SIO296: The Journal of Controversial Ideas

Recently, Jeff McMahan, Francesca Minerva and Peter Singer started a journal called The Journal of Controversial Ideas. In it, people can post racist transphobic stuff that is TOO controversial for other journals! (except that it totally isn’t.) Lindsey and I give some background, and do a fair bit of yelling about the race science paper published in the first issue of the journal.
Links: “Who Is The Victim In The Anna Stubblefield Case?”, “Gender Muddle: Reply to Dembroff”, “Cognitive Creationism Compared to Young-Earth Creationism”, Holly Dunsworth’s essay, VBW on IQ & Race, pt 1 and pt 2
