He laments the flood of “intellectual impostor’s” who attempt to pass themselves off as serious academics, philosophers and scientists by just using words of a sesquipedalian nature in the hope of impressing people.
One interesting paragraph highlights the immense stupidity and paranoia of feminists:
The feminist ‘philosopher’ Luce Irigaray is another who is given whole chapter treatment by Sokal and Bricmont. In a passage reminiscent of a notorious feminist description of Newton’s Principia (a ‘rape manual’) Irigaray argues that E=mc2 is a ‘sexist equation’. Why? Because ‘it privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us’ (my emphasis of what I am rapidly coming to learn is an in-word).
It’s almost as bad as the feminist who thought Beethoven’s 5th symphony was an “instrument” (no pun intended, no doubt, given that feminist have no sense of humour) of oppression and male violence due to the aggressive and intimidating opening notes.
Perhaps that’s why Women’s Studies was created, just to keep the blithering nutcase feminists away from normal, intellectual subjects.

That’s a poignant final comment. Where would we be as a society without toothless babysitters like Women’s Studies, Oprah and Cosmo? Men grow out of cartoons. Women don’t.
You’re certainly right about no feminist having a sense of humour. The only joke a feminist every makes is her life.
