It would be more interesting if the RC posters weren't so stupid and could make serious arguments.

I agree that working on SJ topics and being a sexual minority probably helps one's career, other things being equal. But Phil Imprint is more than a mid-tier journal (which isn't to say that the paper deserved such a venue--I haven't read it).

I have read it. It's clearly written but a mid-tier article--nothing that most other anal-phils couldn't write. Basically warmed-over Hasbanger.

"I offer an account of sexual orientation – called ‘Bidimensional Dispositionalism’ – according to which sexual orientation concerns what sex[es] and gender[s] of persons one is disposed to sexually engage." ... clearly a major breakthrough.

I heard that Dembroff's Philosopher's Imprint article was published by invitation.

Rumor is it that she lost her marbles and became gender-queer as a result of her fiance dumping her. Or so my Biola sources tell me. Maybe that's why she's so quick to trash it.

It's a terrible paper.

I've heard this as well, but I can't remember where. Was it on the old meta blog? Is there any way we can substantiate this?

There are some real duds in PI, especially on these issues, even if they aren't towing the party line. There's some incomprehensible paper on race from a few years ago. I can't recall the title.

The people who support Dembroff in her confusion should be ashamed of themselves. Anyone, for that matter, who is supporting this culture of mental illness (transgenderism, homosexuality, polyamory, etc.) should be ashamed of themselves. True love isn't tolerating other people's destructive choices and behavior. True love means reaching out to others and telling them the truth they may not want to hear.

But in our phony culture of love today, cowardice is called love, while real love that speaks the truth is called hate. Everything is upside down and in reverse.

Dembroff does thank anonymous reviewers in the acknowledgments of her paper.

You have a rather inclusive notion of mental illness.

Sometimes a person is invited to submit their paper to a journal. Maybe that's what people mean when they say they heard her paper was invited?

Sin is insane. It is lunacy to destroy your mind, body, and soul by engaging in behavior that is contrary to your own nature, no? Unless you disagree, I don't see why you'd take issue with my notion of mental illness.

Is Dembroff really only in his twenties?

Their twenties. They contain multitudes.

It is a sad testament to how deep you've retreated into your academic echo chamber that you would assume that someone who's said what I've said must be a troll.

Are you truly so dead inside that you no longer can see that engaging in self-destructive behavior is insane?

Paul

Self-Destructive? What are you talking about? He's apparently in his 20s and has a TT job at Yale. He is probably making bank and has more professional opportunities flooding his desk than most senior philosophers. He'll probably secure book contracts with Oxford or Cambridge before he turns 30! If that's self-destructive, I want to self-destruct!

Yes, she's 25 or 26 (can't remember exactly).

Go ahead, you'll get plenty of encouragement. As an evil cishet whiteboi, I'd become a tranny too if an academic job seemed worth totally debasing myself over. Or at least a drag queen. It's not all that hard, considering the prevailing orthodoxy states that you can't determine a person's gender by "their" appearance. Still, not worth living a lie. I'll have to find a way to make an honest living instead, it seems.

Wow, I've been on the market for two years and have busted my ass banging out publications in mid and top tier journals. I fucking hate this cunt and her perfect fucking teeth.

No: Living in shame, full of dread and anxiety and resentment, intoxicated by an insatiable lust to pursue empty achievements and vain amusements, while trying to validate yourself through the approval of others, who you deep down know don't really care about: that is insane.
