Reading through the wiki, I found this gem in Mosquito Man:

Curiously, mosquito men will occasionally visit your fort in caravans. However, they have only been observed to offer one human doctor, two human bandits, and one human wearing a steel mask with high physical attributes. While you have to buy the doctor, there is no charge for the other three.
Contrary to popular belief, mosquito men are quite small.
IF I GRASPED YOUR MASK WITH MY RIGHT HAND AND RETAINED IT WOULD YOU DIE

It would extremely painful

You're a gigantic guy with incredible muscles

Hmm, looks like she's got something of an "inaccessible" background herself... I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't another "ban white people from voting" story.

I have no idea what any of this is supposed to be a reference to.

This heavily memed scene from The Dark Knight Rises. The phenomenon is known as Baneposting.

...if I remove this context, will you die?

If it was a fake of some sort, she wouldn't be listed on several university's faculty pages. Here's her linkedIn for a start:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/whitney-stark-a94923b

and the stuff I quoted was straight from the source journal, The Minnesota Review, which is a reputable academic journal. dukeupress.edu is a domain belonging to Duke University, which hosts The Minnesota Review. Trust me, this stuff is completely legit postmodernist stuff. The reason fakes like the Sokal paper manage to slip through is because most of the real stuff is actually exactly like it.

You just have to pick some random articles from Minnesota review:

Corpor(e)al Cartographies of New Materialism: Meeting the Elsewhere Halfway

This essay sketches cartographies of new materialism with reference to theoretical dynamics and transformations of the category of the body. By tracing interconnections between concepts of corporeality coined by Elizabeth Grosz, transcorporeality developed by Stacy Alaimo, and “viscous porosity” introduced by Nancy Tuana and referring to the philosophical work of Brian Massumi and Erin Manning and also to artistic work by Pinar Yoldas, this article introduces the concept of the body depicted as always gesturing toward what is beyond and more than a body and as intrinsically oriented toward its own “elsewhere.” This reconceptualization of the body proves its ability to “push dualisms to the extreme.”

I'm not even sure what their definition of the word "body" is meant to be.

Best Wiki page ever

Some ethnic slurs are just... Hilarious. Granted they're awful and evil. But who the fuck calls someone a honkie or quashie without feeling ridiculous? Septic tank yank and Merikan are my favorite applicable to me.

... Ignorant racists I guess.

It just seems so passive aggressive. Imagine calling someone the 'greatest' sarcastically non-stop

Ah, saudi arabia. Where camels enter beauty pageants and women are treated like property. Truly a magical place.
