A Feminist Version of Mein Kampf

Feminist journal Affilia: Journal of Women & Social Work, has published a fake research article titled:

Our Struggle Is My Struggle: Solidarity Feminism as an Intersectional Reply to Neoliberal and Choice Feminism

The last 3,600 words is Mein Kampf (Vol. 1., Chapter 12) rewritten from the perspective of intersectional feminism, using peer-reviewed references and terminology.  The paper received praise from its academic reviewers  “The reviewers are supportive of the work and noted its potential to generate important dialogue for social workers and feminist scholars.”

Peer-reviewed literature has an important impact on society.  This paper received approval for publication because to nicely fitted the ideological position of the reviewers, despite the evocative title.   It says a great deal about the standards of academic research in certain portions of the social “studies” disciplines and the corruption of academic principles that has occurred on campus.

It would seem that all research is not created equal and the same must apply to post-graduate degrees in general.
