HEROIC: White Male Professor Allegedly Posed as Woman of Color

 Assistant Professor Craig Chapman 

 University of New Hampshire Assistant Professor Craig Chapman has recently come under scrutiny for allegedly posing as a woman of color on Twitter under the name “The Science Femme” with the handle “piney_the,” reports the student newspaper, The Newe Hampshire.

Chapman is an assistant professor within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at UNH, where he teaches chemistry.  

The student paper goes on:

In a slew of tweets dating back to June 30, 2020, The Science Femme boasted “I was successful in killing my dept’s woke statement on recent social unrest” and that he believes this to be “a toxic ideology that cannot be given an inch.” 

In multiple deleted tweets, The Science Femme stated that they were a “WOC,”or woman of color, and a “POC,” or person of color.

The Science Femme credited themselves in being successful in “removing all woke terminology from the statement including anti-racism, white supremacy, white privilege, and claims of systemic racism.”..

  These accusations come as UNH attempts to push new diversity, inclusion and equity initiatives in order to aid marginalized groups on campus. Chapman has allegedly boasted to actively sabotaging these initiatives within his department. 

“Being on these committees is the best way to steer larger policy further down the line,” The Science Femme said. “You have to endure all manner of nonsense, but do it.”  

As of Sept. 29, 2020, Chapman’s personal twitter account as well as The Science Femme were deleted.  

The New York Post writes that screenshots show The Science Femme repeatedly responded “I’m a woman of color” in counter-arguments online — including in September, when one user accused The Science Femme of attacking people of color, the Daily Beast reported.

“You know I’m a woman of color, right? Racist,” the bogus account replied.

In other posts, The Science Femme claimed to be “an immigrant woman of color who grew up in poverty, sleeping on a dirt floor.”

Chemistry Department Chair Glen Miller confirmed in an email to faculty that The Science Femme was in fact run by Chapman. Miller condemned the statements, but said he is supportive of Chapman as a person.



  1. I always like it when a POP, or Person of Paleness, creates stuff like this to mock the leftards.

  2. This might be entertaining or even interesting but how in the world could it be heroic?

    1. It’s right at the intersection bold and courageous.
