Huh, reminds me of a similar thing I uncovered at Anandtech back in the day.

I couldn't follow that mess. I tried to drop some bread crumbs to find my way back, but bailed about halfway through the article.

Some woman made up another woman, trolled a bunch of people for months, tried to bail and got caught.

All in the name of the #Metoo movement and in order to attract Native American followers while being accused by her website employees of being racist.

The whole thing, if it proves true, kind of blows all of her past accusations and the work she has done for women in STEM out of the water.

I have my money on this being some hilarious misunderstanding like we'd see on Three's Company.

Confusing. How many anthropology professors could their be at ASU anyway? How could there be a fictitious professor that people interacted with but nobody ever checked the staff directory or whatever?

Someone who cosplays a god-tier "woke" persona, LGBTQ Native American Anthropology professor, is a total nutcase.

So this proves that COVID is a hoax!  As are LGBTQ people, Native Americans, and Arizona State University.

The scam goes deeper than that. It turns out that Arizona State isn't even a real university.

She used a pseudonym and spoke convincingly enough that people took her at face value instead of trying to dox her.

You think a school is going to question a LGBTQ, indigenous woman? Not believing her would be a fireable offense.

Now, now.  That's not entirely true.

COVID deaths aren't lies.

@Sciencing_Bi wrote about her supposed battle with COVID-19 in dramatic terms. "ASU kept teachers, staff and students on campus until April. That's well after we knew this was a killer disease. Many got covid. Including me," read a May 23 tweet by @Sciencing_Bi, whose name on Twitter was given as only "Alepo" next to a rainbow flag.

That article made me want to stab someone in the eye.  Not for it's alleged "content" but for the bloated, meandering way they told the "story"  which basically boiled down to "this twitter account was a fake..probably...we think..so far anyway, and this other person who said she knew her?  well she's apparently kinda crazy and doesn't treat her staff well

Lots. There are like 45,000 traditional undergraduate students, and when you include grad students, satellite campuses, and online students it comes in at 119,000 students. The Tempe campus is in the center of Maricopa county, which has 4.5 million people. ASU is monstrous. Parking in Tempe was like getting a spot to park your car all day in Manhattan. You don't want to ever move your car again.

I got a C in a Spanish 490 level class -- lexicography. I had stopped going to that class in October because I had arranged transfer to U of A. THAT was a total gimme. I just didn't want to try to find parking to get to the registrar's office to drop the course. There are only 24 hours in a day.

Oh, they're going to start doing that now, are they?

Anyway, having never heard of this to begin with, my money's on alt-right troll.

If the internet has taught us anything it's don't take people on the internet at face value.

For that matter, don't take anyone at face value until you can actually see their face.

"The dispute between McLaughlin and Ruli began during an online video chat for sexual harassment survivors on Jan. 30. Ruli questioned McLaughlin's advice to involve police in complaints, given historical experiences of people of color. Things quickly escalated. After Ruli said "all cops are Nazis," McLaughlin told them "to not stereotype cops" and to "be sensitive to those who have cops as family members," Ruli told BuzzFeed News.
Ruli later sought an apology for what they regarded as McLaughlin's "tone policing.""

What a clusterfark.  Everyone involved is just so special.

Might end up being an unpopular opinion, but regardless of the cause or whether it is left, right or centrist, many many activists are insane.  Discard the cause and the leaders seem to have similar traits.  Narcissism, martyrdom, persecution complexes.  Put a microphone (or worse yet, a megaphone) and they won't shut up.

This consumers their lives and it defines them.

Feeling persecuted and feeling strongly enough a cause to be willing to die for it seems like the top reasons to become an activist in the first place.

The best part is she was responding to Ruli calling all cops Nazis.  I actually read both articles in full and it is just some special people, I don't know how else to describe them.

Schools like Grand Canyon University exist to make ASU seem legit, much like pro wrestling exists to make boxing look legit.
