James Lindsay, Major Grifter, discovers grievance studies sleeper cells

James Lindsay, author at Quillette of "Why No One Cares About Feminist Theory" cares very much about the people who care about feminist theory - the kind of theory discussed in the publications that he and his IDW-adjacent colleagues Helen Pluckrose and Peter Boghossian (notable for being one of Stefan Molyneux's most frequent guests) targeted as part of their grievance studies grift.

The IDW has a tendency to get hysterical about anything controversial in Academia (except for when the Koch brothers are involved) but James Lindsay, Major Grifter, is really over the top here, apparently claiming that "grievance studies" have been festering for fifty-plus years, waiting to metastasize "as it always intended to."

Maybe Lindsay is hoping for a senate subcommittee to investigate and to call forward fellow travelers to name names of those who have been nefariously planning for half a century to rot society from within.
