The researcher behind some well-known gender studies is accused of making them all up.
Nicolas Guéguen is a psychologist who publishes lots of gender studies that seem uniquely appropriate to the internet era.

(Did you just click that headline? Lord knows a lot of people did.)
Paris, France is just too real for some tourists to handle. This results in Japanese tourists getting sick, and seeking therapy because of unmet expectations.

While the name implies something young and idealized, it can be a very serious disorder that, in the tourist season of 2011, affected twenty tourists visiting the city of lights, according to The Atlantic.
