Go ahead, make my day…. Dr. Jordan Peterson (Video)

McMaster University’s Presidential Advisory Committee on Building an Inclusive Community wrote and posted a public letter on Mar 16 decrying my invitation from a student group to speak at that institution. In the same letter, they cast aspersions on my competence as a commentator on issues of gender and sexuality, describing me as “entirely unaware” of the “mountains of academic evidence” debunking the very existence of the categories of male and female. They further stated that my views “require critical questioning and contestation whenever and wherever they are articulated.”

How controversial U of T prof Jordan Peterson became a lightning rod

Jordan Peterson says he never set out to be a centre of controversy. But when that controversy came, he also didn’t turn away.

The University of Toronto psychology professor has found himself at the centre of a firestorm involving, depending on whom you ask, gender identity and freedom of speech — the result of his now-famous/infamous declaration to only call students “he” and “she,” and not “they” as some individuals in the transgender community prefer to be known. He also announced he was steadfastly opposed to Bill C-16, federal legislation that seeks to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination.

Making this stand on YouTube took Peterson onto computer screens around the world, and made him an academic celebrity of sorts.

He’s in Ottawa for two public speeches this week — one Thursday, the second Saturday at the Ottawa Public Library at 120 Metcalfe Street. (It’s from 2 to 5:30 p.m., seats are first come, first served.)
