In Canada, a professor stirred up a hornets’ nest of SJWs. His crime? Refusing to use gender neutral pronouns. The nerve of the bigot! Turns out the professor bothered so many people, students and teachers rallied together and conjured up a “tolerant” strategy to make him change his bad hombre ways. Here’s what they came up with…
University of Toronto faculty signed a letter criticizing hate speech against their transgender and black students in light of fellow professor [Peterson’s] refusal to use “genderless pronouns.” Some transgender students stopped attending class because they did not feel safe.
Approximately 250 faculty members endorsed the letter [because] Peterson lambasted current political correctness on campuses [and] refused to use gender neutral pronouns. The letter told Peterson that he must start using genderless pronouns if asked and that he needs to stop commenting publicly on the topic.
I’ll get to the meaty commentary after some brief mockery. Some tranny students “didn’t feel safe” because one professor refused to call them by their preferred gender pronoun. Let that sink in for a second. Didn’t feel safe. Pronouns.
And they wonder why we mock them.
Practically the entire campus wants to punish this guy for not participating in their progressiveness. Hundreds of them felt the need to put their heads together to “fix the problem.” And the solution they picked? A cowardly letter demanding Peterson to stop doing that stuff. “That stuff” referring to… things they don’t like, because feelings. Students are also being proactive by staging protests and harassing him on campus. But remember, he’s the bad guy here.
Pronouns. Safety. They’re bullying him because of words. Because he’s refusing to go along with their fantasy that they’re anything other than weirdos who feel threatened with pronouns.
So it’s come down to 250 people vs 1 dude. All because of words, or lack thereof. Have I crystalized this enough for you?
By the way, all this takes place in the land of “higher learning.” Friendly reminder: this is just another example to add to the ever growing list of why you shouldn’t go to college. Ever. Don’t even visit. Universities have evolved into breeding grounds for social justice sphincters… Now no school is safe from their paint peeling thought bubbles. Hence all the stories of college outrage and stupidity. We have an entire collection of them.
I know all this comes as zero surprise to most. For instance, Canada being a turd wagon? Hardly news (see Embarrassing: Canada Changes National Anthem to be ‘Inclusive.’ And It Sucks…). Combine Canada with universities and you’d expect to get this ideological flatulence.
Here we have an innocent chap harassed and bullied by bristling trannies until he conforms. Their reasoning? Everyone should be accepting of ALL identities… Unless your identity doesn’t adhere to leftist standards, of course. Welcome to Tolerance 101.
