this probably includes "Compulsory heterosexuality is implicated.")
