Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe it's just dud research, and after closer investigation it will become apparant that the researcher has not understood something or has completely misconstrued things. That happens in the social sciences, doesn't it? In fact Mead was a famous victim of it, IIRC.

I'd bet against this thing being true. It's so extraordinary that it almost has to be a mistake.

There's a dispute over whether or not Mead was duped, how much she was duped, and why she was duped.  It's not so simple of a story.

But dud research does happen.
