Within a week of launch, a website called The College Fix ran a misleading story written by a college freshman describing my study. Oh, and they gave it an inflammatory click-bait headline.

The Rise and Fall of One Professor’s Penis Study - Feminist Reflections
A torrent of penis drawings in different locations across the Virginia Tech campus last fall drew numerous bias complaints from students, leaving university administrators grappling for answers as to whether the university had been targeted by a penis-drawing bandit. According to bias incident reports obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request, a total of 45 total reports were filed with the university in the fall semester. It seems campus leaders may have spent a great deal of time policing phrases and images drawn on dorm room doors with dry-erase pens. In September, two different female dorm roommates also found someone had drawn a picture of penises on the whiteboard affixed to the outside of their door. The roommates said they often used the board to write jokes to make others laugh, but feared the penises were a sign someone was mad at them. While alarmed enough to report the incident, students told the university that they did not feel they were in danger, according to the reports. Virginia Tech administrators did not respond to requests by The College Fix to comment, so it is unclear whether they suspected these images were the act of a lone student or a gang of genitalia artists.
