A very powerful journal to say the least. Their polemic against "le SJWs" is probably among the worst, at a base level it doesn't even look at any specific group or people, on a higher level it is just right-wing talking points("tumblr") and intellectual posing(long explanation about how the brain works for some reason). The essay on eclecticism is purely intellectual posing through just spamming big quotes to discredit marxist-feminism or whatever.

In general I do not understand the "left-communist" and it's regroupings preoccupation with just attacking feminism while rarely actually engaging with any feminist theory or organisations(and if they do they refer to movements from the start of the 20th century to call feminism class collaboration now).
