Christina Hoff Summers tweeted out this quote from gender theorist Judith Butler:
Would that this were an anomaly, but it isn’t. Alleged intellectuals and scholars practice such authentic frontier gibberish (AFG) to make dubious theories impossible to rebut, to intimidate opponents into thinking undecipherable speech is evidence of intellect, and indoctrinate students into parroting radical cant that supports extreme ideologies. Theories that can’t be articulated clearly aren’t theories but constructs built on foundations of cheese. No responsible institution of learning should employ scholars who speak or write, much less think, like that, but in truth all universities do, and not just a few of such scholars, either. This is where radical feminist theory came from; this is where much of Progressive Crazy Town get its delusions., this what spawned “intersectionality.”
How long will it take for American society to conclude, as I did long ago, that charging students beggering levels of tuition to be taught by people like this is a scam supreme, and that voluntarily going into debt to pay such tuition is madness?
