I am blessed in many ways that my college English major advisor, the late Dr. Jim Blake, worked so hard to put the kibosh on any idea I might have had of being a college professor. It was the right call in so many ways.
But there are times I feel a tinge of regret, if only because it’s foreclosed any opportunity to pull an epic troll like this professor has done.
Essentially, calling someone ‘he’ or ‘she’ when they really want to be called ‘ze’ is on track to becoming on par with using racial slurs.
Peterson doesn’t like this one bit. In an effort to oppose the bill, he’s been attending free speech rallies and publishing articles online explaining his viewpoint.
In an interview with The Daily Signal, he said, “The law should be very careful when it mandates what people have to say.
There’s a big difference between being required to not say something, and being required to say something. One is closing your mouth. The other one is putting a hand inside you and forcing you to be a puppet.”
Don’t believe the article?
Puppetry is, of course, what academia is about these days.
