A REALLY strong sign that your “scientific” article is total hokum:

When folks raise legit questions about your obviously flawed methodology and specious conclusions, you respond by calling them whores and perverts and can’t defend your *actual* work.

I’ve presented at a number major professional conferences in multiple disciplines, and I’m a peer-reviewer for several journals. I can honestly say that I’ve never had someone try to defend work I criticized by calling me a slut. 🤷🏻‍♀️
I’ll be totally honest, the #ROGD “study” is something that I’d probably hand to undergrads that I’m trying to teach how to critique published research. The errors in both method and in analysis are egregious enough that I’d expect a college sophomore to pick them out.
I find it DEEPLY ironic that people are screaming about “academic freedom” over Brown’s decision not to promote this article, while its proponents actively harassing multiple trans women for merely pointing out important flaws in its methodology.

Here’s the thing about Spicy’s comments about trans bathrooms and the whole controversy in general:

Trans folks didn’t start the hubbub. Neither did progressives. The ENTIRE issue as a political issue was manufactured by conservatives as a scare-mongering tactic.
Trans folks have been in your damn bathrooms for decades, and everything was fine. We didn’t start fighting for laws that specifically enumerated our right to use the proper bathrooms. We just used them without making a fuss. It was scary sometimes, but it was largely a non-issue
Back in 2013, Republicans suddenly noticed trans people are like...a real thing and not some big gay myth like El Chupacabra. And they either
b) Saw an easy way to use fear of the unknown to grab votes from an ignorant public.
