They are worse than this in my experience.

The main one I know of is David Benatar, who wrote the book on antinatalism, and sexism against men, from an analytic philosophy negative utilitarianism point of view. While making some strong points (I'd consider him the best analytic philosopher) his perspective is so strangled it ruins the whole thing. At the same time, people who aren't familiar with any kinds of radical argumentation fall for it quite easily.

He just came out with a book about how recent protests against the colonial university of cape town ruined the whole institution because identity politics etc. I'm actually very much looking forward to reading it because unless he's gone totally off the rails he will have (in a sense) tightly constructed but bullshit arguments which will be fun to dismantle.
