Sexual harassment sustains biodiversity via producing negative density‐dependent population growth. Kobayashi, Journal of Ecology. besjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.11… My latest work is published, showing evolution of sexual harassment controls the population growth rate according to density

Wokelahoma! @ColinJCarlson
so, @JEcology I can't imagine a good faith reading of the editorial process that happened here, but whatever happened, in no uncertain terms: this is a failure of peer review and journal management
Wokelahoma! @ColinJCarlson
here's the author weighing in. this is a bit iffy especially if something literally got lost in translation but...using sexual harassment as a term in evolutionary behavior research is a thing that's very 1990s and not, in any case, a good read of the room right now pic.twitter.com/fCyOQf8vm3

Wokelahoma! @ColinJCarlson
My quarrel, therefore, is 100% with the journal

This is an unbelievably poor choice of words. "Sexual conflict" is a term with established and specific meaning in evolutionary ecology. "Sexual harassment" is too — and they're not synonyms. twitter.com/JEcology/statu…

If you've got a PhD in evolutionary biology, you've got the wherewithal to choose terminology with some basic awareness of what words mean
𝑦𝑒 Nice ﹠Accurate Jeremy Yoder @JBYoder
Evolutionary biology has, historically, had a fairly substantial blind spot about gross sexual anthropomorphizing and the lesson to take from that is that we should be prepared to think about this stuff when we're talking about sex evolution-institute.org/article/coming…
Colin Rowe @lowericon
@JEcology “Diversity through rape” was their first draft title, but they thought it might confuse and anger people.
Joe Ballenger, ScienceMaster @Stylopidae
Mmmmmm...this is a bad title, given the tendency of the Skeptic community to misapply biological science concepts to defend their misguided notions of how society works. I'm sure there's other ways to discuss sexual conflict in nature without framing it this way. twitter.com/JEcology/statu…
Brian Lovett @lovettbr
@Stylopidae Not to mention the possibility of conflating "biodiversity" and "diversity".
Joe Ballenger, ScienceMaster @Stylopidae
@lovettbr Yeah, it's important to mention that the paper itself isn't discussing sexual harassment in the way that the #MeToo movement is discussing...but I'm sure that it's going to take all of 5 minutes for certain people in the Skeptic community to pretend that it is.
James Waters @lovetheants
@hormiga @kobakaz_jp @BritishEcolSoc The title and terminology is revolting and offensive as is the whole premise of the paper. It’s like authors type an equation and reviewers/editors jump to publish. It’s just an imaginary model, no data or validation whatsoever?!
Joe Ballenger, ScienceMaster @Stylopidae
@lovettbr So, yeah. IDK. Like...I totally understand the phenomenon they're describing, and this sort of verbiage is used in the papers they cite. However, I read titles like this and think to myself 'Scientists need to consider how bad actors will interpret and use this research.'
Terry McGlynn @hormiga
@lovetheants @kobakaz_jp @BritishEcolSoc in concept, I'm okay with a pure modeling paper (though it would be a lot better if it was validated with existing datasets), but yeah it does look like it's just a mathematical excuse to make light of a very serious concern in our discipline
Julie Blommaert 👩🏼‍🔬 @Julie_B92
Imagine thinking a paper title like this, in reference to plant evolution, is totally ok The authors should have chosen it, the reviewers should have objected, the editors should have told them to change it Why has this been published like this @JEcology? @DavidJohnGibson? twitter.com/JEcology/statu…
Jeff Clements @biolumiJEFFence
The chosen terminology in this paper is outstandingly immature, completely unnecessary, and, quite frankly, dangerous (pop media twists can be unforgiving). A contemporary failure from @JEcology and @BritishEcolSoc. How does this get through peer review with that title!? twitter.com/JEcology/statu…
Joel McGlothlin @joelmcglothlin
@JBYoder Probably a translation issue. Still hard to believe this got past the editors!
Jesse Alston @IntegratEcology
@hormiga @kobakaz_jp @BritishEcolSoc In many places in this paper, the author displays an incomplete grasp of English use and syntax—I think it’s reasonable to be generous in our assumptions about his motives. This is far more the fault of the reviewers, editors, and journal staff, IMO
𝑦𝑒 Nice ﹠Accurate Jeremy Yoder @JBYoder
@joelmcglothlin Editors, at least three reviewers, AND an author who is an adult with a doctorate working in an international field that uses English as a primary language.
𝑦𝑒 Nice ﹠Accurate Jeremy Yoder @JBYoder
@joelmcglothlin If *I* were submitting a paper about sexual anything in a language other than my first, I'd make damn sure I had the vocabulary right.
