While the politically correct, or PC, movement has gained footing in most facets of modern day society, it doesn’t mean we should be complacent as citizens to follow suit. Jordan Peterson surely wont be, specifically when it comes to “preferred” gendered pronouns.
University of Toronto professor, Jordan Peterson, has gone on the record, and even written a news article for the Toronto Sun, on “Why I won’t use ‘preferred’ pronouns – and why you shouldn’t either”.
Peterson has come under fire for a series of videos he made, entitled “Professor against political correctness”.
Peterson drew some criticism for voicing his frustrations for the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s definition of “gender identity,” which is described as a person’s “sense of being a woman, a man, both, neither, or anywhere along the gender spectrum.”
“I don’t know what ‘neither’ means,” Peterson says in the video, “because I don’t know what the options are if you’re not a man or a woman. It’s not obvious to me how you can be both because those are, by definition, binary categories.
Jordan Peterson joined the Afternoon Drive with Kelly Cutrara, to discuss his side of the debate, and why the political correctness movement has gone too far.
