    Patriarchy Defender

    The totalitarian left doesn't just demand that their own point of view be heard. They want resisters like Peterson never to be heard. When he gives speeches, they bring bullhorns to drown him out.

    The pronoun controversy seems silly. "If somebody wants to be called ze or zir, why not?" I ask him for my next online video.

    "I don't care what people want to be called," he answered. "But that doesn't mean I should be compelled by law to call them that. The government has absolutely no business whatsoever ever governing the content of your voluntary speech."

    What if I politely asked him to call me ze?

    "We could have a conversation about that," says Peterson, "just like I would if you asked me to use a nickname. But there's a big difference between privately negotiated modes of address and legislatively demanded, compelled speech."

    That sounds like a reasonable, libertarian take on the issue, but for comments like that, Peterson is called "bigot," "Hitler," "transphobic piece of s---."

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    No way I am going to call a transgender what it wishes to be.
    If it was born a man its a he or him.
    Born a woman a she or her...

    It's called "enabling" and it should be stopped.
    Which part of "...shall not be infringed." do you not understand?

    If it is not libel nor slander, the highlighted part is really the key. It's not whether some wish to be called something or not, or some wish to call them that or not - it is about government involvement in free speech.

    It's a never-ending source of fascination to me how leftists, who continually scream about tyranny and facsism and all that are totally down with it as long as they're the ones in charge.
